We've all been inspired by powerful and emotional orchestral cues. Especially when they are perfectly paired with an unfolding scene on a big screen. They can empower us, bring us to tears and unsettle us.

And as composers, who doesn't want a piece of that action?

But is it really possible to create a cue that brings that same sonic power and emotion when you don't have access to world-class orchestral players playing in beautiful spaces? Is it really possible to produce a track in your DAW that is almost as good as the real thing?  


You Better Believe It!

You Better Believe It!

Cinematic Composing's Orchestral Programming course will unlock the critical elements you need to help you raise the quality and realism of your mock-ups to the next level. And it will begin happening from the very first lesson! This practical and comprehensive course will show you exactly what's needed to produce a track in your own DAW that can match it with the pros.

Frequently Asked Questions

Usually, it takes about one week per module.

Honestly, we have lots of fun and engaging conversations with students who don’t have formal training. Sometimes, when you’ve got a lot of training you can develop complexes or insecurities about what is right or wrong, what you should or shouldn’t do when composing, and so forth.

If you’re one of those with little or no traditional formal training, you’ll still gain loads of practical, useful information and experience in this course. We’d love to have you on board!



You’ll have access to the course materials for life.

You can take as long as you want to complete the course. You can go at your own pace or follow the course’s schedule. Whatever you choose.
