1987, the Musical Scoring School offers students a four-year program,
enabling an efficient learning of all necessary techniques for the composer.
Our pedagogy, elaborated by Jean Robert, is the fastest possible.
Teaching is based on intensive practising of musical writing exercises.
Beside attending sessions (group lectures of one hour, twice a week),
regularly doing your homework is therefore absolutely necessary. Correcting
of exercises, in the form of a workshop, gives the teacher the opportunity
to support and guide each student efficently in their progressive mastering
of scoring techniques.
The step by step program of exercises enables any hard-working beginner
to successfully reach the end of the studies. Sessions are held from
October to June, in three quarters, corresponding to the French schools
calendar. The full cycle of studies lasts four years.
Another particular point : our teaching is entirely based on writing.
Students therefore will not use their listening skills to complete exercises.
Real inside listening, which cannot be separated from musical intelligence,
will simultaneously develop with scoring skills.
