The Contemporary Music Course is a collection of short, easy to follow video lessons developed over several years by a professional composer.

It moves through learning tried-and-true music structures and on to composing and arranging.

Designed for independent students and music teachers who want a resource for their students to use at school or at home, using a media with which they are comfortable. Even students with literacy problems can now study music.

The course remains open to all but subscriptions for teachers will need to be renewed in January 2022 by using the ‘For Educators’ option below. 

Starting with 'The Language of Music', the course moves through 'Chords and Harmony' to 'Orchestral Harmony', 'Part Writing’ and more.

The biggest step forward I ever took as a musician was a result of an evening course I attended run by Clive Cockburn. It wasn't that I didn't know any of the music theory he taught - but more that he changed my perception and taught me to understand and use that knowledge much more productively - and my song writing and arranging abilities were hugely enhanced as a result.
