As someone with a lot of training in music, I came to the course looking to extend my technique as a composer and find a way to integrate all the various approaches to composing music that I learned over the years. I don't officially represent the course as Craig does. I will say it's been worth every penny. Both of the teachers I've studied with have been marvelous. None of my existing knowledge was lost although I did become aware how convoluted and inefficient some of it was for composing. Since starting the course, I've had more orchestra performances and commissions than before and I compose faster.
