Music Composition & Notation

In a multitude of styles, we proudly offer lessons in Music Composition & Notation that are premier, comprehensive, and practical.  It is our experience that an individual’s interest in writing music should be :

1) matured through in-person tuition by an instructor with diverse and extraordinary experience,
2) grounded in a broad-ranging survey of music history, theory, and technique, and
3) enlivened by the live performance and recording of their completed works.

By studying with us you will receive exactly that experience, and thrill as your music-writing blooms into maturity and with the highest form!
