Composing Can Be Frustrating and Overwhelming…
You love music and composing and have been dabbling or done some paid work, but something’s holding you back.

If you’re like a lot of hobby composers, you’ve taken all the courses, bought all the equipment, and you still feel like composing is hard. Like… it just doesn’t come together easily.

Does this sound familiar? You...

Have a melody/harmony sketch but you don’t know how to turn it into a full-blown orchestral score
Can hear the music in your head, but you don’t know how it’s done
Don’t know where to start
Are overwhelmed with music theory and composition techniques
Don’t know which library to buy to compose orchestral music
Have taken a bunch of courses but still don’t have a workflow that is efficient and consistently delivers music that you’re proud of
Get a headache each time you think about production, mixing and mastering
Feel paralysed choosing from the thousands of plugins

OR...

You’re able to get started but you constantly experience the “it-has-to-be-a-masterpiece” effect and you’re not completely satisfied with the final result and you keep going and going and never know when to stop or when your track it’s good enough.

Or maybe you actually know where to start... the problem is that as soon as you start you get depressed by the “reference track vs my track” effect, or…

You’ve got this feeling when listening to someone else's music: it’s like you understand how’s been composed and it seems so simple and easy...but when you sit down in front of a blank paper the inspiration doesn’t come and you don’t know where to start… 

This is what I hear ALL. THE. TIME.

“I have all these musical ideas spinning in my head but I don’t know how to organize them and make a 
finished musical piece out of them!”

Here’s the truth: just like you, every pro composer has felt the way you do at some time in their career. 

So what’s the one big secret that makes a composer into a pro? 

Confidence!

(I know you may be thinking, “It’s skill – not confidence – … skill in composing and business, both! Confidence with crap music doesn't get very far!”… I know, but keep reading…)

At this point, you’re probably wondering, “how the heck do I get more confident with my composing!?”

It’s simple: confidence comes from competence. Competence comes from practice. But not just any old self-guided practice where you keep making the same mistakes… the kind where your skills are being incrementally improved every day with expert feedback, support, pro shortcuts, and starting with the right tools.

Music is practice. Period.
Danny Elfman did not go to college to learn the art of film composing. Hans Zimmer rejected formal training as he disliked the discipline of formal lessons.
   
You don’t need tons of knowledge. You need the right knowledge at the right time.

You won’t get any good by reading every single book on the shelf. You’ll get good by practicing. Practice over time creates skill.

Excessive knowledge (i.e. expensive/multi-year college degree) = distraction to your main focus
How fast could you learn if you eliminated all the fluff and consumed the right knowledge?

1. Consume the Right Knowledge
2. Practice (aka. start working on your craft)
3. Grow your composing skill

Minimum effective dose = the knowledge that moves you faster in the direction you need to go.

Once you start growing and once you start finding new challenges… then (!) you’ll know what new knowledge you need to consume (aka. just-in-time learning).

What do you really want? 

a) A fancy (and expensive) diploma by XYZ university to collect dust on your shelf (but looks really really nice ;) … 

b) or the no-fluff no-bs knowledge that you truly need to get the career that you want?
 
If you’re option A), go the Berklee (USC, UCLA, etc) route. Prepare to spend multiple tens of thousands of dollars and a few years of your life. You’ll get all the knowledge that you need and much much more.
 
If you’re option B) and you want to collapse years of learning into days... find the experts who’ve already put the 10,000 hours. Anything that you want to learn in the world, someone else has figured it out already. So, tap into the people who are teaching from experience and take a quantum leap. 

“The secret of getting ahead is getting started.”

Introducing Music Theory and Composition Master

- The new fast track to feeling confident with orchestral composition -

Imagine the feeling of knowing how to create orchestral compositions in 21 styles (a.k.a. having the tools and confidence to win gigs). That’s what you’ll get from our new Music Theory and Composition Master, where you’ll learn everything you need to know to compose orchestral music... in just 30 days! (yes, we guarantee it)

There are so many courses out there that teach you different elements of composition – the theory, the technical aspects, different types of composition. These courses are great, but doing too many courses can leave you feeling confused and overwhelmed. And that’s where a lot of composers get stuck.

That’s why we’ve combined all of our industry knowledge and expertise into one foundational course. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced composer, this is THE course to give you the skills, confidence, and tools to write in any style.

