Composition Foundations is the perfect course for musicians and producers who either have no music theory background -- or need a tune-up. Even intermediate and advanced students have found this fundamentals course invaluable, and it lays the foundations for the more advanced topics in the Composition Program. (4 x hours of video)
In the second module we begin to explore more advanced composition. This is where we look more closely at the toolkit you will use to create better tracks, faster. You will also get to work on your own track with your mentor and find answers to your specific composition challenges. (8 hours of video)
In the third module of the online music composition course we build upon the core Next Level Composition techniques and move onto the artistry of orchestration. This module is all about how we take strong melody and chord progressions and build them out into fully developed tracks. You will study a range of genres from classics to EDM to learn the core principles that are universal across all genres so that you can apply them to your own tracks. This is how you come to develop as a producer rather than follow only genre specific examples that limit your possibilities. Once again, you will get to work on your own tracks with your mentor.

"I loved that I learned more about certain aspects of composition than in the 4 years of schooling I paid a lot of money for. While a lot of the course was a review, Kristin had experience in the real world writing music as opposed to my professors in the Academic world mostly teaching theory and sharing very little experience."
"Loved the music composition course! I highly recommend this class to anyone looking to take their Composition to the next level. Kristin was amazing and very helpful!"
"I'm a self taught musician, and although I thought that I had a good idea of theory, I pretty much knew only the basics. This course threw me in the deep end, but Kristin was there all the way to prevent me from drowning and my knowledge of theory has improved considerably."
