Brief course description
In this course, we will learn the essential techniques used in writing music for film. Through a series of analysis’ of well-known film scenes from your favorite movies we will learn what makes a great cue, and then apply those techniques by writing our own. I’ll be showing you some of my own projects for film and television throughout the class, and walk you through my process when composing music for a film project.
By the end of this course, students will understand the tools, lingo, and techniques used in the film composing world and will be ready to dive in to their own projects. I’ll walk you through how to get started on your first project by using freely available movies that need a score.
Throughout my career, I’ve worked with major American orchestras, film studios, and video game designers. I’m also a PhD in music composition and a university professor (of music composition).
