Orchestration 2

I registered for Orchestration 2 a couple of days ago, using scholarship funds to pay for it (a very nice option).

Everyone who’s taken the course says it’s about double the work of Orchestration 1–and that it’s the best course they’ve ever taken. Considering that Benjamin Newhouse’s Orchestration 1 course was classified the Best Online Course of 2008, that’s saying quite a lot. He’s a fabulous teacher, there’s no question about that. My concern is whether I’m going to be able to find enough hours to do it justice. I admit I’m anxious about it. At the same time, I’m looking forward to building a more solid orchestration foundation to support my compositions going forward.  I’ve got until January 13 to breathe…and then it’s going to be “heads down” until April.

Now, if I could only figure out how to work faster….
