Very good instructor. Writing music for an orchestra is a big challenge. He gave a very good introduction for how to take the first steps. This is a very interesting subject. Especially if your talented enough to write a score that is good enough to make the beautiful sounds an orchestra can make.

Course Overview

Olajide Paris

Olajide Paris

Nowadays, orchestral music recorded with MIDI in a DAW can sound fantastic, but there’s nothing like music played by real musicians. In this second instalment of the Orchestral Session series, music composer Olajide Paris covers the special preparation work needed to transform your MIDI score into data that a notation program can use.

In this course, Olajide Paris covers essential techniques and strategies to speed up your orchestration prep work. Topics such as when to use region-based vs. event-based quantization, how to deal with dedicated runs libraries so they correctly translate to the score, or how to consolidate MIDI parts are all covered. Olajide also discusses how to create individual parts from ensemble patches, what important housekeeping steps need to be done before exporting, why you should know about the alternative music XML format, and more... In the last section, you learn about the challenges and considerations when orchestrating for the scoring stage, where you learn to import MIDI prepared from a DAW into Sibelius and Finale, and you get a walkthrough of a completed orchestral score!

After watching this course by Olajide Paris, you’ll have a firm grasp of all the techniques needed to transform your composition into a clean MIDI file that can be used to create a full score.
