REQ: Alexander Publishing Writing For Strings Course: Lite Edition
To start, you get 28 PDF Lessons (about 140 pages) plus 19 supporting Video Lectures split into 33 multi-part videos (about 6.98 hours). You also get links to selected YouTube videos of the pieces we'll be studying so you can see the string bowings in action. You’ll learn the professional’s top secret for writing success - score analysis and how to apply what you’ve learned to your own writing.
Because good string writing doesn’t just happen, you get the 4-color String Positions PDF Booklet so you can work out just how playable your parts are.
You also get 19 PDF scores of public domain classical works to study, approximately 470 pages.
And finally, so you can put your new scoring skills to the test, you get a series of original 12-14 bar test scores for you to select the bowings, mark the legato bowings, and then do a MIDI mock-up that you record on your system based on the libraries you have.
All these tools pull together to help you learn how to write for “live” string players and begin learning how to make sampled strings sound live.
