The Art of the Film Score

Bring out the popcorn and enjoy learning about the development of the film score for motion pictures.

Take a musical journey from the film score’s inception to the first cinematic blockbusters to the Golden Age of Hollywood to the present day. Film clips will be shown to illustrate how the film score supports the aesthetic and narrative elements of the story.  Immerse yourself in the musical styles of great film composers from Max Steiner’s groundbreaking 1933 score for King Kong to Ennio Morricone’s music for the 1960s Spaghetti Westerns to Hans Zimmer’s music for Inception. No previous musical experience is necessary to enjoy this class.
