A Complete, Step-by-Step Training Program for Practical Musicianship
What if there were a training program which could:
- Give you a rock-solid grounding in music theory
- Enable you to write music straight from your head, onto the page
- Enable you to sight read with confidence
- Enable you to look at sheet music and "hear" it in your head
- Help you to understand and analyse music on a deeper level…
A Training Program designed to guide you through Practical Musicianship, from FOUNDATIONS to ADVANCED.
A Program that takes you by the hand, and not only teaches you, but TRAINS you to become a better musician.
A Training Program that could Radically Transform the very foundations of your musicianship…
Every Significant Leap in your Musical Progress Starts with Practical Theory.
Hi – my name’s Oscar
You may know me from my YouTube channel, Inside the Score, where I teach people to appreciate, understand, and create music.
I’m blessed to have a diverse audience:
- Many people want to become better composers
- Others want to become better players and performers
- Many want to appreciate music on a deeper level
- Some want to become conductors
- And many want to be better teachers or educators
But there’s one thing that could help all of those people.
And that thing is MUSICALITY
Musicality is that instinctive, deep understanding of music, when you’ve absorbed theory to the point that it becomes second nature, and pours out in your music-making and musical understanding.
What I've realised is that it's one thing to 'know' theory - to read books, or watch videos.
It's another thing for it to truly be second nature.
Developing instinctive musicality will help in pretty much every area of your music-making and understanding.
But to get to this point, you need REAL TRAINING. This isn't something you can fake.
And it isn't something you can simply watch a video on, and then expect to 'have' it.
In my last few years working with tonnes of musicians all over the world, you can begin to see who has worked seriously on developing their musicality, and who hasn't. It just shows.
And actually, developing these skills can be much easier than you think.
I know this, because I’ve had my own fair share of troubles learning music...
In fact, my ears, my sight singing, and my practical theory all used to be a weakness of mine. When I first arrived at Cambridge, I quickly realised that I was missing a lot of key skills.
I remember my first ever rehearsal with my college choir – it was a well-known choir, so I was crazy nervous – and in the first rehearsal, the director stops us, looks at me, and says, “Oscar, you will capsize the whole ship if you do that”.
My ears were not good – I couldn’t tune well. I couldn’t easily process what I was hearing. I found rhythm challenging.
And I could not sight read, at all.
I was at the bottom of the pack.
And it felt frustrating. It was difficult. I was struggling to keep up.
And worst of all, I KNEW it. I knew that I was missing these skills. I almost resented those people who made it look so easy.
But the one thing I did have going for me:
I wasn’t going to quit. I was going to DECIDE to get better
I knew that to keep up with my peers, I had to really work at these skills. I had to up my game.
And so: I made a decision that I was ready to take my musicianship to the next level.
I saw what was possible, and decided to be a part of it. So that’s what I did.
Every evening in my room, I would sit down and get to work – drilling my sight reading, my ear training, my writing, my theory.
And in that process, I learned what works, and what doesn’t work. I learnt how to develop a REAL skill set which has a significant impact on my all-round musicianship.
Fast forward to today...
I can now look back at that learning period, and what it led me to accomplish.
It’s because of these skills that I’ve been able to perform with ensembles all over the world.
I’ve been able to conduct orchestras and choirs in the USA and UK.
I’ve been able to compose music for short films and commercials.
To provide a music education to a worldwide online audience through my YouTube channel.
I acknowledge that I still have huge amounts to learn (and I always will)...
But it was these skills – the fundamental skills of musicianship – that unlocked these doors. Without musicianship, I simply couldn’t have achieved any of it.
Having Practical Musicianship was the BIG DIFFERENCE for me.
The difference between being able to compose confidently, and being clueless.
The difference between being able to direct an orchestra, and looking like an idiot.
But it all started with that first step. That first decision: To TAKE ACTION.
I don't want to "teach" you. I want to TRAIN you.
I’ve been teaching these skills for several years now, and the most important thing for me when teaching is TAKING ACTION: Actually using what you’ve learnt!
When I teach something, it’s not just about "knowing what something is"...
It’s about getting you to use these things, so you can really see how they work, from the inside.
Because it’s when you’re actually using these concepts that you become fluent in them – that they become part of your bloodstream.
That’s why my teaching is focused on DOING, not just watching some videos or learning a concept.
This isn't theory: this is a proven path.
The point is: I’ve developed a process, over my many years of learning these skills.
This is a process which is extremely effective at training your ear, your reading, and your theoretical understanding of music.
This is something that I’ve used myself, to get to where I am. And it really works.
This program isn’t for everybody.
If you are currently “tone deaf”, utterly unmusical, or have absolutely no experience with music at all, then this course probably isn't for you.
