Online Class

Fri, Sep 25-Fri Oct 23, 1-3 pm ET, $125*

Having performed on hundreds of film scores and TV productions, Hollywood veteran Andrew Muson brings an insider's perspective to the magic of music in the movies. During the days of silent film, pianos and organs accompanied Moving Pictures in theaters. With the advent of "talkies" and release of The Jazz Singer in 1927, which featured synchronous dialog and singing with a musical score, the film score became an art form. Films are now scored with every conceivable type of music-from symphony orchestras to esoteric, indigenous, electronic sounds, and pop music. The series explores the history, art, and science of film music as seen through the composers' lens, with videos that feature the fabulous film scores from some of the greatest movies ever shown on the big screen. Class will meet weekly.
