Orchestral Tools and Berklee College of Music launch free Virtual Orchestration Educational Series on YouTube

Orchestral Tools

Orchestral Tools have announced the launch of Virtual Orchestration, a new YouTube channel created in collaboration with Berklee College of Music dedicated to learning the art of composing with sampled orchestral instruments. The channel is open to all, with episodes aimed at both aspiring and experienced composers looking to expand their musical capabilities.

Hosted by composer Alex Lamy, Virtual Orchestration will explore every aspect of the compositional creative process. The wealth of knowledge being made available has been curated alongside the preeminent faculty of Berklee College of Music's Screen Scoring department, as well as some well-known special guest presenters from the professional scoring world. Each lesson is designed to be both inspiring and practical with a wealth of useful tips and tricks that can be quickly implemented into any composer's workflow. The first episodes of Season 1 are available now, and the channel will release a new episode every Sunday.

The screen scoring department is always exploring new ways to educate our students and expand the platform upon which music can be taught through new ideas and technologies. These are values that Orchestral Tools share with us and as such it's been a wonderful project to pool our collective expertise in creating a free learning resource for a wider audience.

Berklee College of Music Screen Scoring Chair, Sean McMahon.

Whether you're just starting out in composition or looking to learn some new tricks of the trade, Virtual Orchestration has something to offer. We're thrilled to open the doors to the next generation of composers by making this free resource available. And with the expertise of Berklee behind it, we're sure that this channel is going to inspire some incredible music.
