MIDI Mockups: Orchestral Instrumentation

COURSE 2+ hours beginner Beginner • 6 videos
Author: Chris Fitzgerald

Learning to compose for orchestra is a challenge! In MIDI Mockups: Orchestral Instrumentation, you will be immersed in symphonic music as we discuss key composers in the history of western music, and analyze scores breaking the orchestra up into sections by family (strings, woodwinds, brass and percussion) and then by individual instrument. You will become familiar with each instrument’s range, tonal characteristics, and typical function. In addition, you will learn MIDI sequencing techniques, and you will have a demo mockup of an existing score by the end of the course.

Game Audio Essentials

Students are recommended to own or have access to a computer with MIDI sequencing and audio recording software to complete the course challenges.

Scorbit has become a vital source of knowledge for me as a composer. The video tutorials are very informative and allow me to learn composing techniques that I just can’t find anywhere else. The team at Scorbit is always there to answer my questions and it is very evident that they enjoy seeing composers and musicians learn and succeed. Keep up the great work!

I’m in for the long haul because the tutorials are presented so well. I have developed a Scorbit addiction.

After two Scorbit courses, I’ve emerged with a strong skill set that has given me confidence in my film scoring abilities.
Charis D.
Other than Scorbit, the only quality intensive resources I’ve found for learning at home are unfortunately out of my price range at a grand a pop. The quality at Scorbit seems fully on par to what I got at Berklee College of Music. Bravo!