If you are totally unmusical, but still want to work on your music, I would suggest finding one-on-one tuition.
Before taking this course, ask yourself:
- If someone plays a note on the piano, can you sing or play it back accurately?
- Can you recognise whether one note is higher or lower than another note?
- Can you follow or carry a tune?
- Can you recognise or hear Octaves?
- Are you capable of remembering basic tunes easily? (e.g. your favourite melodies)
- Can you keep in time with a simple beat?
These may seem like very basic questions (if so, good!).
But there are definitely people out there who struggle with these things. If you do struggle, then I'm afraid this course isn't really for you.
This program is designed to take sight reading, ear training, and writing to a university level, and so it's not appropriate for people who struggle with the absolute basics of musicianship...
However, if you already appreciate, enjoy, and maybe practise a bit of music, but now want to really train your skills to a high level, this program is for you.
Since you’re already here, you probably do have some sense of musicality already. And whether you’re a performer, a composer, or a listener, you probably want to develop these skills.
So let’s talk about the training program...
THE MUSICALITY TRAINING PROGRAM
The Step By Step, Action-Based Course for Training Your Musicianship From Beginner to Advanced
How Does It Work?
I’ve broken down this system into 13 modules.
The first module is the absolute foundations - the total groundwork of practical theory. If you've been studying music for a while, you'll probably find this early stuff quite easy.
But that's actually the point: we start with the groundwork, and we build up, and up, and up from that, until we're covering technically advanced theory.
With each module, the challenge increases very gradually, until by Module 13 we'll be covering some amazing things including the art of transposition (playing music in a different key to what's written), the art of score reading (playing music from a full score on the piano), the art of transcribing music in multiple parts, and more.
For each module, it is as simple as following the videos through in order, and completing the activities and challenges when you’re called to.
Each section has bite-sized, digestible chunks of music theory. Then, once you’ve learnt the theory, you’re immediately thrown into action with a variety of different exercises. I want to take you beyond knowing, into actually using this theory, so that it sinks in deep.
Each module combines rhythm, pitch, and ear training. Each module also works on training your sight reading, transcription, and writing.
Why these skills? Because these are the skills that feed into EVERYTHING else that you do in music. When you learn to read music, it’s not just about reading–it’s about learning to PROCESS what you see on the page.
When you learn to transcribe, it’s not just about writing–it’s about MAKING SENSE of everything that you’re hearing.
These skills are incredibly important for becoming a fantastic all-round musician, and so in the spirit of making a holistic program, I had to include them.
I'm going to take you step by step through your musicianship training...
Modules 1-3 are the Foundational Modules.
We'll get you used to reading, writing, and hearing foundational rhythm - whole notes, half notes, quarter notes, eighth notes, and their rests, as well as simple time signatures.
We'll also have you train your basic relative pitch - being able to move around scales easily, just by thinking about it.
And by the end of Module 3, we'll have you comfortably reading in treble and bass clef.
But more than that, because of the way we teach it, by the end of Module 3 you'll be comfortable reading basic music in ALL key signatures.
Now, you might already know some of this stuff - and that's great. But remember, there's a HUGE difference between "knowing" something, and being TRAINED in it.
If you want to become truly "fluent" with music, you need to train - and that starts with the very basics.
Modules 4-8 are the Intermediate Modules.
Here's where we start escalating things. We'll get you reading, writing, and hearing rhythms in sixteenth notes (including some quite hellish exercises I've designed to push your comfort zone). We'll be getting comfortable with dots, double dots, changing time signatures, moving between different meters quickly, and even 32nd and 64th notes.
As for pitch and ear training, we'll be moving towards reading more complex music with accidentals, and in plenty of different modes.
Remember, again: it's one thing to "know what these things are". But here, we're all about TRAINING you to read, write, and hear these things fluently.
Modules 9-13 are the Advanced Modules.
Here is where things start to get really exciting. We'll play a lot with metric accents and syncopations, mixing compound and simple meters, mastering triplets, duplets, and other tuplets, working with irregular meters, and figuring out tricky metric modulations.
In terms of pitch, we move beyond sight reading towards hardcore ear training. This includes developing comfort within dissonance, singing tricky intervals over dissonant chords, transcribing music with multiple lines, recognising harmonies, tuning theory, and more.
Towards the end, we even cover how to go about training advanced skills such as transcribing music in four parts, score reading progressions, transposition, and more.
This module is all about pushing you well beyond your comfort zone to an ADVANCED level, so that when you come back to the real world, most of it will feel easy by comparison. That's when you know you've truly mastered your musicianship.
