This course is completely FREE. To view Level II and Level III, as well as watch more advanced Ableton courses in electronic music production, DJing and synthesis, sign up for a membership at Noiselab. Noiselab is the top online school for electronic musicians.

The purpose of this course is to teach you what a DAW (digital audio workstation) is, why Ableton Live is a unique DAW, the difference between the Session View and Arrangement View, how to work with midi instruments and audio material, and much more.

In this course you'll develop a strong understanding of the program's interface and its many preference settings. Understand how to use Live's browser to quickly sample sounds in your tracks without having to spend time inefficiently searching your computer. We'll also discuss the build blocks of Live - clips. All musical elements in Live are contained in either audio or MIDI clips, so it is very important for us to understand what clips are, how they function, and how they can be used to create full compositions. Clips are the key to us creating and capturing our ideas.

You'll also learn about import settings, clip launch quantization, clip envelopes and follow actions. We'll cover the basics of the drum rack, as well as basic MIDI clip editing, draw mode and automation. Then we'll show you how to use MIDI and audio clips together in numerous ways and the usefulness of working with scenes.

Music Composition 1

Learn how to compose well-written rhythms and melodies

Created by Jonathan Peters - Award-winning Composer

"]

Students: 11984, Price: $49.99

Students: 11984, Price:  Paid

Music Composition 1 is the first course in a series of two courses that teaches how music is put together and how to write your own music. The course is divided into two parts. Part one covers the study of rhythmic composition. Part two covers the study of melodic composition. (Harmony and form are studied in Music Composition 2) 

Course lectures consist mainly of video but also include some text. Each section of the course covers a particular concept (or related concepts). Concepts and compositional techniques are demonstrated throughout the course with real musical examples (pictures and audio samples). 

Besides lectures, each section of the course also contains memory questions, section quiz, listening assignments, and transcription/composition assignments. Memory questions serve to summarize and reinforce key concepts learned, while the quizzes test the students’ knowledge and understanding of the material from each section. Students who take this course will get practice transcribing music (hearing a rhythm or a melody and writing it down). In the composition assignments students will get real life practice using the information and techniques learned in each section to write their own rhythms and melodies. 

Who should take this course? Every student of music should know how to compose! It is a sad but true fact that most modern music teachers and music courses do not include music composition as part of the students’ musical education. In the past it was typical for students of music to be able to compose music. The “complete” musician can play an instrument, has knowledge of music theory AND can also compose! If you want to deepen your understanding of music, learn to write it! 

Course Includes:

  • 190 Diagrams and Audio Samples (to illustrate concepts taught)

  • 125 Memory Questions (to reinforce concepts taught)

  • 90 Transcription and Composition Assignments (to practice the concepts taught)

  • 76 Listening Assignments

  • 21 Quizzes

Orchestral Music Composition & Music Theory for Video Games

Learn the composition, NOT the unnecessary technicalities!

This course does not contain FMOD, WWise, or any other middleware. Game composers do not need to know how to use these softwares. The sound designers or developers of the game will integrate your music for you. The only reason a composer would ever need to know how to use these softwares (and why you see so many articles telling you to "LEARN FMOD") is because you need to understand the logic and principles behind how game audio actually works. You just need to understand how music is implemented into a game, not actually implement it yourself. Developers just want to make sure you know how, and what they mean when they ask you to compose 'adaptive music for trigger zones', or 'music tags for each loop'. This course will give you all of that knowledge, without the need to learn any additional softwares!

"Familiarity with audio middleware is a useful skill. At the very least, it affords us valuable insight into the process by which our music is incorporated into game projects. In my experience, most development teams prefer to handle their own audio implementation." - Winifred Phillips (God of War, Assassin's Creed, Little Big Planet, et al.)

What will you gain from completing the course

  • Psychological music theory secrets to manipulate players into feeling specific emotions

  • The game composer's job, mindset, and approach to composing for games

  • How the orchestra works, and how to set up a virtual orchestra in your DAW

  • Compositional guidelines for writing melodies, basslines, harmonies, chords, and rhythms

  • How to score for emotion, setting, and mood/atmosphere

  • Game-specific compositions like stingers, main titles, pause menus, multiplayer menus, character music, etc.

