The Instant Composer: Counterpoint by Fux Home Study Course - Download
For the first time, we're releasing our video and supplemental PDFs so you can have this advanced study option to do at your own pace. You get all fourteen video lessons with PDF supplemental training containing your homework assignments. These fourteen video lessons and material in the book are roughly the equivalent of a semester's worth of work in college, again, that you do at your own pace.
Please note: this is NOT an academic theoretical approach. Initially, you'll do all your work with just the Dorian mode. From there, all the remaining modes are open to you.
Please note: I do NOT teach RULES! I teach PRINCIPLES that you can apply to ANY style of music. Once you've learned to apply these principles, you then have the skill to write music on demand - in as many different music styles you know: classical, jazz, Rap, you name it!
That's why this is a practical course for songwriters, arrangers, and composers who want to:
