The compositional study participant package will make it possible for me to share my theories and concepts about composition with you through the prism of a single composition, “Into The Light”, which I feel is the most representative composition on my latest CD, “Lyric”. The lesson will consist of a thorough orchestrational and structural analysis of the piece, by way of a downloadable lecture/demonstration. However, it won’t be confined to “Into The Light”; I will use other musical examples, as well.
In addition to receiving a complete score of “Into The Light”, you will also get preliminary sketches and diagrams, which will help to outline the development of the piece.
Through email, you will be able to post weekly questions, which I will answer, if possible (if there is an unusually high volume of questions, I will limit the number of answers to seven). I will also occasionally post questions for you to answer. Also, a streaming audio interview with me speaking about salient sections of the CD, “Lyric”, will be offered.
And last, but not least, a download of “Lyric” will be available, for your listening pleasure. Thank you and be well,