As a Music Theory and Composition Master (MTCM) student you’ll:

  • Be confident composing in a wide range of emotions 
  • Beat writer’s block
  • ​Learn music production, mixing and mastering
  • ​Have a structured process for composing
  • ​Finish with a demo reel of your own compositions
  • ​Know the practical way of composing quickly, without procrastination or mental blocks
  • ​Feel like you've completed years of study and saved money on education
  • ​Get support from your teachers and a community of composers like you
  • ​Feel ready to use your orchestral composition skills to get more gigs
Daily Live Classes*
1:1 Coaching
Live Q&A Sessions
Assignment Revisions

*Every live interaction gets recorded. You can catch the replay later if you can’t attend. Or you can schedule a 1:1 session if you’ve got more specific questions. 

At the end of the course, you’ll have a structured approach and techniques to: 

  • Get started every time you compose (in any style) 
  • ​Develop your sketch into a full-blown orchestral score
  • ​Produce your music (mixing and mastering)

And you’ll feel confident and ready to take on paid projects, no matter what the style or media.

Miguel Vallejo - Composer

"Initially, when I bought the Symphonic Virtual Orchestration course (SVO), I had no idea about how to compose orchestral music. The SVO course helped me set the fundamentals. With this new experience, I took the MTCM course. 

So far I’ve learned a really clear understanding of each style, and what and how to write in each one of the styles. This gave me confidence in my ability that I didn’t have two weeks ago."

“Gave me confidence in my ability that I didn’t have two weeks ago!
I actually wrote two action tracks in real-time during a lesson with my keyboard and I’m not a piano player!”

Meet Marc 
Your Teacher And Expert Composer
  • Berklee Online teacher for 8 years
  • Co-founder of Cinematic Composing
  • Los Angeles based composer actively working in the industry
Hi, I’m Marc, your teacher and course creator. 

I’m a composer who lives in LA and is actively working in the industry. I’ve also been a music teacher for just over 15 years, starting with teaching piano to kids, then teaching composition, film music, orchestration and MIDI orchestration at Berklee Online. In 2017 I launched my own online composition school, Cinematic Composing where my team of awesome teachers and I trained over 2,000 students.

I first started studying music at age six with guitar lessons, then started in a conservatory at age seven, spending 13 years studying there. In my early 20’s I decided I wanted to be a composer, so I started more studies, firstly at Berklee then USC. All in all, I spent over 20 years studying music and more than $50,000 on my education.

Why am I telling you this? Yes, it shows that I’ve got the background and experience to put together a course like this. But also because I’m giving you all of my knowledge, bringing together everything you need to compose… without spending tens of thousands of dollars and over 20 years like I did (not to mention all of my painful “trial and error” experiences in this industry!).

The one big thing that holds composers like you back is a lack of confidence. That’s why I’ve compiled all the fundamentals - the foundational elements you need – along with the tools, shortcuts and hands-on learning, into one course. 
It’s the one place where you’ll learn music composition, production, mixing and mastering.

You’ll finish this course with a Demo Reel of your own 30-second compositions in 21 different styles. Just imagine for a moment how confident you’ll feel with each success, as you create your own pieces!

What really lights me up about what I do is hearing my students say things like, “I wrote my first [concert music piece / movie score / TV show / library music / choir arrangement / trailer track / game soundtrack / licensed my first track] ever”. Yes, that’s a long list, because this course is the foundation for any orchestral composition. My goal is for you to finish this course ready to compose, and to hear you tell me that you’ve achieved success in the medium you love.

Marc
What are you waiting for? Enroll and join us to compose with confidence.
Opening enrollment on December Friday 20th through Monday 23rd.
Limited to 30 students. Join the waiting list and you'll have access to enroll one day before everyone else.

Watch a summary of the last few classes we've been teaching!!

Here’s what you’ll learn 

This is unlike every other course out there because it combines the technical and composition knowledge you actually need while your confidence grows as your reel of sample compositions grows. You’ll get all of Marc’s years of experience, higher education, and all the things he’s figured out, in a new approach to learning.
Music Theory and Composition Master (MTCM) is a 30-day composing course that’s your fast track to confidence with orchestral composition and success to composing for movies, TV, games, library music, concert, or any other media!  
You might be thinking at this point: how can you learn all that in 30 days? 

This course is for action takers who are ready to go all in. People who want to see real results. 

We’ll deliver one Live Video Lesson every day for 30 days. In these lessons, you’ll learn about a particular style or technique, live, with the ability to ask questions and get coaching. 

