Books on Orchestration, Film Scoring, and Music Theory
Below, I’ve listed quite a few books that I’ve found useful, some of which I continue to use for reference. Most of these are readily available, with hotlinked titles to Amazon pages. With one exception, I have avoided listing any books that are part of applied for-profit courses, as it isn’t my place to make a critical evaluation on such works, or promote them on behalf of their authors.
