Orchestration Reloaded

Writing & Arranging For Strings

Have you ever been staring at a piano sketch feeling stuck or overwhelmed when arranging it into an orchestral statement? 

Maybe you find yourself doing the same predictable string arrangements over and over, and you listen to the great masters wishing you could replicate their intricate orchestral textures. 

Strings are the bread and butter of orchestral writing, but with only 5 voices to write for – how do you get the most out of them, creating grandiose statements, flourishing textures and more?

“Orchestration Reloaded: Writing & Arranging For Strings” tackles these issues head on. 

In this first course in the series, the talented Anže Rozman teaches his “MEHARYTE” method, with over 9 hours of content showing you a simple, step by step framework to turn your ideas into beautiful string passages of any complexity.

You will learn how to craft everything from lush chordal support, to moving harmonies, arpeggios and melodic fillers, rhyhtmic support and advanced interlocked textures, and much more. You will learn about the instruments, writing idiomatic lines, and making each instrument shine.

At the end, you’ll have an easy-to-follow framework and a solid understanding of the orchestral ensemble, rendering you able to craft any orchestration you can think of either in your DAW or with notation

What Our Students Say

Thank you so much for allowing me to beta test the course! Overall it has been absolutely brilliant!

There’s a wealth of content and detail in it and your teaching style is perfect - you always pace yourself, explain elements then demonstrate them as clear as anyone could ask.

This is the first time I’ve delved into the topic of Orchestration, as I’m still solidifying my basic theory knowledge. But you made sure that every step was crystal clear before moving onward – even the complex techniques and terminology, so MASSIVE thank you for that!

In particular, the lectures on Texture – what it is, how it’s utilised, was SO beneficial for me! I’ve never tried to incorporate texture because I had no idea what it was – or how to implement it. Alongside the lecture on The String Instruments family – that was super in depth and you covered literally everything I could’ve asked for.

There’s so much that applies to people wanting to purely study orchestration, but also to digital/modern composers too - some of it really invaluable. It’s not a beginner’s course, but even the more complex aspects you explain brilliantly and in a way that makes sense straight off the bat (which not everyone can do - so that’s really something), so people in all areas of their journey will get a huge amount of worth out the course.

  • Crucial chord structure and knowledge of the overtones

Module 2:
Mastering The MEHARYTE Method

In the second module of the course, we will get into the practical aspect of looking at different ways to utilize the MEHARYTE method to craft arrangements of different complexities, looking at a variety of applications and techniques you can implement straight away. 

We cover topics such as:

FAQ

I’m a pretty good composer already, will this course teach me anything new?

You bet ya! Anze has developed his own methods, workflows and techniques that anyone between total beginners to professional composers would benefit greatly from. The MeHaRyTe method and the deep understanding for string writing Anze provides is a valuable resource to any composer, regardless of skill level.

Together with Evenant tutors, we monitor the private student group and make sure to see to it that everyone is on track and give pointers along the way. It’s also a community effort so students can support each other.

Our in-depth, personal feedbacks and guidance are focused on 1-on-1 private students, so be sure to stay tuned on openings for that.

This course requires a certain level of fundamental understanding of composition to get the most value from it. You should be confident in using your virtual instruments to create basic compositions, and know your way around your DAW. However, you don’t need to be a professional orchestrator, or have much orchestration experience. That’s what this course is gonna teach you! 
We would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with the course, contact us in the first 21 days and we will give you a full refund – no questions asked.

We want to get you to reach your ultimate goals, and help you become the very best creator you can be.

There will eventually be openings where we offer a 1-on-1 private tutoring through video calls, emails, and more. You’ll get personal feedback and guidance from us and other instructors themselves in a private, and focused setting that revolves around you and your goals.

As you go through the main course curriculum, you will be sending in your assignments, questions and artworks privately to your instructor every week and receiving personal feedback and industry insights.

Stay tuned on the platform to learn more about how you can get private tutoring as soon as spots open!

This course goes incredibly in depth on both the MeHaRyTe method and the string ensemble and its instruments, and focuses on helping you perfect your string writing first and foremost. The reason for this is that the string instruments are the core of the orchestra, the bread and butter of cinematic writing. 

We want to help you get incredibly confident in your string writing, so that you choose to use brass and winds out of CHOICE, and not a necessity (because your chords sound thin in only strings, textures are bland etc). 

That being said, there are over 2 hours of content in Module 4 that shows the basics of how to actually implement brass and woodwinds into your orchestrations. However, we are working on full courses that go just as in depth into brass and winds, as we have gone into strings in this course. 

All students of this course will get a reasonable upgrade option to all future instalments.
