Online lessons are invaluable to students that have not yet entered college, those that have recently graduated, or professional composers that need a second opinion on their works. It is often hard to find a qualified composer, especially if you are limiting your search to local instructors only. Taking music composition lessons online will give the student a competitive edge and personalized attention.

Students are encouraged to explore their own, personal style of writing. When a student is enrolled in lessons, they have the option to receive training in the fundamentals of music composition: Music Theory, Counterpoint, Instrumentation, Orchestration, and Form and Analysis. In addition, they will also receive feedback that is provided at the schedule agreed upon when purchasing lessons.
How Lessons Work

Perhaps one of the most commonly asked questions from students is how, precisely, do online lessons work. Provided the student has applied and been accepted into the studio, lessons proceed in a fairly systematic way.

* Once an assignment has been submitted, students will receive a PDF booklet that includes a response to their uploaded assignment within 24 hours of the due date and time.

* Students will then be given a new assignment and expected to complete the assignment by the next due date.

* Courses will be available to students to help them solidify their foundation and improve their technique. These courses are mostly self-guided, with the exception of counterpoint, orchestration, and instrumentation, and can be done at the students leisure.

Our instructor has created literally thousands of pages of individualized feedback and has been teaching for over 15 years. As a result, he is qualified to teach students The Craft of Music Composition.

  • None that I can think of. His lessons more than make up for the need for face to face time.

I've been a student of Kevin Ure's for over a year now. His attention to detail, quick response to questions, knowledge, and caring manner make for a very effective course of study for composers.

A typical lesson seems to include the submission of an original work, or an assignment and then a detailed set of feedback in response. The feedback is provided through a pdf that is easy to print, export to iPad or take with you even on an iphone. He includes illustrations and screen shots of your music so that you can easily see what you need to work on.

He also offers courses. So far I have taken Counterpoint and a Music Theory course. Both of these courses have helped me to immensely improve my skills. I know his studio is competitive and it can be hard to get in, but it is a simple online application and well worth the time spent.

When I started I was a beginner so I know that he does take a certain amount of beginning students. If you are serious about learning to compose you need to visit his website!
