In his MasterClass, the self-taught Academy Award winner teaches how he creates sounds from nothing, composes compelling character themes, and scores a movie before ever seeing it. By the end, you’ll have everything you need to tell your story.
Today, premiere education platform MasterClass announced that renowned composer Hans Zimmer will teach a film scoring class. In his first ever online class, Zimmer will teach aspiring filmmakers and musicians how to use music to tell a story.
