About Marc Jovani
For nearly ten years, Marc Jovani has been working at the highest level of film, providing music for many major studios such as Lionsgate, Syfy, FOX and most recently NETFLIX. He has also composed music for television shows and movies distributed on leading, nationally broadcasted television channels, including Lifetime (USA), TF1 (France), the Hallmark Channel (USA), Canale 5 (Italy), Antena 3 (Spain), HBO (USA) and more. 

Having received international recognition for numerous prestigious productions, Marc’s ability to enhance the experience of the audience is what makes him unique. Jovani’s ability to elevate onscreen drama through his well defined musical voice is what makes his contribution so valuable.

His scores have been then recorded with some of the best orchestras and have been conducted by the composer himself in renowned studios such as the historic Eastwood Scoring Stage at Warner Bros studios in Burbank, The EastWest Scoring Stage in Hollywood, The Bridge Recording in Glendale, and the Village Studios in Los Angeles, among others. In addition to conventional musical composition, Marc specialises in contemporary hybrid scores. In combining modern electronic elements with the now standard orchestral pallet, Marc creates a unique and identifiable sonic identity for every project.

The quality of the above-mentioned productions is illustrated by the national and international accolades they have received, as well as their selection for exhibition at numerous widely attended and high-profile international film festivals.
Praise For The 'Symphonic Virtual Orchestration' Course

John Powell - Film Composer (How to Train Your Dragon)

“Andy Hill has the ability to deconstruct and explain the process of writing film scores with extraordinary clarity, all the while imbuing the subject with a fervor that should, in my opinion, be reserved only for European football matches and Baptist revival meetings.”

Christopher Young - Film Composer (Spider-Man)

You MUST get this – While most analytical books are written by academics, Andy was right there in the thick of things as a member of the Disney music department, while the majority of the scores in the book were actually being recorded. Not to mention, it is so alive with his mad passion for film music.

Conrad Pope - Composer/Orchestrator (Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone)

“Andy Hill is among the handful of penetrating minds and ears engaged in film music today.”

Bruce Broughton - Composer (Silverado)

“Andy Hill’s ‘Scoring the Screen’ is, like its author, thoughtful, incisive and full of solidly interesting insights into the technique, craft and emotional magic of film scores and the composers who create them.”

Daniel Carlin - Professor & Chair/Director, Scoring for Motion Pictures and Television, Thornton School of Music, University of Southern California

“Andrew Hill displays the comprehensive knowledge, wisdom, and reverence required to provide informed and practical insight into the art and craft of composing screen music. His background as a practicing musician, Disney studio music-executive, and college-level educator enables him to intelligently—and sometimes amusingly—reveal the magic behind the film-composer’s curtain.”

Robert Townson - Film Music Producer (Varèse Sarabande Records and Varèse Live)

“Andy presents his case that the finest composers to have worked in film over the last eighty years have contributed genuine masterpieces of music and drama to our culture. A film score must excel at both to be successful, and this is so beautifully illustrated in Hill’s elegant prose

Having produced new recordings of To Kill A Mockingbird — with Elmer Bernstein — and Patton — with Jerry Goldsmith — and examined these and other scores in great detail with the composers themselves, I found myself very moved by Hill’s like-minded analysis. Part of the film composer’s art is in fact to conceal the effort and the intellect that goes in to the creation of their scores. Hill thankfully lifts the veil. I am thrilled to see such a rare spotlight illuminating the artistry behind these masterworks.”

“Either if you’re a beginner or a seasoned professional, the Symphonic Virtual Orchestration course is a great place to build on that knowledge and continue learning about music production.”

Medhat Hanbali - Composer

Whether it’s a film, TV show, video game or music production, the information you will learn in this class is very valuable and will be useful for the rest of your career.

Steve Schwartz - Composer

“These courses have been a fantastic experience thus far. I'm already learning more than I ever could. It's far superior than just searching for online tuts. This course is all a hit!.”

Alan Lorden - Creative Director at Rusted Gate Music in Raleigh, North Carolina.

"If you’ve been looking for real world, workable answers and solutions on how to set up and structure an effective film composition recording and production environment this is the course for you. The modern composer has to fill many roles beyond just coming up with the music. You’re also expected to provide score mockups, be the arranger, music editor, sound designer and pretty much anything else that involves the music side of a movie or television show. Film composer Marc Jovani cuts to the chase on setting up workable templating, the pros and cons of many popular sound libraries, best practices for mixing and mastering along with tips on how to handle the variety and complexity of requests you will encounter this business. Marc’s passion for film scoring is only surpassed by his desire to educate both aspiring and established composers to be the best and most competitive music professionals they can be."

Thomas Rhea - VI Control user: Maestro1972

"I am only into day 2, I am so impressed! The chat/interactive video chat, the assignments, and the customer service is WAY more than I thought this experience was going to be."

