It's about time to revolutionize music composition with innovative Interval Theory techniques. We help composers create more expressive and meaningful music.
Most composers feel trapped in mediocre music!
In particular, they know that they write ordinary chord progressions and generic melodies. Conventional music theory pushes everybody towards the same mediocre sound and patterns!
Let's change this! Imagine seeing your name on top of the score and others asking: "How the heck did he come up with that idea?" We believe you should be proud of your original work and feel good about it!
Our members don't struggle anymore ...
Don't be tricked into believing that most of the composers you admire are (or were) born geniuses. It's a fact that the vast majority of great composers are trained.
Listen to members' results!
Ready to experience the power of applied Interval Theory? Our playlist below features various compositions from academy members. Please take a few moments and dive in and discover how Interval Theory can improve the music you write. So, let's stop talking and start listening!
"If you struggle, it's not your fault".
We know what it feels like to spend hours or even days on just one piece of music, and still, it sounds generic and boring! :(
We've successfully taught innovative and unique composition techniques to (literally) hundreds of composers just like you.
Ready to finally start YOUR musical adventure today?
MITA combines the best of two worlds, the Diatonic system, and the intervals. You are in total control of how much spice you want to add to your composition. This is simply the best method out there!
MITA offers a new and revolutionary perspective that allows composers to see music in a different way. If you are a composer, musician, or orchestrator, I highly recommend joining!
Before MITA, my writing was very predictable, staying safe within the diatonic/ modal world which worked for me up to a point. But now, I write orchestral compositions I never knew I was capable of!
MITA is a real gem to me. In simple words, it's the most efficient music generator and I use it on a daily basis!
MITA has pretty much eradicated writer’s block for me. The intervallic approach is unique, and it works! Highly recommended to everybody who is struggling with writer's block.
In just a single week, MITA expanded my compositional knowledge beyond what I learned at my own tertiary institution- and continues to do so! It's such a unique way of writing musical ideas.
MITA removes the confines of traditional Diatonic thinking thus freeing up the creative path. It has also given me the confidence to compose in any style and get great results much faster!
MITA has been a game-changer in the way I write music for commercials, trailers, television, and feature films. With tight deadlines, I always feel like I have a competitive edge over other writers!
MITA is much more than a music theory course. It's deeply practical and has transformed my creative process, how I think about music, and, of course, my results. I'm very happy to be a part of the MITA family.
Since starting my MITA training, I find myself finishing songs within 3-4 hours. Now, I really enjoy writing music every day. This is musical freedom!
MITA gives me the tools and a bigger palette of compositional techniques that I can apply to any genre of music. It's like learning and perfecting a new and exciting language.
I composed 27 pieces in the last six months, thanks to the methodology taught inside the Academy! It has helped me a lot to discover and speak my own musical voice!

Rise Above The Crowd
The world doesn't need another Mozart! It needs YOU! Start telling your own and unique musical stories!
We've got you covered!
At MITA, we know you are the kind of composer who wants to be more original, break out of the usual clichées, and maybe even inspire others. In order to be that way, you need to understand the connection between the tones and the intervals they create because, eventually, you want to use this knowledge in your original compositions. We know you want to be in total control and remove the guessing part that makes you feel insecure.
The problem is that conventional theory doesn't get you there!
However, we believe that every composer should have access to all the puzzle pieces to build his musical dream life. This is fundamentally important, and we understand the frustration many composers go through, and it's not their fault!
That's why we teach a transparent methodology and proven concepts that lead to great results! Here's how it works:
Join MITA today, so you can stop wasting your time waiting for inspiration and hunting for ideas. Stop the musical frustration and start rising above the generic sound of everybody else.
You also might have wondered ...
I'm not sure if MITA is right for me. Are there any requirements?
Being able to read music notation is highly recommended. And if you want to become a more rounded composer, boost your writing skills, and explore new territories, then our Academy is the perfect place for you!
But generally speaking, there are no requirements or prerequisites for joining.
The offer sounds intriguing, but what happens if I'm not happy?
We'll never ask you to trust the unknown blindly. Instead, we want to help you make a well-informed decision about whether Interval Theory is for you.
Please read more about our "30 Days to go back to the musical world how you knew it!" guarantee below.
I know the Diatonic system quite well. What can MITA teach me then?
It's fantastic that you've got the hang of Diatonic theory. MITA doesn't teach the conventional approach to composition as found at music universities or in teaching books.
We specialize in shifting the perspective to Interval Theory and teach a most practical methodology that leads to sophisticated and unique results. It's the perfect complement to conventional music theory.

