Teaching

I am offering composition tuition for a range of topics including harmony, counterpoint, musical form and orchestration.

Four-Part Harmony

In this course we'll start from scratch, assuming no previous notation skills, and gradually build up to write full Bach-style chorales for four voices. This tried and tested approach to learning harmony has been the basis of composition studies for centuries.

Counterpoint

In this course we start with simple one-voice melodic writing in order to hone the skill of writing effective melodies. We then gradually add voices and complexities of rhythm, until we reach the point where we can write full canons in four to five voices.

Musical Form

This course starts from the smallest components of music above individual notes - figures and phrases. Moving up through sentences, themes/subjects to sections and then to whole movements we discover how a set of simple principles (repetition, contrast, A/B, A/B/A) can be used to form highly complex symphonic movements.

Orchestration

In this course we'll progress from writing etudes for solo instruments from each family (e.g. Oboe, Flute, Violin, French Horn, etc) through section writing (strings, brass, woodwind, percussion) to finally writing for full symphonic orchestra. Along the way we'll learn about the peculiarities of register and dynamics of all the orchestral instruments and become intimately acquainted with the natural, "idiomatic" sound of each instrumental voice.
