I would welcome all your feedback, I anticipate you will like the new changes, but some of you may have 'teething' problems. Our technical department will be ready to help you with any issues you may have, and of course I'm always available for any other questions.
I'm also very excited to let you know my new orchestration/arranging subject (which took more than six months to produce) will be uploaded in August, so if you have a full subscription you will see this additional subject pop up when you login. I'm looking forward to hearing your feedback on this subject as well.
I am extremely proud of this subject! It includes a ten track album for you to download and burn to cd, videos (with extremely high definition) of Logic files of the album tracks, the actual Logic files and also the Logic files exported as midi files so you can open them in your preferred software. There are also over forty graphics of sections of the scores with explanations and a dozen or so conductors' scores with musicians parts for you to print for an orchestra.
"I can see how much work you have done to achieve high quality video that is compressed for quick viewing online as it doesn’t take forever which can be a nuisance when in a hurry to get things set up in class time. You also seem to have identified many of the key areas in music that can be of value to the upcoming musician."

“A distinct advantage in the classroom, for me, is that fact that you present these 'sessions' in a nice bite size chunks so that the teacher can easily discuss immediately afterwards.