1 Month Pass
The Interval Theory Core Program (paid monthly)
We want you to reach your musical goals as quickly as possible, and that's why the members love the Core Program!
The first item we suggest you dive into inside the Academy is
"Your First 10 Days To Rapidly Growing Your Composition Skills".
That's a convenient daily plan of action that suggests various content pieces and leads to great results quickly. With as little as 20-30 minutes per day, this guide shows what to do and leads to quick results. It suggests three sections for each day:
1. Critical (~ 20-30 min.)
2. Recommended (~ 20-50 min.)
3. Optional (~ 30-60 min.)
If you only have a little time, prioritize the critical section and study the other parts later. Our guide fits perfectly into busy schedules and allows for significant progress next to your day job or other duties.
And if you have more time available, you'll get out of this plan even stronger!
Finding your way from conventional Diatonic theory to Interval Theory is easy. The Interval Theory Basic Course covers everything to help you compose with the intervals right away and provides a smooth transition into all following content pieces.
Learn more about the Interval Theory Basic Course.
Most often, it's just one tiny puzzle piece that causes a ton of friction in the musical workflow. The spotlight courses are designed to fill those gaps efficiently using best practices based on Interval Theory. Think about how much time you've spent focusing on just one small detail only to find out that you've wasted half of your day with no real musical result. Let's end this today.
Learn more about the Spotlight Classes & Courses.
Here's the truth: To reach your musical dream life, you need to invest your time, effort, and focus. And that's the only proven way to get past this musical plateau that you've been on for long enough.
To help you maximize your results and master this comprehensive value source, you'll get one lesson (video explanation, PDFs, audio, and support for the implementation) per month via MITA Coins.
Learn more about the Interval Theory Composition Course.
Wouldn't it be great if you could base your decision-making in orchestration on clear concepts and guidelines as opposed to reading 400 pages about 'what you can do with the strings'?
It's all about the delicate dance of practical knowledge that really works and your unique voice and musical taste! Find out what it is that you like in a particular orchestration so that you can express yourself most honestly without copying other composers.
Learn more about the Orchestration Concepts.
Although we help you pursue your long-term goals, quick wins are essential to staying motivated and having fun. Every week we give you one quick implementation tip that you can use right away.

And we reserve a place for you in the community.
Here's the truth: Learning a new skill takes time, and you can't cheat time/experience!
Please don't believe in any ad or statement telling you that you'll turn into a master composer in a few weeks. Instead, we help you move through the vast content inside the Academy and make sure that you don't lose track of your goals.
The monthly MITA Coins help you focus on one lesson at a time to solidify your newly achieved knowledge about Interval Theory and build on solid ground.

Immediate Lifetime Access to EVERYTHING
This tier gives you immediate access to all the existing and future content, including all events and bonuses!
You'll get the whole package and immediate access to all of the Academy's content! You'll be able to jump directly into all the courses & classes, skip the Coins system, and start implementing Interval Theory right away. Here are some of the highlights you'll get:
You'll also get unrestricted access to all the other items listed below for the monthly/yearly membership, including all the great bonuses. It's really the full package!
All the teaching materials come with pre-recorded videos and downloadable PDFs and MP3s so that you can go through the courses at your own pace.
But your Lifetime Access Pass also offers the opportunity to have weekly 1-on-1 video sessions with TC or Frank, the Music Interval Theory Academy co-founders and course authors (Q&A, feedback sessions, etc.) at no additional cost.
These sessions will help you implement the concepts and techniques most efficiently and quickly. You'll get the time and attention needed to make significant headway on your composition skillset.
Your MITA account will never expire, and you'll enjoy lifetime access to all the content, including all future content, at no additional cost or conditions.
This is the all-inclusive tier for the committed composer who values his time and wants to apply interval theory best practices to her/his compositions.
The costs for traditional music education can quickly go up to 20,000.00 EUR or more (per year only), depending on the institution, even when taking online classes only.
Our experience as pro composers who also went through the conventional way of learning first shows that the whole model of music education is old-fashioned and rusty.
Please don't get us wrong. Understanding the basics of music theory is essential before you go deeper into more advanced techniques. And we'll even provide that FOR FREE in the Interval Theory Toolkit! (coming soon, please stay connected and hop on the email list if you're interested in that)
During our studies at music university, we spent most of our time analyzing classical composers, which only taught us how to write in those composers' styles. The truth is that nobody ever will hire you to write like Mozart or Bach! This knowledge won't let you survive if you want to become a working composer in the industry.
Instead, music theory should teach you how to become the most elegant and efficient musical storyteller you can be, all based on your unique voice and for an affordable investment.
And that's exactly what we focus on inside the Academy!
We fully understand that you might not feel ready to go with the Lifetime Access Pass before you've seen what's happening inside the Academy - and that's totally ok!
And that's why we offer an upgrade option from monthly and yearly.
Within your first year as a monthly or yearly Academy member, you can upgrade to the Lifetime Access Pass at the end of each subscription period. We'll deduct the amount you've paid so far from the one-time payment for your Lifetime Access Pass.
Simply contact our office inside the Academy, and we'll set you up. This way, you make a fully-informed decision and don't have to take any financial risks.
One-time payment: 7,900€
All Member Bonuses are Included
As with all the courses and classes, you'll get full access to all the valuable member bonuses that come with the monthly and yearly membership! It's the all-inclusive package!
Your data is secure and protected.
