Hello, I'm looking for resources for composers and orchestrators, con you help me?

Hi, I'm looking for online resources to study composition and orchestration.

Even though I already studied a lot, I never went to music school so I can't really know if there are holes in my knowledge bag, thus anything from basic stuff up is welcome.

    Trust me - if you have never had a thorough musical education, then they ARE holes - HUGE ONES - that will need to fill with fine education. NO - you cannot learn this from a book or website. Even if you read and memorized both the Berlioz AND Rimski-Korsakov books, that does not mean you know how to DO it. Then there is all the Music Theory you would need . . . . Of course, if all you intend to do is write trash for Katie Perry, you would not need all of the above - but the people who DO at least clean up the trash she says she writes herself (cough . . .). DO have great educations and the ability to apply it

    So - get into a fine music conservatory, graduate, get a few more degrees and years of experience - and let us know how you are doing.

      Not complain - but you are STUCK until you get real live instruction to apply what you have llearned. If you compose, use a top program like Dorico, Sibelius, even Finale. Go online to their user groups and submit your works for feedback. You might be isolated, but you are not alone.

    Hi. If you can enter the college music library and look through books, that will be great.

      You have my sympathies. Or you can seek help from a Masters degree in Music teacher for help and resources.