  • How to ensure your music is immersive and doesn't become distracting at any point

  • How adaptive music works, and which audio-integration techniques game developers may ask you to compose for

  • How to compose for various genres of video game, including Linear, Non-Linear, and Interactive

  • Essential techniques to mix and master orchestral music, and get your music sounding balanced, wide, and professional

  • Exporting the files, and what audio format game developers are looking for

Additional Content:

  • Various downloadable PDFs and links to additional reading/study

  • Projects throughout so that I can see your progress, and offer feedback on your work

  • Additional lecture hidden into the course wrap-up

  • An ENTIRE section dedicated to in-depth mixing techniques, taken from my EDM course to give you all the tools you need to achieve a modern, wide, and full sound - it's almost as if you're getting two courses for the price of one!

I share everything I know with you

Everything I teach you in this course has taken me years to learn. You're gaining 10+ years of game music composition knowledge in one complete course.

The game industry is growing astronomically each year. It's going to need some talented composers to provide music for every new game!

What's in it for me?

Honestly, the gratification of seeing students succeed and learn. I am very passionate about teaching, and I truly believe that we should all be helping each other grow as composers and music producers. Musicians are extremely tight-lipped, and secretive about their techniques. I simply don't understand this. Which is why I am sharing this course with you to teach you the secrets behind why some game scores are so emotionally powerful, and why others just fall flat.

Requirements:

  1. You will need to have a DAW (FL Studio, Ableton, GarageBand) and an ability to use the software to practice the techniques I teach you.

  2. You will also need to have a very basic understanding of music theory. Throughout the course, I am talking about notes, chords, minor, and major. I have tried to simplify everything as best as I can, but you will need this basic theory to be able to understand the concepts!

So if you're ready to learn professional game music composition, music theory secrets, mixing, and mastering, buy the course and take your skills to the next level. There is a 30-day money back guarantee, so if you dislike the course (or me), you can receive a full refund. There really is nothing to lose!

You want to hear their war stories, understand their lifestyle choices, witness their work habits, study their rhythms, and most of all...learn how they do it so you can do it too.

I'm not here to blow smoke. I'm nothing special. In fact, although I'm an "award-winning composer" (do Webby's even count?) with hundreds of credits across virtually every media known to man – films, television, video games, podcasts, audio dramas, advertisements, trailers, corporate videos, animation, musicals, YouTube series, graphic novels, & a motion comic...my music has even been performed in concert halls and played on repeat for a decade inside the National Museums Liverpool! – you've never heard of me. Why? Because I'm an Everyday Composer. I'm not famous, but I support my family doing what I love every day and inspiring millions of listeners...even if they never know my name.

Chances are, you've heard my music on...

  • Horror music on the #1 Fiction podcast Dark Dice, starring Jeff Goldblum

  • Playful 16-bit music on Monster Sanctuary

  • Emotional music on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars

  • Epic orchestral music on ad campaigns for FOX, NBC, & CBS networks

  • Video game music on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation, Xbox, Steam, & mobile

With that out of the way....

Welcome to my course What No One Taught Me as a Film, TV, & Game Music Composer! Back in 2016, this was my first experience publishing a course on Udemy and it quickly became a Best-Selling course. Don't take my word for it – read the reviews for yourself...

  • When I first ordered this course, I honestly thought I was going to get a lot of the same things I knew about composition work...What Steven did here blows my expectations out of the water. He gives a lot of advanced music theory techniques, as well as detailed help on how to use your DAW, and he keeps you on your toes with some of these quizzes. Especially after you get half way through the course. I don't regret the money I paid for this course at all, and I'm glad that I have this course to reference when I'm in a bit of a pickle with my own goals. –Monish C.

  • Absolutely phenomenal course! All the lectures go into great depth on the lesson topic and explain it clearly. Thanks for the awesome course Steven! –Kenan B.

  • This course seems to be exactly what I’m looking for. Steven is taking every facet of the craft and business of modern composing into account and teaching at the perfect pace - the videos are not too long, but are jam packed with great info. – Andrew C.

