THE MUSIC INTERVAL THEORY ACADEMY
Get Rid Of Your Musical Frustration Once And For All!
After helping music creators reach their goals for over 7 years, we realized that most of them usually find themselves in (at least) one of the following situations!
The music you write sounds generic and boring. You have a desire to break out of your cage but don't know how.
Music always was one of your biggest passions, but you never got into it because life happened. You're now looking for best practices in composition and orchestration and how to learn all of that most efficiently.
Finishing a musical piece literally takes you forever! You don't follow any process, and you have to rely on luck. Hence, you feel insecure and stressed out.
You work really hard to get more sophisticated results but make only little to no progress. You know there has to be a more efficient way to compose and orchestrate great music but haven't found that yet.
You actually do well but want to learn new techniques and devices not covered by conventional music theory or courses. You are interested in staying on the pulse and want to know what works most efficiently.
That's why we've created the Access Pass
Get A Musical Life You Can Be Proud Of
Music and music composition is a very personal thing. It's almost an extension of your inner self, and for that reason, we want you to feel confident about your decision-making and the art you create!
We help you remove all the uncertainty and the guessing from your process of creating beautiful music. You probably feel sometimes like you were trapped in a cage, but as the author, YOU should be in total control. And you should be free!
What if you could turn your mind into an infinite pool of musical ideas? You simply had to pick and choose emotionally! That would be brilliant, right? Well, here's some good news for you, that's what we teach!
We offer clearly-structured materials (live and recorded) that help you turn into the most efficient composer you can be! It's a simple 3-step process that lets you move very quickly from the initial idea to the finished composition: The Gathering, the Sketching, and the Developing! Learn more about that inside the Academy; it's all based on your unique taste and emotional decision-making!
As composers, we spend most of our time alone in dark studio places. Actually, being isolated for too long can bring up some serious health problems, just like sleep problems or even depression. That's why we offer interactive monthly community meetings and lots of live online events. We want you to stay connected and healthy. Get yourself a musical life that you can be proud of - we help you grow!

The Composition Course (100 Coins per lesson)
On top of the ever-growing content, you'll even get lessons from the Composition Course using the Coins system.
As a member, you'll get 50 Coins transferred to your MITA account on every 1st day of a month. So, even if you can't log in for some time because life happens, you keep collecting Coins so you can move faster when the time is right. Your Access Pass fee is an investment, not an expense.
And if you want to move faster through the Composition Course, you can purchase additional Coins (10 Coins = 10 EUR). The Coins system really gives you the most flexibility to line up your MITA studies with your personal life situation.
For your information: According to our statistics, most members take one lesson each month. They spend the time in-between the classes to apply and solidify the concepts/theories they've learned. That's about the sweet spot to get great results most efficiently. However, you set the pace, and that's why the Coins system exists.

Listen to what others say about us:
Since starting my M.I.T.A. training, I no longer have a fear of writing music. I do a lot of sessions as a producer with various artists and find myself finishing songs within 3-4 hours. Now I really enjoy writing music every day. This is musical freedom!
M.I.T.A. gives me the tools and a bigger palette of compositional techniques that I can apply to any genre of music. I am able to understand the necessary building blocks required to create a piece of music. It's like learning and perfecting a new language.
Music Interval Theory Academy has provided me with some unique and valuable compositional tools and 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.
M.I.T.A. is much more than a music theory course. It is deeply practical, and the tools, examples, workflow, and coaching have transformed my creative process, how I think about music and, of course, my results. I am very happy to be a part of the M.I.T.A. family.
Before M.I.T.A., my writing was very predictable, staying safe within the diatonic/ modal world which worked for me up to a point. But I knew my composition skills were lacking something that I couldn’t grasp by myself. I am looking forward to the M.I.T.A. journey on which I’m so fortunate to be a part of.
M.I.T.A. removes the confines of traditional Diatonic thinking thus freeing up the creative path which allows me to write without judgment and explore unique musical ideas in both, composition and orchestration. M.I.T.A. has also given me the confidence to compose in any style by opening up my ear to the key elements within a piece of music.
M.I.T.A. combines the best of two worlds, the Diatonic System and the world of intervals. But you don’t have to throw away anything that you know and use every day! You are in total control of how much spice you want to add to your composition. This is simply the best method out there!
M.I.T.A. has been a game-changer in the way I work. I’m able to use the tools that I’ve learned on a daily basis in compositions that have been used in commercials, trailers, television and feature films. With tight deadlines, I always feel like I have a competitive edge over other writers thanks to M.I.T.A.!
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! From now on, the Matrix of Modes is one of the essential tools for me to pick colors before I start composing.
M.I.T.A. expands common music theory into a deep understanding of the notes themselves and the relationship between them. A new and revolutionary tool that allows us to see music in a different way. If you are a composer, musician or orchestrator, I highly recommend you look more into M.I.T.A.!
M.I.T.A. is a real gem to me. It is a marvelous collection of well thought and developed techniques that instantly take your mind into another way of thinking musically. In simple words, M.I.T.A. is the most efficient music generator and I use it on a daily basis!
In just a single week, M.I.T.A. expanded my compositional knowledge beyond what I learned at my own tertiary institution- and continues to do so! It is such a positive and unique way of writing and building musical ideas, and the best part - you can learn from anywhere in the world, at your own pace.

Our promise to you!
Hopefully, we’ve answered most of your questions already, but it’s totally ok if you are looking for more information. Maybe some of these Q&As can help you.
I've read about the Coins System. Do I need to purchase additional Coins next to the Access Pass?
No! You are not obliged to purchase any Coins at all.
Most of the content inside the Academy is directly accessible to members. The Coins System only applies to specific content pieces, such as the Composition Course, and ensures that all members can control how much time or money they are willing to invest in developing their skills.
Life happens, and there is no "one size fits it all" solution. That's why we give the power to the members and let them decide individually how much time or money they want to put into developing their skills. Whatever is going on in your life right now (work, family, hobbies, or friends), we allow you to fit your study time into your schedule without wasting money.
Is the Academy right for me and are there any requirements?
If you can't read music notation in the treble clef and the bass clef, then we recommend you start with some decent literature about the basics of harmony theory first.
Our Academy builds on those basics, and being able to read music is highly recommended. Of course, you are still very welcome to join and improve on your music notation reading skills as you proceed through our basic materials.
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!
I know the Diatonic system but do I have to be a musical genius to start this?
If you are a musical genius, that's great! :) But no, you don't have to be one. If you can read music (treble clef & bass clef), then we'll do our best to turn you into a musical genius!
Can I switch between the monthly and yearly Access Pass?
Yes, you may switch between monthly and yearly at the end of each time period. Please contact our office for that and we'll assist you. However, the option to pause/resume an active Access Pass to your liking is not supported.
How often do you release new content to your members and does this content gets archived?
We add new content regularly, usually every 1-2 months. We also respect requests for content from our members! The content inside the Academy is ever-growing and designed to support your personal development as best as possible.
All the content goes into our archive, which all members have access to.
Is the Composition Course included in the Access Pass?
Yes, the Composition Course is part of your Access Pass. All members may unlock new lessons from the Composition Course using our internal Coins System. Please learn more about the advantages and benefits of the Coins System on this page.
Are there any obligations that come with the Access Pass?
You may simply enjoy full access to the content at your own pace. There are no obligations at all.
