Great Course ! Just what I needed! I am originally a guitar player performed and recorded with bands. As an instrumentalist I always favored the fun of live performances and studio recordings so in my whole life I refused to look into the side of the Digital Audio/Computer based music production cause I had friends or professionals who took care of that for me, so sadly now I have a limited knowledge and understanding of the professional home studio setup, its essential workflows, using its hardware and Virtual Instruments to their fullest potential. The first time I saw the introduction on this Course I was amazed of Leandro’s professionalism, the realism and how his compositions sounded. From the outline of the Course it seemed that it builds from the ground up to a professional level that is essential to be an effective composer with all the necessary skills and tools that you have to have if you are serious about your craft. I love the Course so far, very detailed. Leandro is very patient and his knowledge of his art and his humanness is present throughout the lessons. I am looking forward to the upcoming lessons to learn and master the excellent scoring tools that we have available for us these days to express our creative ideas and a piece of our selves through the amazing language of Music. Highly recommend Course!
😀🎶 Best wishes to you all.

Tools for the Modern Composer. Great course! There is a lot of new technologies that all modern composers must be aware of, the tools of the trade are changing. You need to know how to use these tools as you continue to develop your craft. I have already implemented a couple of set up tips, and workflow strategies and I am looking forward to the next section on templates.
A complete guide to the world of Mockups! I think every modern composer should take this course. Leandro calmly guides us through all the steps involving MIDI, library, equipment and how to perform with them. There is no clickbait, he will go through EVERY instrument in his template and explain how everything works. He will teach you how to create a comprehensive template and how to organize it. I’d recommend this course to both beginners and experienced composers. To beginners because Leandro’s explanations are clear and easy to understand, and at the same time transmits us security in what we are doing. To the experienced because he will show some advanced tricks that most of us doesn’t use, like using synthesizers to emulate woodwinds in certain passages to achieve REALISM.
Leandro Gardini and his excellent course: a unique opportunity for musical growth with a great master of musical composition! Leandro Gardini is one of the greatest composers of his generation, have total mastery of the art of composition. For me, it is an honor and privilege to be your student! I'm excited about his new course, where he demonstrates his technical and aesthetic thinking, contributing a lot to the learning of musicians who really want to reach a level of excellence! Thank you, Master!
A must-see course. This course is fabulous. No matter if you are a beginner or if you have strong knowledge. The instructor is very experienced, knowledgeable, very calm and didactic to convey the information. If you are just starting in the music technology world, you will be able to learn through a concise, current and complete method to learn music technology used to compose songs through the computer. If you are a professional, you will be able to reflect about your work, reassess your work and polish your skills. In my particular situation, as I am naïve in this field, I have been learning with strong quality how to build a setup, how to create a template and the importance of having one, general information about equipment (hardware and software) and how to organize everything to produce a good work. I am eager to learn about each kind of template for strings, brass and so on. Leandro Gardini is a high level composer, very devoted for what he does. Definitely this course is highly recommended to everyone. It is the cornerstone for your success.
At first I was a little hesitant to enroll in Leandro Gardini’s “Scoring Tools Master Class” but I really liked the detail and depth of his orchestral mockups and I realized that my orchestral mockups were missing something, I just didn’t know what. Currently, I’m only five weeks into his twelve-week course but I’ve already discovered that although we have similar approaches to creating midi mockups, I was missing a lot of the detail and fine tuning that he puts into creating his orchestral template. Leandro’s text and video tutorials are very informative and paced in such a way that allows his students to not only develop a deep understanding of the content but to also apply those concepts to their own orchestral templates. I’m looking forward to the rest of the class and highly recommend Leandro Gardini’s “Scoring Tools Master Class” to anyone who wants to take their orchestral mockups to the next level.
So fr I would rate the course with an A++++. For what I was looking
for. the most interesting parts were (1) the template structure and
"why" and (2) the walk through of the different sample comparisons
discussing the significant attributes of each. It is something I know I
will review again and again as I develop my own template.
