You are just seconds away from getting access to the essential materials (courses, master classes, interviews, live sessions, and much more) that will help you transform into the most creative composer/musician/orchestrator you can be!

Does this sound familiar to you?

You are tired and fed up with the conventional approach to music theory and composition.

You are frustrated because you can’t come up with new and fresh musical ideas!

You want to develop your own voice but you end up sounding exactly like everybody else!

You know that there’s more out there but you can’t unlock these doors!


Leave the Diatonic cage whenever you want! YOU are the author, YOU are in charge, YOU should be in total control of your compositions! And you should be free!

Become a faster and more efficient composer! We teach a 3-step process that enables you to move very quickly from the initial idea to a finished composition.

Tap into the Creative Pool! Learn how to become a great receiver of creativity and destroy writer’s block! Stop waiting for inspiration and focus on results instead!

Find your own musical voice! M.I.T.A. helps you to define your own voice in music and composition. Stop copying other composers (this is a free advertisement for them anyway) and focus on YOUR voice instead!

Learn at your own pace! Depending on the time you can dedicate to your education, you decide how quickly you go through our courses and materials. If you have 30 minutes per week (or more), you’ll start seeing results!

Understand musical storytelling! In almost all cases, you’ll get hired to support and translate a given storyline into music. Our Academy gives you all the tools and vocabulary to express your emotions freely!

What makes M.I.T.A. special?

We don’t compete with traditional educational institutions as we don’t teach conventional music theory. Our approach is 100% unique, not found anywhere else!

Over many years, we’ve created and constantly tested a complete system based on Interval Theory which is fully compatible with the Diatonic system.

Whatever you know already about music theory and composition is great! You don’t have to unlearn anything! Our approach connects smoothly to the Diatonic system!

Everything is centered purely around practicality based on more than 4 decades of combined experience as working composers in the industry !

M.I.T.A. has also given me the confidence and tools to compose in any style by opening up my ear to the key elements within a piece of music making analysis very straightforward and enjoyable.”

Gareth Prosser, Composer, Orchestrator, Arranger and Member of the Blue Man Group
