I work for Faber Music Media, one of the leading providers of music and composers for film, television, advertising and computer games. 

I wanted to let you know about Faber Music Media’s fantastic new course, aimed at media composers and focusing on music for advertising. This unique course offers some extraordinarily exciting opportunities: to learn techniques and tricks of the trade from experienced practitioners; to learn about the business end of the profession; to network and make new contacts; and above all to come away from the course with a piece of work that can form the basis of, or add to, the all-important showreel. 

Course leader Chris Smith (Final Touch Productions) is one of the UK’s leading composers and producers of media music. He has worked on hundreds of campaigns for brands ranging from Becks and Budweiser to Durex and Tropicana. High profile speakers from across the industry will include acclaimed composer Jonathan Goldstein, top agent/producer Claire Baughan (Blaze Music) and leading figures from the creative and production sectors of the advertising industry.

Each week, course participants will be given a TV commercial to score to brief and to a deadline mirroring the reality of the professional world. Central to the course will be an intensive writing day during which Chris Smith and other professionals will provide one-to-one tuition, and the course will conclude with a final appraisal session, at which students will be given detailed feedback by a panel of industry professionals. 

The unique course is aimed at composers proficient at using one of the main software composition programs (Logic, Cubase, Pro Tools etc.) and from all musical backgrounds. Both for composers who aspire to write for audio-visual media, or are already doing so and simply want to get more experience and make new contacts.
