Arranging is the adaptation of a piece of music to a specific vocal and/or instrumental combination. This vocal and instrumental combination may range from a single performer, with or without a small supporting group, to a full orchestra. The success of an arrangement depends on the arranger’s musical technique, good taste, and his or her ability to enhance the music in a way that is pleasing to both performers and listeners. To this end, arrangers often modify and stylize a piece of music to the extent that they are adding their own musical ideas. In this way, arranging may involve a certain amount of composition. There are many elements to consider in arranging music: form, instrumentation, style, tonality, melody, harmony, rhythm, etc.

In theater, if you get the hook, that means a very bad thing. Imagine an oversized umbrella hook grabbing the performers off the stage for a performance that is less than satisfying. In music, however, a hook is a very good thing. If your song has a good hook, you've grabbed your audience. You got their attention. You probably have a musical hit on your hands, too.
