A 30 DAY GUARANTEE
I’m giving you a full 30 DAYS to go through the training, to do the assignments, to implement what you learn, and watch your production skills to grow.

If you reach out within 30 days to show me that you’ve kept up with all the work (you have to show me proof!), and for some crazy reason STILL haven’t seen any progress, then I’ll be happy to return the investment. But, you DO have to do the work! :-)
What The Symphonic Virtual Orchestration students are saying...

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.

What others have asked
before joining The Symphonic Virtual Orchestration
How long will it take me to get through the course?
Week one starts with module one. Every week opens a new module. The course takes 8 weeks if you're doing one week per module.
Can I get behind? Do I have to follow the course's pace or can I go my own?
You can take as long as you want to complete the course. You can go at your own pace or follow the course’s schedule of approximately 8 weeks. Whatever you choose, the materials are always there and you can submit the assignments whenever you want. They will always get reviewed, no matter how late you submit them.
The course materials do not expire and you’ll have access to them for life, including future course updates and improvements!
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.
 I have a busy life. Will I have the time to do this?
You can’t get behind in this course. Even though we go through a new module every week, it’s there for you whenever you’re ready, and is accessible on any mobile device.
How much time per week is necessary if I want to follow your schedule?
It depends on the week. Some weeks you’ll be done in 50 minutes, some weeks you’ll have to spend some hours.
Also, if you decide to do the assignments (which we encourage since it’s the best way to learn), then it’s going to take a bit longer since you’ll be producing an orchestral cue that will be reviewed.
But if you’re late submitting an assignment, that’s ok. Marc will always review the assignments, no matter when you submit them, even if you’re done sometime after the course closes. This course is designed to accommodate your personal and professional life, allowing you to use the course materials and do the assignments when you can, while allowing you to keep the course materials forever.
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!
Will there be actual Orchestration lessons or just how to shape sound?
The first modules Synthestration lessons, which are all about “orchestrating and arranging for samples”. Then, the mixing and mastering modules will cover all aspects of “how to shape the sound.”
Also, the course covers the basics of real, traditional orchestration.
Finally, all students at Symphonic Virtual Orchestration get 50% off of any other course from CinematicComposing.com. The new Orchestration Course is now available, and more courses are being planned.
Is this course geared towards to writing/orchestration of the music or more the mixing side of things?
This is an advanced course on orchestral/hybrid mockup production. Yes, it touches on some of the more basic concepts, but it will require you to already have some experience and basic orchestration and composing knowledge. The first part is about synthestration techniques (orchestrating for samples).
The second part is all about advanced orchestral mixing and mastering techniques. This part is about 70% of the course materials, and it is the core of the SVO course.
Most courses will cover the basics (expression, modulation, articulations, keyswitches, and similar topics). This course touches those concepts, but puts the emphasis on concepts like orchestral mixing depth, specific synthestration techniques, advanced mixing automation with orchestral stems, applying reverb properly to make our mockups sound bigger (while still keeping separation and avoiding muddiness), and many more advanced and practical topics.
On top of that, the PRO version includes the masterclass with score mixing engineer Bobby Fernandez. You’ll have a chance to directly ask him questions during the live video chat.
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. At the end of every lesson, there's an assignment. The course also includes 

 - a weekly live video-chat with Marc and the rest of the students
 - assignments that get reviewed by Marc
 - a private Facebook group where you'll post the assignments that will get reviewed and you can ask questions. 
 - a live orchestral mixing masterclass with 3 times Grammy mixing engineer Bobby Fernandez (PRO version)
 - another live composing masterclass with Spiderman composer Christopher Young (tips on how to get you started in the industry, now that you know how to produce professional sounding mockups)

At the end of the course, you'll get a certificate of completion.
I see you have different tiers of join up, what is the difference?
Yes, we’ve got three versions: Basic, PRO and EXPERT.

The Basic is the bare bones version of the course.

The PRO version is the one that 90% of our students take because it includes the Bobby Fernandez masterclass plus the 4 case studies.

About 5% of our students sign up for the EXPERT version. It’s designed for those who want this VIP sort of treatment 🙂 or more of a 1-to-1 experience. The main difference is a private class with Marc, plus another private class with a composer working in major projects in Hollywood, plus the exact list of Marc’s template with libraries, patches, and settings.
The weekly group chats are the same for all three versions.
Do you have a refund policy?
Yes. We are giving you a full 30 DAYS to go through the training, do the assignments, implement what you learn, and watch your production skills begin to grow.
If you reach out within 30 days to show me that you’ve kept up with all the work (you have to show me proof!), and for some reason still haven’t seen any progress, then I’ll be happy to return the investment.
