Orchestration 2: Compose Orchestral Music for Woodwinds

Part 2 of the Orchestration Series - Take Your Music to the Next Level with 78 New Woodwind Colors and Sounds

Created by Karleen Heong - Composer, Music Teacher, Programmer

Students: 1646, Price:  Paid

Have you mastered the Strings and want to take your Orchestral Writing to the next level?

Introducing the long awaited Part 2 of the Orchestration Series: Compose orchestral music for woodwinds.

This is the next natural step to learning the difficult art of orchestration.

The strings were tough due to the number of articulations. The woodwinds are tough to learn due to how many there are and how different each one sounds from the next. Not only that, but there is incredible variety when it comes to their registers too.

Did you know you could score an entire piece using a bunch of clarinets, each playing in a separate range? The reason is because there are very distinct registers for the clarinet, that you could view each one as an entirely new instrument altogether.

It's facts like these that make the woodwinds difficult to learn.

There's just so much variety, so much uniqueness, that it makes orchestration even more of a headache to learn.

There's the TOO MUCH INFORMATION problem.

That's where this course comes in.

It's designed to be simple, giving you just the right amount of information. We don't just gloss over things like an overview - that would be betraying the art for what it is. But, we go into clear detail, with in depth examples and explanations, like a laser focusing in on all the important bits.

You'll walk away knowing a ton about the woodwinds, much more than just the basic information.

You'll have new techniques and new ways of exploring with the woodwind instruments.

And you would have witnessed a lot of real life examples from our analyses and audio demonstrations of each instrument.

By the end, you'll not only have gathered the knowledge about the instruments, but the MINDSET.

You'll know how to pick apart an orchestral score for yourself and analyze what's going on.

You'll know how the melodies and different lines are shifting from each woodwind instrument into various registers and why the composer chose to do that.

And you'll essentially become a woodwind-sound potions master. Mixing and blending different sounds will be a new skill you pick up.

The string family sounds similar all throughout the whole family. The woodwind family is entirely different all throughout the various families and sub families.

This will level up your orchestration skills way above the first part of the Orchestration series, and you'll view orchestration in an entirely different light after this.

The possibilities for creation and orchestral sound blending are endless.

If you're not using the woodwinds, you're greatly missing out. Add some spice and flavor to your strings, or even to the rest of your modern orchestral score if that's what rocks your boat. Or else, welcome to Level 2 of Orchestration.

Let's kick it with almost a hundred new sounds from the Woodwind Family!

Hello and welcome Beginner Saxophonists !

 

My name is Matthew and I would like to teach you How To Play The Sax.

 

You may be a Primary or Elementary School student (or parent), you may be a junior or senior High School student (or parent), you may be at University or College, or perhaps you are an adult who has always wanted to play the saxophone.

 

If you are brand new to the saxophone, then I can help you learn how to play the sax.

 

Here at How To Play The Sax we cater for all beginner saxophone players – ranging in age from about 10 to 110 years old.  It is NEVER too late to learn how to play saxophone :-)   

Learn saxophone fast !  Play the music that YOU want to play !

You can use these online beginner saxophone lessons as a stand-alone system to learn how to play the sax.  Or, you can use them to supplement and as an addition to the sax lessons you might be having privately or at school.  Either way, these beginner sax lessons will jump start and turbo charge your playing.

 

As part of our beginner saxophone lesson journey together we will be playing a lot by ear.  That means that we will use our ears to hear, our eyes to watch and our brains to translate it all into our fingers and mouths on our saxophones.

By listening and playing together you will be making music together in no time !

 

Reading music is important, but actually playing music is important too.  Initially we will simply concentrate on playing.

 

And playing music is fun !  If you don’t enjoy it, then perhaps you shouldn’t be doing it…. At least that is my opinion.....

Here at How To Play The Sax we will be having fun.  We will take some simple and traditional songs, learn them first, then play around with them.  We’ll jazz them up, slow them down, rock them out and change them completely.

 

As well as the video lessons, we have backing tracks as MP3 files that you can download too.  Play them on your computer, your phone, your tablet, your stereo system and play your sax along with them.

 

There are also PDF files to download (and print out if you wish) to help make learning the saxophone easier for you.

