What you'll learn in this music production course:

Music composition, production and sound design in the worlds of interactive media, film and game development.

To understand the power of music and sound design for use in interactive media, narrative film, or game development, you must first embrace the concept of telling a story using sound as the medium. To facilitate this gaining familiarity with the fields of filmmaking, storytelling, music and audio production, and, of course, music composition is imperative. Toward that goal, the true concept of the “underscore” must be fully explored and understood.

Designed for those exploring the music field with an interest in becoming a composer, sound designer or content developer, this program will enlighten you to the modern process soundtrack production. And, by learning the various types of content used in production, you’ll gain an understanding of how you can create and/or enhance a powerful experience through the use of sound.

Upon completion of this course, you will have gained a general appreciation and knowledge for the craft of composing music both interactive and noninteractive media. In addition, you will now possess a basic operating and functioning knowledge through exposure to current technology being used for music composition for media – including digital audio stations, computer based music software, and the use of virtual instruments and software plugins.
