INDEPENDENT STUDY IN ORCHESTRATION
Learn orchestration with YOUR MUSIC!! (any style!)
Since many composition students and orchestrators have already taken a class or course or two in orchestration, probably own all the critical orchestration texts including the Adler, and already understand the basics of instrumentation (winds, brass, percussion, and strings) — the way this site can be different is to offer online ORCHESTRATION LESSONS as Evaluations, Tips, and Analysis Reports of YOUR MUSIC, and your scoring projects.
If you’re interested in these evaluations from STUDY ORCHESTRATION ONLINE, select one of the choices below and send one, two, or three scores or works (send PDF and mp3, please), and within 3-4 business days you will receive back BY EMAIL, a 5+ page report on the orchestration/scoring/voicing issues, concerns, and more of your original music.
ORCHESTRATION ANALYSIS & EVALUATION: WHAT YOU’LL RECEIVE:
You’ll get a detailed five (5+) page PDF report on all aspects of your orchestration – for very long works – you may get concentrated analysis on the opening passages and opening pages. At least one full hour of analysis will be devoted to each work including, but not limited to:
- Orchestration issues, problems, and scoring concerns will be identified — with possible solutions
- Other issues will be raised that deal with the way your orchestration and scoring supports [or thwarts] the other aspects of your composition, including formal design
- Other possible compositional topics raised by your scoring and orchestration
- Other specific factors and advice related to your music will be addressed
After the completed paypal transaction, you will receive a DIRECT EMAIL address to send one mp3 recording and one PDF score per lesson/analysis report… (for longer works, it’s possible to use the same work for more than one report!)
Orchestration Evaluation: One Original Work: $47 USD
Orchestration Evaluation: Two Original Works: $90 USD
Orchestration Evaluation: Three Original Works: $140 USD
