Counterpoint class - Alan Belkin Youtube

Post by James Stephens » Fri Mar 09, 2018 3:59 pm

Composer Alan Belkin is offering another free class via his Youtube chanel. This time he's teaching counterpoint. It's funded via patreon and his own funds. He's a talented composer with an impressive career as a composer and educator. Like most theory courses, it's not aimed specifically at guitarists but should still prove to be very useful for those interested in counterpoint and composition.

Here's the first video in the series. He has three so far. The others can be found on his Youtube chanel in his counterpoint playlist.

That was really interesting - thanks for posting. I am not a composer, but this will be very helpful for me, when I tackle pieces with counterpoint.

I'm glad you found it interesting.

I've just noticed that he's added another lesson to the course. First species counterpoint.

I just wanted to mention that Mr. Belkin has finished this series on counterpoint. It's an excellent resource for those interested in the subject and definitely worth checking out.
