Basic "About Me:" I was a music and actuarial science double major, dropped the music major, and am now working as an actuarial educator full-time. I'd like to get back to composing. The biggest project that I did when I was a music major was compose a clarinet concerto where each movement portrayed a style from different musical periods (classical/Mozartian, romantic, and 20th century serialism).
I did my first voice-leading exercise in about three years today, and I realized that my counterpoint writing is very dull. I'm not as good as I used to be at it anymore, unfortunately.
Sure, I know all of the rules of Renaissance counterpoint, but I'm interested in something that is more... interesting, maybe Baroque counterpoint or counterpoint as used in film scoring.
Are there any resources that are available to learn this stuff (besides the Online Berklee courses, which are quite expensive)?
