Film Scoring Course Complete

Well folks, I’ve finished my BerkleeMusic Flim Scoring course. It’s left me feeling a little flat and disappointed.

Well folks, I’ve finished my BerkleeMusic Flim Scoring course. It’s left me feeling a little flat and disappointed. I had hoped to go into some detail on musical textures, but in the end spent most of my time with technical minutae. It didn’t help that the course explanations for using my Logic software were very poor, well below the usual BerkleeMusic standards. Moreover, it seemed like a lot of the course was not well edited, with quite a few assignments being poorly worded (needing frequent tutor updates) and one the major video files was faulty (I really didn’t enjoy wasting two weeks with that one!).

I will do more courses from BerkleeMusic, but I have serious reservations about signing up for any more Film Scoring courses. It’s a shame because several times friends have suggested that my music could be suited to film work. Maybe I was lucky with the other Berklee courses I’ve done, since they were so very good.

Oh and there are copyright issues with posting the assignments, since the video is either Berklee property or under permission from studios. So, unfortunately I can’t post the movie files. However, when I update the sound clips page in a month or so, I’ll add some of the scores I wrote. One or two are almost interesting.

Fernando,

Always frustrating to finish not feeling like it was valuable, but don’t undersell yourself. I’d still love to hear some of your music, man!
