2. Analysis describing the techniques behind the assigned excerpt
3. Composition tutorials applying the techniques to original compositions, and
4. Composition exercises comprising abstract scales, chords, and original music
Answers to the exercises for Lessons 1-3 can now be found on the site forums under Lessons 1-3 in the Composition Exercises thread.
