Are you a music maker, performer, composer, or aspiring songwriter looking to up your game? This is the place to start.

It’s time to learn orchestration to give your music the power, the passion, and the prodigiousness that it deserves.

Orchestration is the study of each instrument in the orchestra, how they work, how to write for them, and how each instrument collides with the others to make new sounds. Think of it like painting: The orchestra is your palette of colors. But you don’t want to just mix them all together. You need to understand some principles of mixing those colors together before you put your brush on canvas.

In this series of classes we are going to work on three things:

  • Instrumentation: Knowing how all of the instruments in the orchestra work, and how to write for them in an idiomatic way
  • Composition: Using the orchestra to write powerful music. Learning how to blend the different sounds of the orchestra to make a new, unique, sound
  • Synthestration: Using common production software (Ableton Live, FL Studio, Logic Pro, Pro Tools, Cubase, etc.) to create a realistic orchestra sound using sample libraries

In this class, “Part 2: Brass, Voice, and Guitar” we are going to focus entirely on instrumentation – learning how to write for the brass (trumpet, trombone, french horns, and tuba) the voice (soprano, mezzo-soprano, alto, counter-tenor, tenor, baritone, bass), percussion, guitar and other fretted instruments, piano, accordion, and more.
