Ah nice! =)

Courses specifically for game scoring would be a cool thing, i dont know if ive heard about anything like that.
But from what i understand the procedure can be kind of different from film scoring, what with ingame triggers to where the music start, etc.

I started trying to write some parts, inspired by a line of fantasy books, but im taking it pretty slow atm since i have a lot of schoolwork, its fun as hell though!

Heh well i think we only have one project during the first quarter of that class, its a lot about the business in general too, but its gonna be fun!

Where did you study composing? Im kinda curious about schools like that to check what i can do next. Im from Sweden though, and i think theres a lot of classical schools and composing schools in Europe, thats the impression ive gotten Tongue

cheers

Thanks a lot for the quick answers! Its just great for me to be able to bounce these thoughts with some people!
I think im gonna stick around my remaining two quarters, but im gonna choose electives thats more into this kind of area.
Ive choosen "chord melody" for example, and "scoring for film and tv"(which i guess is pretty basic). It just feels good to have some kind of direction ^^

again thanks!

Hello everyone, first of all i want to say that this is a great forum and i thank everyone writing in here answering questions for noobs like me, and ofcourse i want to thank Jason to for his music and everything!

Im kinda lost on how to proceed education wise or just generally with my music.

Ive loved game music and filmscores as long as i can remember and im a huge fan of Nobou Uematsu, Koji Kondo, and of course Jason, aswell as numerous film composers etc etc.
I played some piano when i was younger, but then i picked up the guitar when i was 13 years old and im now soon 21. I guess ive played (seriously) for about 3-4 years.
Im currently in Hollywood, CA at Musicians Institute on the guitar program, and about to finish my 2nd quarter.
The problem is as the time goes now im just getting more and more interested in arranging and composing, and less interested in just becoming a virtuoso on guitar. Im must more interested in voice leading, melodized (XD) harmony, contrary motion and etc etc, all of that.
However i feel pretty limited to execute ideas on the guitar compared to the piano for example, especially closed voicings, some are actually impossible to play on the guitar.
So my wonderings are:
Am i wasting my time here at GIT?
Should i just be happy with these 2 quarters i got and move on to focusing on piano more?
Or should i stick around for my other 2 quarters?

I know its impossible for someone to tell ME what to do, i just kinda want to hear what some fellow ppl interested in the same thing, think about this.

Thanks!