In this updated 2021 version, I’ve removed content that is no longer relevant and have added hours of bonus content to showcase my entire comprehensive library of teaching over the last 5 years, including

  • How to Train for Professional Composing Speed

  • How to Build DAW Templates

  • How to Create a Realistic Sampled Orchestra

  • How to Earn First Dollars & Grow a Music Business

  • Music Composer Lifestyle

  • Interviews with Industry Pros

  • Public Interviews with Steven about His Music Career

  • Selected Live Composing Show Streams

  • Student Coaching Calls with Steven

  • Level Up Live with Coaching Students

  • How to Compose in the Style of Famous Composers

  • Nerdy Music Technology

  • Case Studies on How I Composed for Projects

  • MINI-COURSE: Music Composer's Guide to Finding Work Online ($297 value!)

The bulk of the core content that originally made this course so successful is still here and will teach you all the fundamentals you need to compose & produce music for Film, TV, & Video Games (and surely other types of media too). The only prerequisite for this course is that you have access to a Mac or PC. We will be using notation software and a Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) to write music on a computer, but don’t worry if you don’t have any music software yet. There are multiple free options available and we’ll cover those as needed throughout the course.

I look forward to connecting with you inside. Talk to you soon.

Music Composition 2

Harmony and Compositional Form

Created by Jonathan Peters - Award-winning Composer

"]

Students: 8017, Price: $49.99

Students: 8017, Price:  Paid

Music Composition 2 is the second course in a series of two courses that teaches how music is put together and how to write your own music. The course is divided into two parts. Part one covers the study of harmonic composition. Part two covers the study of compositional form. (Rhythmic and melodic composition were studied in Music Composition 1. It is highly recommended that you take Music Composition 1 before taking this course.) 

Course lectures consist of both video and text. Each section of the course covers a particular concept (or related concepts). Concepts and compositional techniques are demonstrated throughout the course with real musical examples (pictures and audio samples). 

Besides lectures, each section of the course also contains memory questions, section quiz, listening assignments, and composition assignments. Memory questions serve to summarize and reinforce key concepts learned, while the quizzes tests the students’ knowledge and understanding of the material from each section. Students who take this course will get practice notating music with music notation software. In the composition assignments students will get real life practice using the information and techniques learned in each section to write and develop their own harmonic progressions. By the end of the course students will have composed a number of entire pieces in various compositional forms. 

Who should take this course? Every student of music should know how to compose! It is a sad but true fact that most modern music teachers and music courses do not include music composition as part of the students’ musical education. In the past it was typical for students of music to be able to compose music. The “complete” musician can play an instrument, has knowledge of music theory AND can also compose! If you want to deepen your understanding of music, learn to write it!

Music Composition with the Piano: Ultimate Keyboard Theory

Students: 4916, Price: $49.99

Students: 4916, Price:  Paid

This music composition course has four core elements:

  1. An extensive introduction to piano technique, theory & arrangement

  2. Fundamental & advanced harmony & music theory at the piano taught & learned in a practical way you can start using immediately. (as opposed to learning how to read, which isn’t as efficient as a learning strategy.)

  3. A look at powerful compositional techniques and strategies to help you generate material and problem solve when you get stuck

  4. Conventions and structures of piano chords, progressions and songwriting, so that you can analyse and grow your knowledge of building songs & tracks.

---

Many composers, producers and songwriters feel restricted by their lack of ability and knowledge of music theory at the piano. Without doubt, one of THE greatest things you can do to supercharge your composing and songwriting abilities is to gain greater technique and experience in modern day harmony at the piano.

The aim of this course is to give you a powerful and extensive compositional vocabulary, from the ground up - right up to advanced music theory, chords & harmony. And it does it all through a practical, hands on experience of theory at the piano, and it’s all accessible without having to read any music.

---

This course was designed for three types of musician, the beginner and intermediate

  • Producer

  • Composer (Film & Games)

  • Songwriter  

For the beginner, this course takes you from literally ground zero into the building blocks of what makes music work, right up to advanced harmony - without skipping a beat. You’ll learn to write a wealth of different material at the piano and start your composing journey off right with a powerful skillset at the piano.

