Our goal with this online course is to educate musicians about the fundamentals of orchestration in a new and interactive way. This course is our way of giving back to the musical community. I believe that education is more important than just products and we are committed to providing every musician the means to improve their knowledge and skills.
I hope you will use these principles of orchestration in your own music and that what you will learn here will benefit you for years to come.
