The Making Of...

Learn the concepts and techniques used in creation of a variety of real scores!

In this course, we will take a look inside the scores for various pieces of music, to gain an understanding of what makes them tick and how we can use these ideas in our own music. Each lesson will focus on a different composition, representing a variety of composers and genres, and each will have its own story to tell and concepts to teach.

Studying the works of others is one of the best ways to learn, and Marc Sabatella has the right combination of experience in classical music, jazz, and popular music, as well as a unique perspective of his own to share.

We anticipate getting started this fall, and will be adding other courses as well. Enroll now for free to be informed about updates!
