For those of you who expressed interest in the nuts and bolts of my learning journey, I've provided a general outline for the current vision below. And if you are a joyfully curious composer/friend/nerd and would like to work through any of these books with me, yay (!!), and let's do it!
Anything/everything else is icing on the learning-cake, e.g. wrapping up any/all music-related Udemy courses, binge-listening to podcasts about composers/orchestration, etc. Cheers, all! I’m excited!
