When I was a high school student, I started composing orchestral and electronic music, dreaming to one day write for Film, TV, & Video Games. There were no online guides, school courses, YouTube tutorials, or composers that I could ask for advice. I was completely on my own. Now 10 years later – with two music degrees (BM, MFA), dozens of composer credits for Film, TV, & Video Games, wisdom & experience from working with top industry professionals (Garry Schyman, Penka Kouneva, Joel Goodman, The Los Angeles Philharmonic, Chicago Symphony Orchestra, etc.) – it's time for me to give back to the next generation of composers and share my secrets. In my course FILM, TV, & VIDEO GAME MUSIC COMPOSITION + PRODUCTION, I share 10 years of hard-won industry experience and knowledge condensed into one polished course. Every course topic has been carefully pruned to reduce the time investment and maximize your results.
