Music for Film, Games and TV

Class Description

This intensive will be held online for summer 2020. Through a mix of synchronous and asynchronous learning, we are structuring our intensives to be creative, fun, and full of activities. If you have any questions about how we are moving to remote learning, please call or email with any questions.

Music for Film, Games and TV affords students an exciting opportunity to write their own soundtracks to Hollywood blockbusters, epic video games and favorite TV shows. In a creative and supportive environment, students will gain fundamental skills, with particular emphasis on composing for media; as well as learn the ins-and-outs of digital audio production, including a full introduction to Apple’s Logic Pro X. The camp begins with an overview of how music interacts with media and the basics of writing and composing.  Then, we’ll look at “the dramatic arc” from a composer’s point of view as well as a detailed explanation of Logic’s powerful tools like MIDI editing, audio recording, electronic music production, building beats, mixing, virtual instruments, synthesizers, and how to produce professional sounding music.

Who Should Enroll: Students do not need to have prior experience although it is helpful to have some basic ability recording audio or MIDI in Apple’s Garageband and/or Logic. Both beginner and more-experienced students welcome.
