MOOOC Costs & Patreon Support
 
Hi everyone, there are some misunderstandings out there about how this all works, and in truth I should have explained things better. So here is everything boiled down for you. All costs are in United States dollars.


OPEN COURSE REGISTRATION AND ONLINE ATTENDANCE 

No charge for open entrants, and no additional pledges needed from Minim to Brevel Level Patreon supporters.


MATERIALS COSTS

Orchestration Manual: variable whether you buy new, used, or borrow from library.

100 Orchestration Tips: $30 for open entrants, $15 for Semibreve supporters, complementary for Breve to Longa supporters.

Orchestration 101: The String Section: $24.50 for open entrants and Minim to Breve Supporters, discounted for Dotted Breve and Longa Level supporters (tba).
