If you practice – you can achieve anything. In this course I introduce you into cinematic composition, and help you understand the very principal of it.Try to stay consistent with your work, follow the instructions, yet stay creative. I would recommend using your own melody, instead of copying the one from the videos. However, you definitely want to be consistent with the shown structure. Make sure you complete all the homework given in the video, before submitting your final project. It will help you to complete your first cinematic composition successfully :)If you already have a DAW and a particular orchestral library, this course is still a good match for you, because I mostly cover the structure of a cinematic composition without focusing on a specific library or software. The library I use in this course is just an example and advice for the beginners. You can even make music with a tablet! It is totally up to you.Enjoy!
