Dear friends and fellow musicians:
We live in the greatest time ever to record orchestra!
You live your dream and you decide to record your music with a wonderful orchestra.
The budget is limited and you have decided to write the score yourself. Finally the recording day has come and you are looking forward to hear the first takes.
The session start is quite bumpy... it takes a while to sort out all the musicians questions - more than you were expecting. Then they get to understand your music and perform good, but you have lost couple minutes here and there. Some time later the session ends. It feels much to soon.
You would have loved to have 1-2 takes more, if there would have been time... The recordings went somewhat okay, but you are asking yourself what could have been improved to have a smooth, relaxed session with exactly those more takes, you thought really could have made the big difference in the end.
Of course no session is perfect and no session consists of only perfect one-takers.
But so many things can be done to give you a much better experience - from beginning on!
That's why I created Orchestral Notation - Sibelius
▻ Let me show you a structured approach on preparing orchestral music,
so that you are happy with your recordings afterwards.
P.S. This includes everything to make your workflow in Sibelius much more efficient & fun...
and your recordings much more relaxed & enjoyable!

"Hi Dave, I love this course. The best one I've done in regard to scoring. I've learned a lot. Have saved my first Sibelius template score now. Took lots of notes, and went through the videos more than once. I have learned so much! Have more confidence now in getting my piano concerto score ready, and I'm feeling I can do more orchestral writing than before. best, Steve🙂🙂🙂🙂"

"I've known David for over a decade now and he has done the score preperation for a lot of my music, always with great care and dedication. His Orchestral Notation - Sibelius course is not only incredibly well structured and teaches you all important steps to great score preparation, but it also shows you how to get most out of Sibelius with the help of additional tools like Stream Deck or NotePerformer. I highly recommend David's course for every composer who wants to prepare professional scores and parts for their live recordings."

"Just a couple of months ago, I was discussing live orchestral recordings with my non-musical friend and told him that it will probably take years until I learn how I can get one of my MIDI mockups notated and recorded. And now, thanks to David’s course, I am incredibly proud and happy to "suddenly" have my first complete score finalized and ready for recording.
It’s amazing to watch David’s two compositions transform from a rough MIDI mockup to an emotionally impactful, expressive and musical recording played by a real orchestra. I can’t help but think "Wow, THIS is how he created the orchestration and session scores for those AAA video game titles!"
"David’s Orchestral Notation – Sibelius course prepares you for final orchestral recordings. I’ve gone through it thoroughly, created my template, learned an efficient and effective way of working and got tons of tips and work processes (Sibelius plugins, Stream Deck, Note Performer, etc). As well I have enjoyed the real-life examples of MIDI to SCORE to RECORDINGS. I highly recommend this course!"
