Course summary

Professional Media Composition is for composers who want to earn a living writing music for media. It delivers the creative, technical and business skills to help you succeed. Taught exclusively by working professionals, the course is embedded in the industry so students can be sure they are learning exactly what it takes to make a living right now. The course introduces you to a wide range of opportunities, everything from commercials to production music, industrial video to animation and of course, but not exclusively, film and games scoring. On this course we are pleased to welcome musicians from a contemporary electronic background as well as those who are classically trained. There is no music theory requirement for this course, just talent. Ability to use a DAW and familiarity with music technology is important however.
