How is the online Smalley Orchestration course different than the live version of the course?

The Smalley Art of Orchestration online course is based on the live course, and much of the content is exactly the same as the live course.

In some areas, including orchestration for brass and strings, because there was no time limitation as there is during the 2-day live course, Scott was able to expand his discussion of the various orchestration concepts and was able to speak in more detail about the concepts.

Also, he was able to use additional examples, especially in the orchestration for brass section, that he often is not able to get to in the live class depending on the amount of time taken up in the live class answering questions.
