Creating music for film, television, video games, or any other visual medium involves a unique combination of musical expertise and aesthetic sensibility. The Academy of Art University's Music Production & Sound Design for Visual Media program offers training in traditional music as well as instruction in 21st-century production technologies. We offer courses in harmony, arranging, orchestration, scoring, music production techniques, and music editing taught by working professionals.
You'll learn the language of music and how to apply it to the expanding world of visual media, exploring the symbiotic relationship between music and narrative and how music helps tell your story. Students will graduate with a demo reel to take to potential employers. Online students have the advantage of self-paced learning, flexible schedules, fewer class fees, and clear presentation of materials, with the opportunity to review and master each concept before continuing to the next.
