Schillinger System of Musical Composition

Joseph Schillinger developed the Schillinger System of Musical Composition to answer a need. In the mid 20th century,  music was performed live on radio, live in theater and live at the movies. Music needed to be written fast and performed immediately. The Schillinger  System of  Music Composition solved these issues.

Joseph Schillinger

Joseph Schillinger was a man before his time. He was a musician, a scholar, and an innovator. His life was a mere 47 years but the body of work he completed was enough to fill three lifetimes. He developed the Schillinger System of Musical composition.

Mrs. Francis Schillinger established the original Schillinger Society. Her purpose of the society was to keep her husbands work alive. She tried to accomplish this by developing a society in his honor.

Schillinger Society 2005

Our research traced  Schillinger’s musical career to his beginnings in Russia. Our exploration led us down paths of lawsuits, family fights, and in the end questions of espionage with the former KGB. A world open to us that was not only interesting but compelling and in the middle of the research we found The Schillinger System of Music composition. Resurrecting this masterpiece would be a monumental task but it had to be done for the next generation of composers.
