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!

My name is Marc Sabatella, and I am the founder and director of the Mastering MuseScore School. I am one of the developers and ambassadors for MuseScore, the free and open source notation software. I have been teaching music online since the dawn of the World Wide Web, and I have been teaching in person for even longer. From the publication of my groundbreaking "Jazz Improvisation Primer" back in the 1990’s, to my years on the faculty at major music schools, and culminating in this Mastering MuseScore School, I have dedicated most of my life to helping as many musicians as I can.