What others have asked
before joining Symphonic Virtual Orchestration Lite
   I don't have time to take this course right now. Should I still buy it?
CUSTOM JAVASCRIPT / HTML
BUT you can go at your own pace. Don’t need to follow the course’s schedule.  The course materials do not expire and you’ll have access to them for life. Even for the future course updates and improvements!

The duration is 6-8 weeks approx. You can do it a bit faster, or take as much time as you want/need. 

Or you could even take advantage of the discount now, and be doing the course later. The chat sessions get recorded and you can watch the replay whenever you want.

Also, you’ll have access to the course materials for life, as well as to the Facebook group AND the weekly chats. You can join any weekly chat that you want, even if your course has finished.
   Does this course include assignments?
No, assignments are not included in this version of the SVO course. This is the main difference between this version and the $775 one that you can see find our site. 

If you want to add assignments to this course, you can always buy assignments revisions later on at a reduced price inside the course.
   I'm using ________ (name any sequencer here). Can I still take the course?
We use Cubase. But, all the concepts that you'll learn apply across the board, no matter what sequencer you use. In fact, more than a 1/2 of our students are Logic users. 

The same concept about libraries. You can learn and apply all the concepts taught in the course using any basic library (Logic stock orchestral samples, EWQL, etc). Once you're in the course, you'll have a better idea of what is the next library that you wanna buy. Plus, you'll be around a great community of composers who already own those libraries and can give you valuable feedback or advice what library to invest in next.

Also, when you join Symphonic Virtual Orchestration you'll get access to a private Facebook group. The Facebook group is a great place to ask questions if you get stuck. That’s where you’re really going to get a lot of extra help and encouragement when you’re stuck or when you're trying to apply the concepts learned in the course to your own DAW, both from Marc and from other composers who can speak to your exact issues.
   Do I need to buy any sample library before taking this course?
Read the answer to the last question 👆

Also, once you enroll to this course, you can get access to discounts on many sample libraries and plugins! Just ask for a certificate of enrollment once you're in.

This course will pay for itself with the amount of money you'll save from educational discounts you'll get! ;)
   How long will I have access to the SVO course materials?
You’ll have access to the course materials for life, as well as to the Facebook group AND the weekly chats. You can join any weekly chat that you want, even if your course has finished. And the chat sessions are recorded, so you can watch them at any time.
   Do I need a Mac to take this course? What type of computer do I need?
You don't need a Mac for this course. Marc uses a PC. Half of our SVO students are Mac, the other half are PC.

Any computer, desktop or laptop, with an i5 or similar (i7 desired), 4-8Gb of RAM (16 desired), and 150Gb of free HDD storage for samples (SSD desired) will be enough to get you started. You can always upgrade later.
   I don't understand English. Is this course in Spanish as well?
All the videos are in English and Spanish. Yes, you can take this course if Spanish is you main language and you struggle with English. 
   I cannot read music and have never taken orchestration classes or anything like that. I have learned everything by ear. Will I still be able to successfully complete the course?
Honestly, we have lots of fun and engaging conversations with students who don’t have formal training. Sometimes, when you’ve got a lot of training you can develop complexes or insecurities about what is right or wrong, what you should or shouldn’t do when composing, and so forth.

We’re recently getting more students who don’t read music and instead produce by ear. In this course we don’t approach music in a traditional way. We don’t talk about notes. Instead, we approach mockup production as a collection musical ideas, layers, orchestral families, and musical gestures.

In addition, this course puts emphasis on the production side: sound, mixing, plugins, libraries, mastering, and so forth.

If you’re one of those with little or no traditional formal training, you’ll still gain loads of practical, useful information and experience in this course. We’d love to have you on board!
   How is the course build? And is there some kind of certificate we receive at the end?
The course consists of weekly lessons, based on videos and PDFs. The course also includes weekly live video-chats with Marc or the Cinematic Composing teachers and the rest of the students, and a private Facebook group where you can ask questions.

Once you get access to the private Facebook group, you'll be able to join periodical masterclasses with Hollywood composers and mixing engineers for free. The last ones we did were with Spider Man composer Christopher Young, Riverdale composer Blake Neely, and mixing engineer Bobby Fernandez, among others.

At the end of the course, you'll get a certificate of completion.
   Do you have a refund policy?
Yes. We are giving you a full 30 DAYS to go through the training, implement what you learn, and watch your production skills begin to grow.

If you reach out within 30 days to show us that you haven’t seen any progress, then we’ll be happy to return the investment.

Having produced new recordings of To Kill A Mockingbird — with Elmer Bernstein — and Patton — with Jerry Goldsmith — and examined these and other scores in great detail with the composers themselves, I found myself very moved by Hill’s like-minded analysis. Part of the film composer’s art is in fact to conceal the effort and the intellect that goes in to the creation of their scores. Hill thankfully lifts the veil. I am thrilled to see such a rare spotlight illuminating the artistry behind these masterworks.”
