    Smile OT: Ken-P's short guide to orchestration (and book?)

    Dear Forum Users

    I would like to thank those who have contacted me regarding my orchestral compositions and orchestration techniques. I created a page to share some of my knowledge. Hope this will help you.

    Ken-P, this is great!! It looks to be very helpful. When you do complete writing a full book, I will surely buy it. Many thanks for posting this!

    Great ideas, ken-P and well documented. I think
    your book, when it is published will do a lot for the
    composition student if you maintain your desire to
    teach the "spoon-fed" method. That way, no-one
    gets left behind and all can see EVERYTHING that
    is talked about and performed.

    Excellent beginning.

    good job Ken!

    sounds like that melody came from one of the harmonies of Kyria Eleison

    Nice work!

    Great idea, Ken-P! For me, it is both musically and technicaly interesting to hear the composition development with your examples. However, for real beginners, you may consider simplier start (mean, the main melody-harmony example). By the way, it reminds me on my stay at an American University, where conducting lessons started with "Rite of Spring" Anyway, great idea and very good job!

    I will buy your book!

    I just want to say I really really loved your piece, it's harmonies and the melody.

    I've been thinking very much about this kind of approach to composition, what you are writing about and it's awesome, that someone writes about it. At least all my teachers seem to be very anti-melodical. They say I shouldn't have a melody and then orchestrate it, but instead take max. 3-note-melody and then build it up within the song. I understand them, but I like telling stories, like you do.

    Very cooL!!!

    Looks good, Ken!

    It looks like the kind of book I've been looking for for awhile. Especially with all the extra things that you say you want to cover.