These lessons are interactive. Each class has three parts:

Part #1
PASSIVE LEARNING

Style Definition, Step by Step, Tips & Tricks
Marc teaches the concept (or musical style) that you have to learn.  

PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT “theory”. This is the HOW to do it. This is the “horizontal” solution (how to combine the right musical elements to write in one specific style) explained the simplest possible way.

Part #2 - ACTIVE LEARNING

Interactive composition: compose live with Marc, step-by-step, one step at a time, and finish the class with a short piece that you can include in your reel.
Marc composes live so you can see exactly how it’s done. Then, he challenges YOU to repeat what he is doing. He puts a timer and pushes you to apply the concepts that you just learned. You’ll be creating the sketch, orchestrating, and creating the mockup for a short piece of music in the style you just learned. This means that by just attending (or watching) each class, at the end of the 30 days you’ll have 21 short musical pieces in 21 different styles. 

Part #3
MODEL WHAT WORKS

Score Analysis
At the end of the lesson, we analyze a music score. You’ll learn the secrets of successful scores and how to use these for inspiring your own creations.
But what if you can’t make one of the lessons? 
That’s fine because each lesson is recorded and you can watch the replay in your own time. You also have access to all the content for life. 

And if you prefer learning in a live classroom environment, MTCM will run every month, so you can catch up whenever you choose by joining a future course 
(got more questions?  Click here for answers)
Music Theory and Composition Master is the most comprehensive Composition curriculum you can find online today. It includes the most important components of college-level composition course.

Michael Broyles 

I have always wanted to compose music. I come from an IT background and have very little experience. I have been in IT for over 25 years. During that time my path within IT was not done by doing a 4-year college, however; it was all either online or attending week-long courses. These classes can be expensive and are necessary to advance in one's career. Even after 25 years, it is still significantly cheaper than 4 years of college and paid big dividends in my career. Zero regrets by taking a different non-traditional route. That is what made this class easier for me to enroll in.

Marc is thinking outside of the box by not following the traditional educational route. In my book that is a good thing. The way we learn and collaborate is changing in the world and I see that every day.

Having access to Facebook groups, the playbacks, the ability to retake the course if needed. The 1 on 1 opportunities and the hands-on experience are invaluable. If you learn this way and like being able to ask questions while learning, then, look seriously at this course. Having access to options ask yourself where else are you going to get that kind of focused attention in your education or even your career.  

You are only going to go as far as you apply yourself in anything you do. Think of this course as 30 days of intense, focused, hands-on training with an experienced professional. You are not going to get that in an instructor-led classroom.

“I encourage you to take examine this course and think of it as an investment in your future. This is not some boring class that you are going to fall asleep in. It will keep you on your toes and engaged. You will be pushed and challenged. You will even realize you can achieve great things by using that approach. Can you say that about all of your traditional education? Zero regrets by taking a different non-traditional route again!  !”

Michael Broyles 

I have always wanted to compose music. I come from an IT background and have very little experience. I have been in IT for over 25 years. During that time my path within IT was not done by doing a 4-year college, however; it was all either online or attending week-long courses. These classes can be expensive and are necessary to advance in one's career. Even after 25 years, it is still significantly cheaper than 4 years of college and paid big dividends in my career. Zero regrets by taking a different non-traditional route. That is what made this class easier for me to enroll in.

Marc is thinking outside of the box by not following the traditional educational route. In my book that is a good thing. The way we learn and collaborate is changing in the world and I see that every day.

Having access to Facebook groups, the playbacks, the ability to retake the course if needed. The 1 on 1 opportunities and the hands-on experience are invaluable. If you learn this way and like being able to ask questions while learning, then, look seriously at this course. Having access to options ask yourself where else are you going to get that kind of focused attention in your education or even your career.

Theresa Rubino 

Music has been a lifelong passion of mine. One I’ve spent many years studying both at the collegiate level and privately. There is no question that learning orchestration in a live environment with Marc as a guide has made all the difference!  
Prior to taking this course, I understood the basic ideas of orchestration but was never really able (or disciplined) to apply it. The purpose of this course is to make you compose and orchestrate, not just understand how to do it. It was definitely challenging and pushed me out of my comfort zone. There were many moments of frustration and my technical abilities were a constant hurdle, but I advanced in a way I wouldn’t have had I not taken this course.  

"I liken it to having a coach that pushes you to do something you never thought you could. It’s not always easy or comfortable, but the end result made it worthwhile!

