The Film Scoring Tip Collector

$1
per month
Thank you for your support! You will receive about one new exclusive tip or short snippets about writing music for media per week. This will also include business and technical advices much in the style of my Daily Film Scoring Bits on my Website, just a little more comprehensive.

Additionally, you gain instant access to a lot of single posts in the archives about various topics which you can access through a neatly sorted table of contents.

The Knowledge Seeker

$5
per month
Wow, I really appreciate your support! You will get access to about 2 articles per week. This will also include multipart tutorials that cover certain more complex topics about writing music for film in greater detail than the tips. Also, I will try to answer all your questions you might have regarding these articles. Additionally, you will get early access to my latest music as well as score sheets as PDF.

You will gain instant access to the archives containing single posts and comprehensive multi part tutorials, score sheets and recordings, all sorted neatly in a table of contents.

If you support this tier for more than 6 consecutive payment cycles, you are eligible to apply for the regular ORCHESTRA DISCOVERY SESSIONS where we record music of some patrons with a live ensemble!

The Inner Workings of Music

$12
per month
Thank you so much for joining this tier! You are awesome! You will get access to about 3-4 articles per week, including the small tips and the more in depth multi-part tutorials on more complex topics. However, the real benefit from joining this tier is that this will also include extensive composition screencasts and the super detailed composition walkthroughs and detailed articles that span over multiple instalments.

You will gain access to audio stems and midi files of these pieces. You will receive views behind the scenes, join me in composing music as well as explanation of why I do things the way I do them. And of course you get all the benefits from the lower tiers like early access to score sheets.

Additionally, you will gain instant full access to the archives, containing single posts about individual topics, comprehensive tutorials, score sheets, recordings, multitrack downloads, composition screencasts and walkthroughs and all the other things that have been accumulating here since I started it. You can access all these by browsing through a neatly sorted Table of Contents once you sign up.

If you support this tier for more than 3 consecutive payment cycles, you are eligible to apply for the regular ORCHESTRA DISCOVERY SESSIONS where we record music of some patrons with a live ensemble!

About Robin Hoffmann - Composer

Welcome to my Patreon! I'm a composer, arranger and orchestrator. My main field of work is orchestral music, mainly film music but also crossover between different genres.

Over the past fifteen years my music has been recorded with some of the best orchestras in the world, including the LONDON SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA, CITY OF PRAGUE PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA and STAATSKAPELLE WEIMAR.

Besides my work as composer, I try to help up and coming composers on their creative path. I have given masterclasses and private Skype lessons in composition/theory and orchestration for more than five years to over fifty students around the globe, some of which have become prolific composers.

I also posted a "Daily Film Scoring Bit" for more than ten years and got a lot of great feedback from the composer's community on that.

Unfortunately, my work schedule doesn't allow me anymore to teach actively. Also the daily time I need to spend to write the Daily Film Scoring Bits was taking too much out of my work day while I had the feeling that with many topics I was barely scratching the surface.

So this is where Patreon comes into play. With your monthly pledge, starting with as little as 1$, I can dedicate time to writing comprehensive articles about the things that I could not cover in the bits which will be exclusive reads for my patreons. But wait, there's even more! For you, there will be exclusive access to such things as score sheets, audio stems and analyses of my work, composition walkthroughs and screencasts explaining why I do things the way I do. There will also be glimpses into the archive as well as unreleased music that never made it to the light of day. 

The most exciting feature however is that we're having regular ORCHESTRA DISCOVERY SESSIONS, where I invite a handful of patrons to record their music with a professional live ensemble. Currently those are rather small line-ups but with the growth of this Patreon page, I hope to reach full orchestra size with these in the forseeable future!


Thank you for supporting me and my work!

Goals
$870.55 of $2,500 per month
This Patreon page comes with one unique feature for their patrons: the regular ORCHESTRA DISCOVERY SESSIONS.

I use some of the income this page generates to record a professional live ensemble every few months and on every session I invite a handful of my patrons to record their music with them. Also, this gives us the opportunity to try out things with these ensembles and tackle specific questions regarding composition or orchestration. Currently, the ensembles we record are quite small to be affordable.

If however we would reach a monthly pledge of $2500, I would be able to actually book a full orchestra on these sessions. We will gradually increase the line-up of these sessions as the pledges grow (hopefully) but here you can see how far off we are from actually booking a full orchestra.
