Program Information

The Farabius Academy of Music offers private sessions for those who want to learn how to compose music. We would love to help you learn music composition from our certified educators. We offer private lessons through an innovative and engaging curriculum for our students. Our unique approach to musical education facilitates a fast and practical learning experience for students.

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 orchestration lesson takes place between one teacher and one student for either 30 or 60 minutes.
