Great course but very much a summary. A series of follow up courses going into more detail would be much appreciated.

This is the best foundational course I can find on film scoring. To the point with out any fluff. All generic inspiring information that you can grasp and apply later. Fantastic piece of art.

Have you ever wondered how music adds to your favorite movie, TV program, or video game? This course will demystify the process with examples of how chord structure can evoke a mood or feeling. Using simple melody lines, the instructor builds more complex sound bites while explaining in simple terms how each instrument used contributes to the overall mood. Once you are through with this course, you'll never hear movie music the same!
