About This Course

The aim of this course is to help composers arrange more fluently at the piano by focusing on practicing the fundamental patterns of arrangement. By taking this course, you will enhance your composing and arranging skills, as well as becoming a better piano player.

When you have this skill and knowledge of arranging patterns under your belt, you can:

  • Start combining and manipulating them in many different ways
  • You start hearing these patterns everywhere, which shows you music isn’t as hard as you thought
  • You can deconstruct your favorite music and emulate it with ease
  • You can develop musical ideas with ease and finally start finishing that pile of sketches that you have been building up

My name’s Jack Vaughan. I’m a composer and online educator and founder of Lean Musician. My courses have been taken by thousands of students in nearly 100 countries and my main thing is helping musicians write and practice music more effectively.

This is not a beginners course. This course follows on from my previous course, Music Composition at the Piano. The aim of that course was to give beginner musicians an amazing foundation in music theory and composition – or to give intermediate musicians a catchup on all the things they often miss. If you haven’t taken that course, or don’t feel totally confident with your level of music theory as it currently stands – then check it out before taking this one.

Are there prerequisites to this course?

  • Should have completed my course, Music Composition With The Piano

Who this course is for:

  • Intermediate composers, producers and songwriters
