As a Composer Participant you will receive three online composition lessons by Bob Brookmeyer (done at the time he was writing his album, Spirit Music). Each lesson includes an audio lecture, written exercises, lead sheets, and audio demonstrations. In addition, you will be able to study Bob’s development of the music from the 'Spirit Music' album through journal entries, audio demonstrations, interviews, photo galleries, video clips, and samples of the written music in progress.

This offer is geared towards musicians of every level. The unique online lessons contain ideas that will allow you to hear Bob’s compositions in a new way.

The Composer Participant offer also includes the 2006 Bob Brookmeyer and the New Art Orchestra’s limited edition Spirit Music" download.
