Introducing you to the world of music for advertising, focusing specifically on trailer music - perfect for our BA Music Production for Film, TV & Games course.

This session is hosted by  ICMP tutor Gareth Spicer and features Charlotte Hatherley - an acclaimed composer, artist and guitarist who has performed extensively with artists including Ash, Bat For Lashes, KT Tunstall, Birdy and more.

What to expect from the session

Trailer music has become an art form and as composer-producers you will have to work with the client to create a sonic identity for their product. During this live session we will discuss the role music plays in advertising and how we start creating it.

Learn what the fundamental themes you need to understand before you even compose the first note. You will then work with the tutor to deconstruct previously created music from a composition and production point of view. This will showcase production tips and tricks, plugins, compositional techniques and how to spot key moments in the trailer.

At the end of the session, you will be invited to download the session files and produce your own music for the trailer - with an aim to get feedback on your work from an ICMP tutor.

Our next online taster session will take place via Zoom on Thursday 22nd April, 5pm–6.30pm


After you book your place, we'll send you an exclusive Zoom link so you can join us to find out more about this course.
