Learn to write music in the style of big budget Hollywood films and TV programs. Music Composition for Film and TV begins with an overview of important considerations for composing for film and TV, including how to balance music and dialogue, how to influence the audience’s emotional response, and how to create music that elicits a location or time period. Each week, the course will focus on a different genre of music for film and TV—themes such as romance, sadness/sorrow, chase, heroic action, action adventure, horror, suspense, magic, fantasy, and comedy. The course will analyze each genre in terms of melody, harmony, counterpoint, tempo, rhythm, and orchestration, providing you with a “recipe book” for writing for film and TV. The analyses form a collection of music templates that you will then apply towards writing a piece of music for each genre. The final week of the course traces the logistical path of a musical idea from initial conception to final recording, including composition, orchestration, and recording.
