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.
