The Composer has just completed the Rhythm Engineering course through The Schillinger Society and has been awarded the same coveted "Certificate of Proficiency" as originally presented by Joseph Schillinger himself to his own students. The Schillinger System is a mathmatical based system of music composition applicable to any style of composition. Mr. Simpson has now begun "Book II: The Theory of Pitch Scales"(see pic below letter)
According to Wikipedia, The Schillinger System of Musical Composition, named after Joseph Schillinger, is a method of musical composition based on mathematical processes. It comprises theories of rhythm, harmony, melody, counterpoint, form, and semantics (emotional meaning, as in movie music).
It offers a systematic and non-genre specific approach to music analysis and composition, a descriptive rather than prescriptive grammar of music. The Schillinger System might have served as a road map for many later developments in music theory and composition. Instead, it languished in relative obscurity.
Schillinger was a professor at The New School in New York City and taught such celebrated composers as George Gershwin, Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, and a host of Hollywood and Broadway composers. His books were published after his death and his system enjoys a cult following, although it is still considered controversial in traditional circles. There are a limited number of Certified Schillinger Teachers of this system in the world.
