Learn the craft of composition (including harmony and counterpoint) and orchestration through the music styles from early to contemporary classical music. My lessons are based mainly on analysis from music from composers like Palestrina, Beethoven, Wagner, Scriabin, Debussy, Ravel, Schoenberg, Stravinsky, Berg, Webern, Bartok, Messiaen, Ligeti. But I am open to exploring other composers if the student is interested. Some important treatises will be mentioned as complimentary reading.

My lessons are also suitable for composition students in UNI who:

  • wants to deepen their knowledge on counterpoint techniques, harmony (including jazz),  XXth century compositional techniques and orchestration.
  • needs advice on their own original music
  • needs help for assignment and analysis


One thought on “Composition

  1. Music theory can be confusing and frustrating for the beginner and those trying to progress in the subject of harmony. I have studied music theory for years, and coming across Sabino de Bari has given me that extra bit of confidence to be able to feel more at home in it, because of his method of helping the student putting into practice whatever they know about music.

    Sabino’s expertise as a musician and composer, together with his contagious enthusiasm and openness to all sorts of music, provides the perfect un-inhibiting atmosphere for learning and making headway in this fascinating art form.