FAQs
About Music Theory and Composition Master
  30 days…? How can I learn this much in 30 days?
   When does the course start?
9th December 2019, so you can start 2020 strong. Due to the Christmas season there will be two weeks break from December 23rd to January 5th, so this edition of the course ends on January 25th. After that, every 30 days the live classes will start again.
CUSTOM JAVASCRIPT / HTML
   How do I access the course materials?
Once you enroll, you get immediate access to all the course content (except to the live classes! :) You’ll receive a welcome email with the login information to your student dashboard. Once you log in you’ll find all your courses.
   How much time will I need to complete the course each week?
I go live every weekday to teach a lesson. This is my commitment.
If you put the same commitment that I put – that means, if you attend the sessions (or watch the replay) and do your part during the live sessions (interactive composition), then that’s all you need to do. You may want to spend some extra time after the class, if you didn’t have time to finish your track during the class, but I give you enough time to work during the live session.
   What if I can’t keep up with lessons?
We get that sometimes life happens, so if you can’t keep up you can access lesson recordings in your own time. With MTCM run live every month, you can join in on a future 30-day course at any time, and you have lifetime access to the materials.

The lessons get recorded. You can watch the replay later. Also, I repeat the 30 lessons every month. You’re welcome to repeat the course next month or to stop at any point and continue the following month.

Or you can schedule a 1:1 session if you’ve got more specific questions. 
   What if I already have Albion?
You still get the education certificate as soon as you enroll, which gives you access to educational discounts to other libraries or plugins that you may want to buy in the future. 
   Are the "1-on-1 private classes" with you the same thing as "weekly group live chats", or more like the "private lessons" offered at music schools? 
They are not the same. The 1-on-1s are twice a week and it's 1:1 time with Marc.

On top of the 1:1 private classes, we also have group classes. These are not "weekly". They are DAILY live lessons! :)
   What if I can't attend the 1-on-1 private lesson because the schedule doesn't work for me? 
For the 1on1, we send a poll to see what would be the best time. Based on the most voted time, we set the office hour that week. The next office hour can be at a different time.

Yes, there's a chance that some times, the office hour does not work for you, unfortunately... I try to accommodate everyone as much as I can but there are times that it's impossible to find an hour that works for everyone.

That being said, you can always ask your questions during the weekly Q&A or at the beginning of the daily classes.
   I don’t have formal training and I play by ear. Can I still take this course?
We’ve got students who started this course and didn’t read music and played by ear. Others who didn’t play keyboard… We start with the very basics. You can join this course even if you don’t read music and have learned by ear, are a hobby composer, a musician who wants to develop their skills, or someone who needs to update their skills or just feel more confident with orchestral composition.

This course is for action takers who are ready to put in the time to get results. You need to put yourself out there and get uncomfortable to grow (by getting coached and sharing your work), or you’ll keep doing more of the same!
   Who isn’t this course for?
If you like complaining, aren’t committed to learning to compose, aren’t willing to accept coaching, don’t want to share your work or support our community of composers, this course isn’t for you. 
   *How does the 30-day money-back guarantee work?
We’re so confident that this is the course that will make the difference for you that we’re giving you a full 30 days to go through the training, do the assignments, implement what you learn, and watch your skills begin to grow.
If you reach out within 30 days to show us that you’ve kept up with all the work, and for some reason still haven’t seen any progress, then we’ll be happy to return the investment.

*Conditions apply. Please read Terms and conditions.
   Am I ready for this?
Let me ask you… are YOU ready to take your composing skills to the next level? Because it will take commitment, learning, and growth. But it will be worth it.
   This looks like a bundle to me. Is this a bundle?
The craziest thing is happening. I’m receiving emails from students:
-”Hey, I’ve seen the new course. It says it costs $X.XXX and it includes all the six Cinematic Composing courses, but I already have a bunch of them. Can I have a discount?”
Alright…

Peter Moore- Gold Coast, Australia

For many of us (or at least me) it's one thing to 'enrol' in a course and it's a whole different thing seeing the whole thing through without getting sidetracked or distracted. Let's face it, no matter how great the course is, unless you're kept 'involved' and 'on track' things come up that take your energy away or if you're like me, you end up composing in styles that you're more comfortable with rather than doing the hard work you need to do to master the other styles. 

“I find MTCM ticks all the boxes. I love the fact that it's so live and real... worts and all. Its great at keeping me focused and moving forward and I feel a sense of family and camaraderie with the the group. Marc teaches with a complete absence of ego and you definitely feel he is there for the students. I can't recommend it highly enough.!”
