I am hoping to get some feedback from the good folks here at NS about the lesson I posted. To my surprise I had a potential student tell me they found the lesson "too advanced" for them. Is that the way it strikes people here for the most part? My intention was to make it simple in the extreme so I was surprised by this - maybe I'm wrong though. I thought that making music out of C Maj and Dmin triads was a simple as it gets (although I admittedly extended those harmonies.) Even so I wanted to show how simple it is to create more sophisticated harmonies out of simple triads as well.
I must admit I have been puzzled by the lack of commentary here after well over a thousand views. It seems like there is a healthy interest here in composition with all the other good information available here. But I don't know what the percentage of people here are interested in a professional career in orchestral composition.
Any suggestions or opinions would be most welcome in what might be a more helpful way of presenting the material.
Also - would anybody be interested in hearing a completely different orchestration of the material? I've been thinking of doing that and that people would find it very interesting. But that's just it - I don't really know what anyone here thinks about the lesson and would genuinely like to know.
