"'Trailer Music for Beginners' is my favourite course!"

"Rich explains the outline of trailer music and its beauty of it. As an aspiring trailer music composer, I feel so lucky and grateful to be able to learn about Rich's skills and mindset as a composer. His methods are very concrete, practical, and helpful for effective writing and a healthy mindset, which helps composers deal with self-doubt while composing. Not just that, Rich's enthusiasm for composing trailer music and teaching really inspires me a lot, especially during my hard time composing. For anyone who wants to take this course, I highly recommend it! Not just because Rich's trailer music has had lots of placements, but because he really knows and cares about his teaching and sharing. All the best!

πŸ’πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ Your Award Winning Instructor

I started writing music for movie trailers in 2011. Then in 2017 I started teaching other people how to write music for trailers too.

Writing trailer music can be very daunting. On the one hand you have to write great ideas, often recorded yourself, then produce them to the highest possible standard. All from the comfort of your own studio. Or in my case, front room.

Learning to do this is tough, frustrating and sometimes gets you down. That's why I launched the trailer music course (and it's add-on courses). To help make writing music fro trailers as simple and as straightforward as reading a book

πŸ’¬ What My Students Are Saying...

πŸ’₯ I just landed a Star Wars trailer!!!"

"As a direct result of Rich's courses and endlessly sharing his knowledge I just landed my first Star Wars trailer!!!"

- Espen Haagensli

πŸ”₯ From no trailer experience to HUGE placements!

"I love watching Richard explain his process WHILE he is composing and producing. It has given me some clarity on the things I need to focus on while producing stuff. I like melodies, harmonies and sounds but I often don't know what a track needs. Watching Richard has helped me figure that stuff out."

- Anna Eichenauer, Composer

πŸ”‘ The Courses That Taught Me All The "Secrets"

"I've just been asked to do a 10-track album for a well-known production library. This is literally thanks to Rich's courses helping me make those vital changes to take my music from being being placeable (within ..what 10 weeks of signing up for the TMS??) So...thanks for passing on what you've learned."

- Dave Graham, Composer

πŸ™‹πŸ½β€β™€οΈ Frequently Asked Questions

πŸ’» Do I need to be able to use a DAW?

Yes, you do need to be able to use a DAW so you can follow along with the videos.

πŸ“˜ Do I have to use Logic?

Nope, you can use whichever DAW you please as long as you know how to use it.

🎼 How much music theory do I need to know?

The wonderful thing about this, and all of my courses is that I try to steer clear of getting too deep into theory. You will be at an advantage if you know how to harmonise the major/minor scales but aside from that you won't need any theory.

πŸŽ› Do I have to know how to mix and master too?

I am so blessed to have had the amazing mixing and mastering engineer Toby Mason produce an hour-long masterclass in Trailer Music mixing and mastering. He shows you how to mix and master your music to a Hollywood standard within the course.

🀝 Can you guarantee I will get a placement?

Of course not! What I can say is that of all the composers and producers who have taken this course, the ones who are getting work as trailer music composers are the ones who put the hours into their work. They also happen to be super nice people (industry secret there)
