Ready to move your composition skills to the next level?  Want to work on longer and more diverse development? 

In SBA's  Composition Course Level 2 participants will again work with professional composer Paul Suchan to expand their comfort in using melody, harmony, form, accompaniment, texture, and orchestration to create a more detailed composition for a small wind ensemble.

Participants will: 

  • Cover all of the same content as in Level 1 ... but in greater depth and detail
  • Further increase the use of range, timbre, and percussive colours to enhance the variety and depth of compositions.
  • Develop compositions of greater length
  • Gain greater comfort with using free online music notation software

The program will be delivered entirely online with TWO virtual classes/sessions per week.  Online sessions will run on MONDAYS & THURSDAYS from 10:30 - 11:30 am over 3 weeks beginning on August 3 (Note - Special start date due to Long weekend).

Instruction will provide practical application, composer feedback on participant compositions, and development of a small band ensemble composition as part of the program.  If possible, SBA will arrange for select compositions to be played/recorded by experienced musicians... allowing budding composers to hear their work performed.

Prerequisite Knowledge for the course:


·  Have completed SBA's Composition Course - Level 1


·  Have completed the SBA's Intro to Music Theory course or comparable theory course
