The lesson concepts for music production are similar to the building of a visual narrative structure that we teach in all the Smart Films School courses.

We use a proven pedagogical approach that can quickly build confidence and even show you the apps that can be tuned to prevent you from even hitting wrong notes!

The course begins with making mobile music with free apps that can be used for background music tracks for social videos. The course then builds on this foundation to show the pathways to scaling up these projects in Logic Pro X for film scoring. T

The example used in film scoring module started out as simple 8-bar GarageBand sketch on an iPad that was then airdropped into LogicPro X where it could be mixed while viewing the scene - just like they do in Hollywood.

The key in this course to start simple and make each project to build on previous skills. You will find that making original music is fun and you will quickly get results that that please your ears.