Watch the lessons once, or twice, or ten times, or make them a part of your daily practice routine.

 

Online saxophone lessons are a great way to learn how to play the sax, because you can download the videos, look on the screen or print out the materials and access them as often as you like, when and where it suits you.

 

So, who am I and why should you let me help you learn how to play the sax ?

 

My name is Matthew and I have been playing the saxophone for more than 33 years.  I have played in rock bands, jazz bands, big bands, concert bands, musical theatre groups, orchestras and ensembles.  I have played big gigs and small gigs, bars, pubs, clubs, and stadiums.  I have played with famous people and people you and I have never heard of.  I have recorded and been involved with CDs that have sold all over the world across all styles of music.  I have taught students who are young and not so young.  I enjoy playing my sax by myself or with others.  I am equally at home on my Tenor sax as I am on my Alto sax or my Soprano sax.  My theory is that I will play with anyone, at any time, in any style !  I have enjoyed and continue to enjoy it all.  

Music, and playing music is my passion – and I want to pass this passion on to you.

 

Playing the saxophone can be easy, with the right instructions and teaching.

 

Whether you want to be the next Maceo Parker, John Coultrane, Clarence Clemons, Kenny G, Candy Dulfer, Zoot from the Muppets, or simply just want to learn how to play the saxophone, then you have come to the right place !   

Let me show you How To Play The Sax !

|| ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR ||

Characterized by a virtuosic technique and a warm, rich, velvet tone, Brian Bowman's playing has thrilled audiences for more than a quarter of a century. His superb musicianship and dedication to fine brass playing have made him one of the foremost euphonium soloists in the world today. His history of euphonium firsts is impressive:

  • First euphonium concert tour of Japan

  • First euphonium master class at the Paris Conservatory Superior of Music, France
  • Master teacher at the first Deutsche Tubaforum workshop to include the euphonium, tenor hornand baritone, Hammelburg, Germany, 1991

Dr. Brian L. Bowman enjoys a distinguished career as a soloist, clinician, recording artist, educator and administrator. Dr. Bowman has held the principal euphonium position, in addition to being a featured soloist, in each of the bands he has been associated with: The University of Michagan Symphony Band, The United States Navy Band, The United States Bicentennial Band, The United States Air Force Band and The River City Brass Band in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

He is in demand as a guest soloist with high school, university, municipal and professional ensembles. He has performed as a soloist in all 50 states, Canada, Mexico, The Virgin Islands, Norway, Finland, Germany, Belgium, Holland, Hungary, Great Britain, France, Italy, Switzerland, Australia, Japan, Tonga Taiwan, Thailand and the Peoples Republic of China. He has appeared as tenor tubist with the New York Philharmonic, the National Symphony, the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, the Colorado Symphony, the San Francisco Symphony, Oklahoma City Philharmonic, the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, the Fort Worth Symphony, and the Orchestra Symphonica of Xlapa, Mexico. He has performed concertos with the Lexington Kentucky Symphony, the Sapporo, JapanSymphony Orchestra, the North Carolina Symphony and the Madison Wisconsin Symphony Orchestra.

In addition to his live performances, Dr. Bowman can be heard on over 35 service band recordings and his six solo albums. He has appeared as featured soloist on Iowa Public Television with the Karl King Fort Dodge Municipal band and performed with the New Sousa Band in the Wolftrap PBS television special.

Perhaps it is his dedication to outstanding musical performance that makes him such an inspiring clinician and educator. Currently Regents Professor of Music (Euphonium) in the College of Music at The University of North Texas, Dr. Bowman has also served on the music faculty of eight other universities. His students occupy prominent positions in professional organizations worldwide. He is the author of Practical Hints for Playing the Euphonium/Baritone Hornand he frequently publishes articles in professional journals. 

His edition of the Arban Complete Method is the only complete bass clef edition of this famous brass method. His work as a clinician and soloist at such conferences as the Mid-West International Band Orchestra Clinic, The British Association of Symphonic Bands Wind Ensembles and many national and international brass symposia have won him international recognition. In 1989 he was awarded the British Magazines EUPHONIUM PLAYER OF THE YEAR, and in 1995 was given the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Tubists Universal Brotherhood Association. He is the only living euphoniumist to be included in the book Twentieth-Century Brass Soloists by Michael Meckna.

