“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. 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 course out there!”

Marc Bercovitz, Award-winning Composer, Arranger and Orchestrator
