Musical Form

How can you construct music into memorable and satisfying natural structures?

In modern composing, we have the freedom to go wherever we want. But if we know “form”, we can know that our structures will invite better comprehension.

Even in the most atonal and abstract of underlying material, if you wrap it into a formal structure, it becomes comprehendible.

Like chapters in a book ... the words can be esoteric. But if it's structured, it gives the listener the ability to contextualize and digest the information relative to the other information.

Organization helps define and delineate the ideas no matter how complex, nondescript, sound design, or musical the underlying material.

Learn the structural formats that will allow your music to transcend function and be in demand as concert works and as higher art.

Frequently Asked Questions

When does the class start and finish?
Begin right now! It is a completely self-paced online educational program - you decide when you start and when you finish, and you can re-watch classes as many times as you wish.
How long do I have access to the class, curriculum, teachers, materials and forums?
In traditional in-person classes you do not get access to the instruction beyond the first day. We are happy to inform you that at the online Film Scoring Academy you will have access to the classes, mentorship, materials, forum discussions, and any supplemental new content as it comes for a period of 1 year, and can renew access annually for 10% of the most current retail price for the program.
What if I am unhappy with the class?
We would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase within the first 30 days, stop immediately and contact us and we will give you a refund for the portion of the program you did not activate. We're sorry, but if you already activated a section, we have no way of knowing if you watched it or not, and just like real university, once you have taken a class you cannot "untake" it. You have been delivered the education and those classes cannot be refunded. You will be refunded for those classes you did not take only.
