    Hi,

    I'm considering buying a couple of Mike Verta's courses, but I can't tell if they are videos, or just text , or both as far as the format of the course is concerned ?

    Some feedback on this would be helpful.

    Thanks,
    Muziksculp

    Videos - mostly 3-5 hours. No text - how did you come up with that?

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Well, I wasn't sure of the format of his course, since I couldn't find any info. about that on his site.

    In some of the classes Mike provides scores. I doubt Mike will write a text book :) ...but you never know. Mike has lots of free classes on youtube so I suggest you check those out first to see the format and what to expect.

    The live Brass Class is really particularly outstanding and if you're interested in brass writing at all, I would highly recommend that one for starters (though its not typical as the others do have live players).
    Here's a little promo of the class:

    The live symphonic brass class is really outstanding. And you get scores and recording for each of the examples, in addition to the video. I loved it!

    Thanks for the recommendation. I will consider in the near future.

    Right now I'm more interested in his Structure, and Counterpoint courses.

    Counterpoint is great. Very practical, with direct application of the advices on the DAW. Don't know about Structure (would gladly hear more about it).
