Bruce Gandy - Composition with Bruce Gandy [Vintage]


Bruce has compiled several books of compositions, which have quite literally changed the landscape of modern light music. Bruce's compositions were featured by several bands (in particular the 78th Frasers from Ontario) as they rose to the top of the world, and redifined the spirit and complexity of modern pipe band medleys. Bruce has taught at Dojo U before, but now we're going to see a different side of him - the creative side! We start with the basics - what type of tune are we looking to write. Also what its feel should be - happy, sad, etc. We then use chord structure to get a basic melody line and start to add to it. Then adding some technique to accentuate what we need. And yes... there is some homework! Session 1 of 4.
