This class investigates the function of music in film, television and video games. Even before the advent of synchronized sound, Hollywood was hard at work developing music that communicated genre--place, time, and vibe. This session will dive into musical techniques for action, drama, science fiction, romance, horror, and comedy and how they marry with picture. This session picks up from last summer’s “Function of Film Music” sessions but no prior attendance is required!

Presenter: Scott Stewart is the Music Director and Conductor of the Atlanta Youth Wind Symphony. He holds Bachelor of Music Education and Doctor of Music degrees from Indiana University and a Masters Degree in Music Education from the University of Texas at Austin.
