This mini course is included in Cinematic Music Creation!

If you've already purchased my flagship course Cinematic Music Creation, Composition and Musical Development is already included in the course!

I've made this mini course available on its own if you're only interested in learning about mixing and mastering. For a more in-depth look at the entire composing process, including arranging, music theory, and orchestration, check out Cinematic Music Creation!

Composition and Musical Development

Everything you need to know in order to start, develop, and finish your compositions without any of the frustration.

I keep getting stuck. How do I come up with new musical ideas?!


That's probably the #1 question I hear, and understandably so! When inspiration hits, it's usually one beautiful melody or a moving chord progression at a time, not an entire masterpiece! It can be so hard to expand upon our initial ideas and take them further.

Sometimes, you may feel stuck altogether. Maybe you're feeling unmotivated and writing feels like a chore. What do you do then? Should we wait for inspiration to strike?

Definitely not.

Like anything, composing is a form of exercise. The more you do it, the more frequently you produce good material that you're happy with. It takes patience, determination, and focus.

However, it's hard to compose when you're not sure what you're doing. You can try out ideas for hours on end, but if you're left with nothing by the end of it, it can feel devastating.

Not only do you need to know the WHAT, you need the HOW.

Many YouTube tutorials and educational institutions teach the theory behind the compositional process, but don't necessarily apply it to real-life examples when you're actually in your studio racking your brain for a new idea.

And that can only hurt you in the long run.

Composing without hurdles is so possible. You just need to know how, and I'm going to make sure you do.

Composition and Musical Development

Everything you need to know in order to start, develop, and finish your compositions without any of the frustration.

Composition & Musical Development includes:

  1. My Composing Approach - including my 2 core philosophies that I swear by.
  2. Writing a Simple Melody over a Chord Progression - it doesn't get much simpler than this!
  3. How to Develop an Idea - using Twinkle Twinkle, we explore some options to add another section of music to the song.
  4. How John Williams Develops a Bridge (Star Wars) - let's dive into the inner workings of this particular section in the Star Wars main theme.
  5. Analyzing John Williams' theme from ET (Flying Theme) - we can learn so much from this piece! Some great devices going on in here.
  6. Writing a Piece from Scratch (start to finish) - watch over my shoulder as I write a Disney-style piece. This one's worth the admission price alone! :D
  7. Making Arrangement & Orchestration Decisions - thinking ahead to how I want to arrange and orchestrate this piece!
By the time you reach the end of this course, you will:

  • Write melodies and harmonies with ease
  • Know exactly what to do if you're stuck with an idea and have no idea how to take it further
  • Learn how John Williams approaches his music and develops his themes
  • Understand the importance of structure, and why structure should guide your compositions
  • Learn how I use music theory and the 'inner ear' to write a Disney piece filled with modulations, unique chord progressions, and soaring melodies
  • And much more!

On top of that, I've got a bonus for you...

As a bonus, you'll also receive my video module on sample libraries, software and hardware I recommend for anyone to get started in orchestral composition! It normally sells for $50, but it's included in your copy of Composition & Musical Development, absolutely free.

So just to recap, here's what you'll receive when you purchase today:

So how much does this course cost?


Traditional music programs at university can cost over $8,000/year, as mine did! Online courses are another option, but I've seen some being sold at $3,000 apiece
Private lessons and coaching can run you upwards of $150/hour, which I've had when going through my musical studies, so those don't come cheap either.
I want to make this course as affordable for you as possible, so when you join today you'll have access to all the material for one payment of $97!
