Looking to compose like Hans Zimmer? Now, Orchestral Tools and Berklee College of Music are helping you with that goal with their new YouTube channel, Virtual Orchestration.

In collaboration with Berklee College, Orchestral Tools has launched a brand new YouTube channel, Virtual Orchestration.

The new channel by the infamous college and software instrument creator is designed to help anyone and everyone learn the art of composing with sampled orchestral instruments. Furthermore, the collaborative partners aim all episodes at both aspiring composers and those with experience looking to learn new skills.

Whether you’re just starting out in composition or looking to learn some new tricks of the trade, Virtual Orchestration has something to offer. We’re thrilled to open the doors to the next generation of composers by making this free resource available. And with the expertise of Berklee behind it, we’re sure that this channel is going to inspire some incredible music

The Virtual Orhcetsration content is hosted by composer Alex Lamy and is set to explore every aspect of the compositional process. In other words, the information available in the videos is a product of a wealth of expert knowledge that’s been neatly organized into digestible content that anyone can learn from.

In addition to some well-known special guest presenters, the content has been created alongside the faculty of Berklee College of Music’s Screen Scoring department. The result is content that’s designed to be both inspiring and practical with a wealth of knowledge that you can implement into your music and creative workflow quickly.

The screen scoring department is always exploring new ways to educate our students and expand the platform upon which music can be taught through new ideas and technologies. These are values that Orchestral Tools share with us and as such it’s been a wonderful project to pool our collective expertise in creating a free learning resource for a wider audience.