As an authority in the field of euphonium performance, Brian Bowman has been asked to serve as adjudicator of many national and international euphonium competitions over the past thirty years. He has been a member of competition juries for international professional music competitions in the United States, France and Japan. He was the president of the TubaManiaeuphonium solo competition in Australia in December 1999. In 1994, an annual competition in Sapporo, Hokkaido, Japan, was named the Brian L. Bowman Euphonium Solo Competition in his honor.

Brian Bowman is a member of the Symphonia Ensemble, a Tuba/Euphonium ensemble of professional players and teachers, which has performed throughout the United States and in Europe and recorded three compact discs with that group. He is the euphonium member of the Summit Brass Ensemble, composed of the leading soloists, chamber musicians and orchestral players in the country. He is a regular artist faculty member of the Rafael Mndez Brass Institute each summer. He has been the euphonium artist faculty member at the International Tuba-Euphonium Summer Workshopat the University of Oklahoma and the International Euphonium Institute in Atlanta, Georgia.

Brian Bowman has contributed significantly to the field of euphonium instrument design and was instrumental in the development and success of the Willson euphonium, produced by the Willson Musical Instrument Company in Flums, Switzerland and distributed by Getzen. He has also been a frequent consultant for other musical instrument companies and has designed a special line of Brian Bowman euphonium mouthpieces distributed by DEG Music Products.

Dr. Bowman has contributed significantly to the body of literature available for euphonium performers today. Not only have composers written new works at Bowmans specific request, but also many compositions have resulted merely from the composer being acquainted with Bowman and having heard his performance capabilities. Of seven new euphonium works commissioned by the Tubists Universal Brotherhood Association since its inception in 1974, Bowman has premiered four. A major thrust of Bowmans career has been working to generate quality new compositions for his beloved instrument.

Many of Dr. Bowmans accomplishments and contributions have been documented in a doctoral dissertation, The Life and Career Contributions of Brian L. Bowman through 1991, written by Sharon Elise Huff at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, 1994. In 2010, Dr.Bowman received The Clifford Bevan Award for Meritorious Work in Low Brass Scholarship, at the International Tuba Euphonium Conference.

Dr. Bowman believes that music is a most effective art form when used to communicate. To hear him or study with him is to know he is a powerful communicator and a master of that art form. Dr. Bowmans current and future projects include: performing solo/clinic/teaching tours throughout the world; creating CD recordings of all levels of literature for euphonium; commissioning and inspiring composers to write for the euphonium; and working to create performance, teaching and research opportunities for future generations of euphoniumists.

Daniel is brilliant, his lessons are well organised and he delivers them with real enthusiasm and energy. Molly has developed and grown under his instruction. Nothing is too much and he encourages her all the way. Molly loves her lessons so much that she has now decided to follow a career in music and has recently been accepted at Leeds College of Music. We have no doubt that this would not have been possible without Daniel, and as parents we are extremely grateful that our daughter has this opportunity. And whatever the future holds for Molly, we know that Daniel will continue his support on her journey.

Thank you Daniel.”

Hi Dan, 

Just a quick note to say how much I look forward to my lesson each week. At my age, a teacher with the patience of a saint is absolutely essential, and that is exactly what we get with you. Your approach to teaching is very refreshing and I cant believe how quickly I've progressed since I started my lessons. I doubt I will ever be 'Top Billing' at Johnny Dankworths jazz club but that was never my intention, but to be able to knock out a few recognizable tunes for my own entertainment was. It seems now the odd concert is not beyond possibility thanks to your encouragement. It's a pleasure to spend time learning to play such a cool instrument from such an accomplished musician, and I cannot recommend you highly enough.  "

Paul T

Like Molly and Paul, I look forward to playing a part in your Saxophone development. Let's get started.

To your Saxophone Success!

Simon Currie has toured the world with the musical giants, and is currently the saxophonist with Paul Jones and The Manfreds.  He is also a very experienced sax teacher who is able to be very patient and methodical, introducing each lecture and demonstrating to you the next group of phrases and scales.

        All the  audio backing tracks are written and recorded by me or my team to promote the work and the artist and to facilitate students who want to learn more about their music.
