Hey guys! The second online course that I just launched through my new online educational site (Forte Composer Academy) is called Film Scoring for Beginners.


This in-depth, 42 lesson/10-hour-long video course course is intended to be a pretty comprehensive introduction to the art, craft, philosophy, business, relationships, process, practice, and problem-solving of film scoring for someone who is fairly new to it, yet is serious about following the film composer career. A big point of emphasis in this material is addressing the scenarios and realities that composers starting out in the indie/low budget/no budget film world will face, and working with other team members who may not be particularly experienced because they are just starting out as well.

THINGS THAT ARE COVERED IN THIS COURSE
  • The Role of Music in Film and the vocabulary of Film Music
  • The Role of the Film Composer
  • The Role of the Director, and how to successfully relate to and communicate with him (and how to communicate with inexperienced directors!)

  • Crafting your Career Goals and Priorities
  • Navigating Existing Job Opportunities
  • Basics about Money, Rights, Royalties, and Contracts
  • How to Analyze the Story of the Film and Break Down its Needs
  • How to Develop the Score (Musical Pre-Production)

  • How to Have a Successful Spotting Session
  • Critical Theory and Tips on Musical Placement
  • How to Create a use a Cue Sheet
  • How to Balance and Schedule your Scoring Workload

  • The Differences Between Scoring for Different Visual Mediums (Features, Docs, Commercials, Etc.)
  • The Distinctive Musical Needs of Different Genres
  • How to Plan a Cue and Score to Picture
  • How to Hit Precise Timing Notes and Use the Tempo Track
