Having a hard time writing orchestral music?
Can you hear the music in your head...
but you don’t know how is it done?
   
Do you know the sound that you want... 
but you don’t know what to do with the Strings, Brass, Woodwinds?

Do you have a melody/harmony sketch... 
but you wonder how to organize them in the orchestra?

We feel your pain. Every composer has been there at some point. It’s frustrating!

We believe in live orchestras. Do you?

 Real musicians create real music. 
Not sample libraries (these are just a means to an end).

Do you want orchestras to perform your music, but you’re stuck with sample libraries that you don’t even like how they sound?

Do you seat in front of your notation software (or DAW) and you're looking at Strings, Brass, and Woods and have little idea what to do with them? I know how it feels!

What's My Investment?
 The cost of not taking action
Are you working on the type of PROJECTS that you want?

What skills do you need to build to move closer to those projects?

WHY aren’t you working on the type of projects that you love?

Could it be that makes you nervous to go after bigger projects that need a live orchestra?

Or is it maybe because you prefer to stay in your comfort zone, working on lower budget projects with not enough budget for musicians?

Have you ever felt that way? Ever listened to someone else’s music and felt their music is better than yours?

It’s time to stop that feeling now and take action!

Most of the times – when our career slows down – the chokehold of our career is never our music. It’s always ourselves and our psychology!

Stretch yourself!

If you want to truly grow as a composer, you need to step outside your comfort zone.

Push yourself to new heights. Learn new skills. Embrace new opportunities.

The time is now!

Each lesson has been split into bite-sized chunks so you don't get overwhelmed with a flood of information. Take the course at your own pace, and really study the lessons as you apply the actionable lessons to your business.
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.

   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.

*Conditions apply. Please read Terms and conditions.
30 DAY MONEY BACK GUARANTEE
If you're not satisfied with the courses, get in touch within 30 days and we'll give you a full refund.*
