'I love the way you've explained some of your theory - very clear and concise. Working my way through your material. Thanks for taking the time - it's an amazing resource.' Jon Bowen, Assistant Principal, HOD Performing Arts and Music, St Peters College.
Course / Program:
The Writing Musician will give a solid musical foundation without a student having to leave their home. First you learn how to read and write music - essential for writing any sort of music – pop, rock, jazz or orchestral. We learn how to write for a drummer, study chords and harmony, and then how to write these chords for a band or orchestra (basic arranging).
Then we learn how to write these chords for brass, strings and woodwinds. These instruments only play one note at a time and need every one of them written. Finally, there is a very compressed course on counterpoint. We must know this to keep movement in the music but don't want a rhythm section. It's a great knowledge to have.

- Chords and Harmony