I know that the process of learning theory can sometimes be painful or challenging, so I’ve aimed to make this as simple, natural, and hopefully as engaging and interesting as possible. This program walks you through this whole progression, every step of the way.
Also, once you have access, you will have access for life, so you can go back over the material at your own leisure.
So by now, you're probably thinking this sounds pretty cool...
But we're just getting started!
I thought about how I could make this offer even better. And I came up with a list of powerful bonuses that will make the Musicality Training Program completely irresistible.
The First Bonus Is...
The Foundations of Conducting
While this course’s primary focus is musicianship, I would be remiss if I didn’t at least teach you the basics of conducting.
If you’re ever in a position where you’ll be directing an ensemble, or leading a rehearsal, this is an extremely useful skill to have.
It means that you'll know the beat patterns and strategies to guide musicians through even quite complex meters.
Throughout this course, I’ll be giving you miniature conducting lessons, to complement the theory we're learning.
The SECOND Bonus Is...
The Foundations of Harmony
Harmony is another skill that I would normally separate from foundational musicianship.
But I wanted to make sure that you have a solid, foundational training in functional harmony – the kind of harmony you’d hear in most popular music.
So, in the latter half of the program, I’ve integrated in a mini-course on chords and basic functional harmony. This will teach you the foundations of harmony, but also how to hear and recognise chord progressions aurally, and how it all works on a theoretical and practical level.
The THIRD Bonus Is...
The Choral Music Primer
Singing in choirs is an amazing way to develop musicianship – you need to be able to sight sing, tune carefully, listen to what’s going on around you, and figure out how your part fits into a bigger picture.
The trouble is, you’d normally need to be in a choir for several years to have good experience. I wanted to change that.
I wanted to make sure you had REAL-WORLD music to study, along with the program.
So I’ve included this Choral Music Primer, where we go through some of the best compositions from Mozart, Bach, Brahms, Tallis, and many other composers from past and present.
I’ve turned it into a “linear” progression, where we start with more basic music, and gradually progress in complexity.
I know that not all of you are familiar with singing or choral music – so I even added in a mini-course to teach you how to approach and sing choral music. This mini-course will help you to find your voice part, and teach you the fundamental skills needed to succeed in a choral environment.
I’ll also teach you my top tips for studying choral music at home.
Normally, to get this much choral experience, you have to join a choir, and possibly sing with them for years – and there’s no sense of progression from easier music to harder music. You just have to sing whatever music you’re given.
But in this course, I’ve created that sense of progression. So you’ll be able to come out of it saying – yes, I can sing with choirs - no problem! AND, you'll become familiar with some of the most beautiful music ever written!
I wanted to give you an education that would take you beyond the skills most people have at university.
The truth is that I’ve met Master’s students who don’t have these skills, and that’s after spending tens of thousands on their education – it’s almost insane.
So that’s thousands on their education, plus several years of their life devoted to music... And they still haven’t developed these crucial musicianship skills!
Even if you were just taking private theory lessons, it could take you at least 30 hours of lessons to maybe become moderately proficient. 30 hours with a good teacher could cost over $1,500...
Add on Conducting lessons, Harmony lessons, and experience with a choir, and you're looking at thousands of dollars, plus several years of your life...
But that's the beauty of an online training program...
You can get the Musicality Training Program, plus all the Bonuses, for only $297.
30 - Day Money Back Guarantee
I want to make sure this program is right for you. So you have a full 30 days to see if this is a good fit. If you decide that it isn’t, you can let me know and I’ll gladly refund your money – no hassles, no hard feelings.
Now, just to lock this in as a great investment in your musical future, I've got one more extra bonus for you.
And that bonus is...
I know that there are people out there who want to learn to compose. And so, at the end of each module I've included a Composing Challenge.
This is where you'll have to use the theory we've learnt in that module, to compose something completely new. You can write an entirely new piece of music after each module. That would be 13 new pieces of music by the end of the program!
I will also be giving restrictions to your music (e.g. you must not use the note C), just to add an extra degree of challenge and fun to the process.
See What Students Have Been Saying About the Musicality Training Program
If you're wondering whether this program is right for you, here are some case studies from students who went through the Test Group. These videos will show you the transformations that are possible when you decide to train your musicianship. They'll tell you who they are, where they were before the program, and what the Musicality Program did for their musicianship!
Remember, if you really want to become a confident musician, then you have to take your training seriously. You have to build your musicality. You need some kind of structured action; a tried and tested approach which will truly get you there.
I am not some musical magician. I just figured out this method, and have been developing it and working on it over the last 8 years – refining it, adding to it, perfecting it.
And the result is a system, a process, a program that I hope can be applied very successfully, over and over again.
