Arranging and Orchestration Preview The prerequisite to Arranging and Orchestration is Rhythm Engineering. In the Arranging section, you will learn Schillinger’s strata harmony. This will include the composition of multiple strata parts, instrumental strata and forms of accompanied melody. In Orchestration, you will learn Schillinger’s traditional method of orchestration, his nomenclature, notation and instrumental combinations. […]
Harmonic Engineering Preview, Part Two This course requires a preliminary understanding of traditional music theory, scales, notation and harmony Harmonic Engineering: Part 2 Rhythm Engineering and Pitch Scales are prerequisites to the Harmonic Engineering courses Part One and Part Two. You will learn the scientific system of harmony that you will be able to use […]
Harmonic Engineering Preview. Part One The prerequisite to Harmonic Engineering is Rhythm Engineering In Harmonic Engineering, you will learn Schillinger’s special theory of harmony, which includes three types of harmonization. Type one: The diatonic system and the symmetric system. Type two: The diatonic system of harmonization. Type three: the symmetric system of harmonization. You will […]
Pitch Scales Preview The prerequisite to Pitch Scales is Rhythm Engineering In Pitch Scales, you will learn Schillinger’s four groups: Diatonic in one octave, Diatonic more than one octave, Symmetric in one octave, Symmetric in more than one octave. You will learn how to harmonize symmetric scales, geometrical projections, geometrical inversions, geometrical expansions. At the […]
In the Ultimate Rhythm Course, you will acquire the tools to create all possible rhythms for every aspect of music composition, rhythm, harmony, counterpoint and melody.
The Logic of Music makes sense of all areas of composition. Reducing elements to the lowest common denominator, giving you all the tools you need to help you discover your own unique style and give you an endless supply of ideas.
Theory of Composition Preview The Practical Schillinger Courses operate as building blocks Prerequisite to Style Engineering are: Rhythm Engineering The Theory of Composition will be the last course in Practical Schillinger series. We will tap into all of your previous knowledge of the Schillinger System using the entire system, Schillinger’s theories and a variety of major components as building blocks […]
Pitch Scales Preview The prerequisite to Pitch Scales is Rhythm Engineering. In Pitch Scales, you will learn Schillinger’s four groups: Diatonic in one octave, Diatonic more than one octave, Symmetric in one octave, Symmetric in more than one octave. You will learn how to harmonize symmetric scales, geometrical projections, geometrical inversions, geometrical expansions. At the Practical […]
In this introduction to the system, we’ll examine permutation, a simple technique that offers the musician endless options. You can learn to apply permutation techniques in your compositions without having to learn the entire Schillinger System. These techniques are the most important aspects of Schillinger’s system of composition with regards to generating material and overcoming writer’s block.
Rhythm Engineering Rhythm Engineering is the foundation of the Schillinger System. Joseph Schillinger believed that in order to create an original piece of art the artist (engineer) must construct it through principles and procedures leaving nothing to chance. In Rhythm Engineering we teach the principles of Schillinger’s Theory of Rhythm. The Schillinger System of Musical […]
