Online Composition Lessons

I offer online instruction in classical or musical theater composition. In my many years as a composer I’ve honed and developed an approach that I love to share with composers at all levels. If you’re working on a new piece and need feedback, we can go through it together and explore possibilities for improvement. If you’re looking to develop new musical techniques or strategies, I can suggest various possibilities. My focus is always on creating the most satisfying harmonic and melodic structures possible. I work with Sibelius music notation software and can also help you get the most out of that program.

Topics to explore:

- melodic structure

- chord progressions

- text setting

- voice leading

- choral writing

- orchestration

- music theory concepts
