Whether you're an experienced composer or someone who's just starting out on your journey, if you listen carefully you'll notice that the world of film music has its own language and conventions.

There are a set number of composition styles or cliches that almost all cinematic music falls into. Of course, every project will have its own direction but wouldn't it be nice if there was a place you could turn to get you started no matter what your director is asking for?

Getting Started - The Easy Way

At Cinematic Composing, we analyzed the different styles or cliches and presented them in one easy-to-follow course that gives you the jump-start you need to get going quickly and easily

This course is incredibly helpful and lays out everything you're going to need to compose music for almost any type of cue.

There are 5 main styles or cliches used in film and game music:

Sometimes within each style, there will also be a number of sub-styles. For example, the Action category consists of High Intensity, Action Hero, Action Villain and Action Adventure which are similar in some ways but very different in others.
