I wish they had some kind of cliff notes for learning about orchestration. I've learned that the best way TO learn is by doing, I just can't think of an efficient enough way to absorb everything from the Rimsky-Korsakov book on orchestration. It sucks because I've been getting so many good ideas lately but, I can't orchestrate or arrange. Somebody pleeeeeeeeease point me in the right direction. Please. I also have the Cecil Forsyth book and there's no way I can think of an approach to independently studying from that work. Help me please.... btw, I realize I'm not alone in this predicament.
