Who should take this course?
This course is designed for adult choral enthusiasts and upper level choral students. It’s recommended to have some choral experience and a basic knowledge of key signatures, note names, time signatures, and rhythms. This is not a music theory course (there are plenty of free online theory tutorials.) But we will cover simple strategies for finding texts, composing specifically for the human voice, creating compelling melodies, options for chord progressions, basic part-writing, voice leading, accompaniments, editing, publishing, and more!
Do I need to play piano to compose choral music?
No. Playing piano certainly helps, but I will walk you through the process to assist non-pianists as well!
When does the course start and finish?
Whenever you want! It is a completely self-paced online course - you decide when you start and when you finish.
How long do I have access to the course?
One year. After enrolling, you have 12 months to access this course across any and all devices you own.
How can I use this course with my choral classroom?

You can use this course in person by projecting course videos in class and printing the PDF guided notes, charts, and graphics.
Do I need to purchase this course for each individual student in my choir?
Only one purchase needed per teacher. As a teacher, you can share this content with all your students in class or through synchronous online instruction.
