Course Curriculum

The masterclass consists of two main sections. The first is a 12 part video series in which Eric distils the entire creative process, from the moment of inspiration to the final note. These chapters are intended to run sequentially. The second section is called “Things I’ve Learned”, a compilation of wisdom Eric has received throughout his career from teachers, mentors, and his own life experience.

Within the course curriculum, you’ll have access to 15 perusal scores (including choral, band and orchestral), reference sheets and useful links. In addition, there are extensive reference sheets, lesson plans and student guides, which are customised for three learning levels: those aged 11-16 with no musical training or knowledge of musical notation; upper school or university entry-level students with some musical experience and understanding of notation; and those aged 16-plus with existing musical training and the skills required to read and create music.

A personalised certificate is provided upon completion of the course. The asynchronous material is ideal for both individual and classroom instruction and allows students to work at a pace that suits them. The strategies and creative solutions discovered in this course can also be applied to many aspects of life, not only those interested in composition. The course is suitable for general music education, composers, performing ensembles or individual music-lovers.  

An invitation for online access to The Beautiful Mess will be sent via email within 1 working day of purchase.