For the intermediate composers, producers and songwriters who are already serious about their craft but feel restricted by never really getting their head around piano & theory - this course covers almost everything you need to know. It’s built from thousands of hours (literally) of experience in private teaching with composers, producers & songwriters with a highly experienced teacher. For those of you who feel your writing ability is held back by your piano, arranging, compositional strategy & harmonic knowledge this course is completely designed for you.

And even if you’re basically semi-pro, but think your piano technique, voicings and harmonic knowledge are missing a trick, I still know the course will be of value to you. We cover extended Jazz Harmony, thematic writing, non-diatonic chord relationships and more.

---

At the end of this course not only are you going to feel more strong and fluent as a writer, you’re going to be able to solve critical problems on the fly whilst composing; things like:

  • ‘Where do I start? How do I generate material?’

  • ‘I have a chord progression, how do I make it more interesting?’

  • ‘How can I make my chords sound more sophisticated?’

  • ‘I have a chord progression, but I don’t know where to take it next’

  • ‘What’s the musical science behind why that sounds like it does

  • ‘I have chords, how do I add a bass line?’

  • ‘I have a melody, how do I add chords?’

  • ‘I have chords, how do I add a melody?’

  • ‘I have a bass line, how do I add chords?’

  • ‘My melodies sound a little dull, how can I make them more interesting?’

  • ‘If my chords are going to stay the same, how can I make them sound different or more inspiring for the next section?’

---

At the end of this course, you’re going to be able to:

  • Express yourself and your ideas fluently

  • Know how to compose well & use extended music theory without having to involve yourself in reading music but by understanding simple patterns at the piano.

  • Unleash your writing with tools to unblock the writing process and generate material with ease

  • Be able to write anything from classical music, to jazz music to mainstream music - because the fundamental building blocks of harmony are largely the same.

  • Build interesting chord progressions and choose from hundreds of other options when something doesn’t sound quite right

  • Alleviate a lot of writer's block!  

  • Have specific principles, techniques and formulas for making music work at your fingertips

  • Teach others the fundamentals of music theory and composition and keep teaching yourself so that you can learn and master piano more and more.

This course contains many piano tutorials on piano scales, piano chords, exercises and is the perfect way to learn piano online.

---

More of the elements we cover:

  • How to write a song

  • How to compose music

  • How to improvise

  • All the most common piano chords and how to create them instantly

  • How to play jazz chords on the piano

  • The most common chord progressions and how to manipulate them into your songs

  • How to write music compositions for film or games

  • How to write themes for characters in films or musicals

  • The fundamentals of musical composition

  • How to compose piano music

  • How to play keyboard scales

  • What chords sound good together

  • How to modulate between different keys

  • How to create different feelings with literally hundreds of different scales (I’m not talking about different root notes here with just minor, major, blues etc - this is a whole other level of scales you’ve probably never used.)

  • How to transpose between different keys and transpose the songs you love into the right key for you or someone else to sing to

  • How to accompany singers

  • Many different accompanimental patterns to suit different circumstances

  • How to analyze music

  • How to read chord symbols

  • How to find the key of a song

  • Why the favourite sounds of your fav artists are so

  • How to write effective melodies that are really interesting

  • How to structure your compositions well with harmony

  • How to voice and arrange and play your chords in interesting ways

  • How to write bass lines

  • How to write effective voice leading with 3 or 4 parts for orchestral string writing

  • How to create pretty much any chord from scratch, including: major, minor, diminished, augmented, suspension, major 7th, minor 7th, dominant 7th, diminished 7th, 9th chords, 11th chords & 13th chords.

  • How to reharmonize and make your progressions rhythmically interesting

  • The power of tension and resolution in music writing

This course has A TON of theory in it. But the goal is not to turn you into a theory monster who composes theoretical music. The goal of this course is to give you fluency and OPTIONS so you can choose who you want to be and how you want to write, and express yourself in your own unique way.

Above all, you should know that I obsess about teaching effectively - there’s no rambling, tangents, wasted space or filler. It’s not 30 hours (yet) because I’ve made every video super condensed and to the point, whilst trying not to rush. I also care deeply about and teach you how to think & learn music effectively.

I hope to see you on the inside
