Eight-Week Class | Creating Music for Video Games

Prerequisites: Basic understanding of melody and chords

Do you love the music in contemporary games or hate it and think you could make it better? This course is for composers, musicians or anyone who loves music and wants to learn how to create music specifically for video games. You’ll learn from an instructor who knows as much about music in games as he does about video games themselves! Dr. Zachary Daniels is a professional musician, composer and former professional gamer.

In addition to an historic and contemporary overview of music in video games, this course also teaches compositional techniques related to games, such as looping tracks, musical triggers and sounds for planned encounters. Open Studio* time is included with registration.

*Open Studio allows currently enrolled students to work on their projects in Oklahoma Contemporary’s studios outside of class meetings. Times vary weekly and may be booked two weeks in advance. See Open Studio Times here.
