• Film Music

    This course combines the history of film music in general with the purpose of gaining an understanding of the role of music in a film, observing various approaches to how music is used in a film, and examining how music interacts with other elements in the soundtrack (dialogue, sound effects) that accompany the visual aspect of the film to create a compelling work of art. Students will learn how music affects how we perceive a moving picture, and will be able to watch movies with a new understanding of how the picture and soundtrack combine. By the time you finish the class, you will have a greater appreciation for what goes into making a motion picture!
