Orchestration is the art of assigning all the notes in a particular piece of music to the different players of the orchestra. Well-composed music will always translate better into the orchestra. Finding balance and blend is the most important part of this program.
In this program, you will learn the skills necessary for success as a composer. You will learn about orchestral instruments, their notation, ranges, transposition, register strengths, and dynamic ability, and much more.
There will also be weekly compositional assignments, allowing you to practice more writing. In these assignments, you will get real-life practice using the information and techniques learned to write and develop your own harmonic progressions.
Each online lesson takes place between one teacher and one student for either 30 or 60 minutes.
Students need to have knowledge of music theory and solfège. If you do not already have a basic knowledge of music theory, it is recommended that you take a music theory course before enrolling in this course.
Although not a necessity, it is very beneficial that students have some ability to play an instrument.
Who this course is for:
All students of music with some experience or knowledge
Anyone who has always desired to learn how to write music
