THE MUSIC INTERVAL THEORY ACADEMY
Get Rid Of Your Musical Frustration Once And For All!
Does this sound familiar to you?
Are you a composer who is tired and fed up with the conventional approach to music theory and composition? Are you tired of reading abstract books without getting to results?
Are you frustrated because you can’t come up with new and fresh musical ideas? Does your compositions sound like everything else out there without any unique selling point?
Do you want to develop your own musical voice but you end up running into dead ends all the time? You know that there's more out there but you can’t unlock these doors!
That's why we've created the Membership
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 that you want to protect.
For that reason, we want you to feel confident about your decision-making and the art you create! It's a part of you, and you should feel great about it.
So, let's remove all the uncertainty and the guessing from your process of creating something beautiful. Don't stay trapped in your cage! YOU are the author, YOU are in charge, YOU should be in total control. And you should be free!
In the music industry, everybody has to deal with tight deadlines, pressure, and the lack of having creative and innovative musical ideas on an on-going basis!
Imagine 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) to turn you 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. And it's all based on your unique taste and emotional decision-making!
Most of the composers around the world are locked in dark studio places and work on their own. 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!
Here's what you get in the Membership
Monthly Live Online Session
We invite all members to take part in our live sessions.
Joining is very simple - everything works within your browser, or you can use the free Zoom client. The live sessions reach from monthly teaching calls to member meetings.
And even if you can't attend a session, all materials, such as the video presentation, the PDF and all audio files become available in our extensive video archive.
Application Courses & Spotlight Courses
You get access to a variety of courses that will help you implement the magic of Interval Theory into your writing. The Basic Course is the perfect start to transition from the Diatonic approach to horizontal thinking.
We also offer a lot of spotlight courses like "The Application of Negative Harmony" or "The Use of Polytonality". All is broken up into small steps and explained in an easy-to-follow way so that you can implement the concepts right away!
You even find applications for instruments such as the Ukulele or the Guitar, which also help you develop better performance skills.
Master Classes & Interviews
You get access to the knowledge of industry experts. May it be the music business, how to brand yourself, or legal questions such as co-authorship and royalties from streaming, our Master Classes give you great insight.
All of these Master Classes and Interviews prepare you to succeed as a composer/musician and stay available forever to all members in the video archive.
Our ebooks are an excellent resource for knowledge and complement the courses about the application. All PDFs and MP3s are fully downloadable so that you can take them with you and read anywhere.
We even give a complete video explanation of all concepts explained in the books to ensure that you get the full picture. Some of the subjects that we cover are "Negative Harmony", or "The Overtone Series".
Our Academy has teamed up with almost all of the big players in the sample library and software development. All members are entitled to receive educational discounts from our official partners (such as Spitfire Audio, Steinberg, Orchestral Tools, Vienna Symphonic Library, and many others).
Listen to what others say about us:
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. 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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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. 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. 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.!
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!

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.
Is the Membership right for me and are there any requirements?
If you cannot read music in the treble clef and the bass clef, then we don't recommend you take this membership. Instead, get some literature about the basics of harmony theory and how to read/write notes.
Our Academy builds on those basics, and being able to read music is highly recommended.
Do you want to become a more rounded composer? Are you interested in boosting your writing skills and exploring new territories with Interval Theory? If so, this membership is perfect 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 Membership?
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 Membership 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 every month (in form of live online sessions, courses, interviews, etc.) and we also respect requests for content from our members! Our content 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. If you cannot attend a live event, don't worry, you can still watch these events later in the video archive. All remains available to you.
Is the Composition Course included in the Membership?
The Composition Course is NOT included in the Membership.
The Membership focuses on the application and your personal training/development. The Composition Course and the Membership are designed to complement each other. There's not a huge overlap in materials as the goals are set differently.
For more information about the Composition Course, please visit this dedicated page!
Are there any obligations that come with the Membership?
Starting your Membership does not come with any obligations! You may simply enjoy full access to the Member's area without taking the Composition Course or private lessons. This remains 100% your decision and we support you in what is best for you!
The lessons of the Composition Course are not included in the Membership. The Membership consists of unique materials that are organized in smaller "Spotlight Courses" (e.g. 'Negative Harmony' or 'Root Cycles' etc.) that focus on the application and putting theory into action!
The Membership is designed to help you transform into the most creative and most original version of yourself! This transformation won't happen over night, but you will start seeing results much quicker than you think.
