Udemy Learn To Convey Emotion In Film & Game Music For Beginners

Whether you are a songwriter who wants to get started with writing commercial music or a chronic learner who has always wanted to understand how and why music conveys emotion more effectively than anything else, this course offers insights that you'll find very rewarding.

Learn by watching 3 walkthroughs on emotional music cues conveying "urgent", "calm" and "spooky". Watch and listen as the music speaks for itself AND you get step-by-step explanations about how the music examples work. These lessons are learned from my award-winning songwriting, studio production work and academic study in music and compositional theory.

I've always believed that music is one of the most powerful ways to convey emotion and help a group of people "get on the same page." Rhythm, harmony and melody all play a part, but a good composer can elicit specific emotions quickly - in order to do that, you'll need a strong vocabulary in basic music theory and you'll want to know what your ideas "sound" like before you even play a note. This course combines the art and science of this process. Plus, you'll get a full primer on music theory essentials like:

Building major and minor scales by hand
How major, minor and half-diminished chords are built from major and minor scales
