Group Coaching
You will have the opportunity to work through any roadblocks you encounter during our Group Coaching Meetings. These are specific times the teachers at Cinematic Composing will be available inside of a video chat room where you can jump in to have your burning questions answered. Stay for as long as you'd like to listen in on other people’s questions, or leave as soon as you have your questions answered. These often turn into impromptu lessons as I elaborate on specific topics or start digging into someone's composing career.
Private Group With Everyone In The Community
Interact with other students who are going through some of your same struggles. Everyone inside of the community will be participating in group discussions inside our group. This will be a constant source of encouragement, accountability, community, and a place where lifelong friends will be forged.

About Marc Jovani
For nearly ten years, Marc Jovani has been working at the highest level of film, providing music for many major studios such as Lionsgate, Syfy, FOX and most recently NETFLIX. He has also composed music for television shows and movies distributed on leading, nationally broadcasted television channels, including Lifetime (USA), TF1 (France), the Hallmark Channel (USA), Canale 5 (Italy), Antena 3 (Spain), HBO (USA) and more. 

Having received international recognition for numerous prestigious productions, Marc’s ability to enhance the experience of the audience is what makes him unique. Jovani’s ability to elevate onscreen drama through his well defined musical voice is what makes his contribution so valuable.

His scores have been then recorded with some of the best orchestras and have been conducted by the composer himself in renowned studios such as the historic Eastwood Scoring Stage at Warner Bros studios in Burbank, The EastWest Scoring Stage in Hollywood, The Bridge Recording in Glendale, and the Village Studios in Los Angeles, among others. In addition to conventional musical composition, Marc specialises in contemporary hybrid scores. In combining modern electronic elements with the now standard orchestral pallet, Marc creates a unique and identifiable sonic identity for every project.

The quality of the above-mentioned productions is illustrated by the national and international accolades they have received, as well as their selection for exhibition at numerous widely attended and high-profile international film festivals.
Praise For The 'Symphonic Virtual Orchestration' Course

John Powell - Film Composer (How to Train Your Dragon)

“Andy Hill has the ability to deconstruct and explain the process of writing film scores with extraordinary clarity, all the while imbuing the subject with a fervor that should, in my opinion, be reserved only for European football matches and Baptist revival meetings.”

Christopher Young - Film Composer (Spider-Man)

You MUST get this – While most analytical books are written by academics, Andy was right there in the thick of things as a member of the Disney music department, while the majority of the scores in the book were actually being recorded. Not to mention, it is so alive with his mad passion for film music.

Conrad Pope - Composer/Orchestrator (Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone)

“Andy Hill is among the handful of penetrating minds and ears engaged in film music today.”

Bruce Broughton - Composer (Silverado)

“Andy Hill’s ‘Scoring the Screen’ is, like its author, thoughtful, incisive and full of solidly interesting insights into the technique, craft and emotional magic of film scores and the composers who create them.”

Daniel Carlin - Professor & Chair/Director, Scoring for Motion Pictures and Television, Thornton School of Music, University of Southern California

“Andrew Hill displays the comprehensive knowledge, wisdom, and reverence required to provide informed and practical insight into the art and craft of composing screen music. His background as a practicing musician, Disney studio music-executive, and college-level educator enables him to intelligently—and sometimes amusingly—reveal the magic behind the film-composer’s curtain.”

Robert Townson - Film Music Producer (Varèse Sarabande Records and Varèse Live)

“Andy presents his case that the finest composers to have worked in film over the last eighty years have contributed genuine masterpieces of music and drama to our culture. A film score must excel at both to be successful, and this is so beautifully illustrated in Hill’s elegant prose

Having produced new recordings of To Kill A Mockingbird — with Elmer Bernstein — and Patton — with Jerry Goldsmith — and examined these and other scores in great detail with the composers themselves, I found myself very moved by Hill’s like-minded analysis. Part of the film composer’s art is in fact to conceal the effort and the intellect that goes in to the creation of their scores. Hill thankfully lifts the veil. I am thrilled to see such a rare spotlight illuminating the artistry behind these masterworks.”

What others have asked
before joining Orchestration 1: From Sketch to Orchestra Lite
   I don't have time to take this course right now. Should I still buy it?
CUSTOM JAVASCRIPT / HTML
BUT you can go at your own pace. Don’t need to follow the course’s schedule.  The course materials do not expire and you’ll have access to them for life. Even for the future course updates and improvements!

The duration is 6-8 weeks approx. You can do it a bit faster, or take as much time as you want/need. 

Or you could even take advantage of the discount now, and be doing the course later. The chat sessions get recorded and you can watch the replay whenever you want.

Also, you’ll have access to the course materials for life, as well as to the Facebook group AND the weekly chats. You can join any weekly chat that you want, even if your course has finished.
   Does this course include assignments?
You can include assignments at any time.

The $97 version of this course doesn't include assignments, but if you want to add assignments to this course, you can always buy assignments revisions later on at a reduced price inside the course.

CUSTOM JAVASCRIPT / HTML
   How long will I have access to the Orchestration course materials?
You’ll have access to the course materials for life, as well as to the Facebook group AND the weekly chats. You can join any weekly chat that you want, even if your course has finished. And the chat sessions are recorded, so you can watch them at any time.
   I don't understand English. Is this course in any other language as well?
All the videos are in English and French.
   I cannot read music and have never taken orchestration classes or anything like that. I have learned everything by ear. Will I still be able to successfully complete the course?
Honestly, we have lots of fun and engaging conversations with students who don’t have formal training. Sometimes, when you’ve got a lot of training you can develop complexes or insecurities about what is right or wrong, what you should or shouldn’t do when composing, and so forth.
We’re recently getting more students who don’t read music and instead produce by ear. 

If you’re one of those with little or no traditional formal training, you’ll still gain loads of practical, useful information and experience in this course.
   How is the course build? And is there some kind of certificate we receive at the end?
The course consists of weekly lessons, based on videos and PDFs. The course also includes weekly live video-chats with Miguel or the Cinematic Composing teachers and the rest of the students, and a private Facebook group where you can ask questions.

Once you get access to the private Facebook group, you'll be able to join periodical masterclasses with Hollywood composers and mixing engineers for free. The last ones we did were with Spider Man composer Christopher Young, Riverdale composer Blake Neely, and mixing engineer Bobby Fernandez, among others.

At the end of the course, you'll get a certificate of completion.
   Do you have a refund policy?
Yes. We are giving you a full 30 DAYS to go through the training, implement what you learn, and watch your production skills begin to grow.

If you reach out within 30 days to show us that you haven’t seen any progress, then we’ll be happy to return the investment.
