This is an appealing, comprehensive multi-level programme which sits well with current learning objectives - and affordable also.

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 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.

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.
