How would you recommend practicing for video game scoring?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

So I'm currently going to school for film and video game scoring. I'm wondering if there is an effective way to practice writing music for games besides just writing standalone music?

There are lots of things you can do! 

1) Score to footage of video games. 

2) Create music tiers that will be toggled based on game play. 

3 Create music that can change to different sections based on game play. 

4) Practice creating music that can loop effectively while remaining entertaining. 

5) Put your music into a middleware like FMOD or WWise and learn how to use that audio to make interactive music.

Thanks! I'll definitely give some of these a go!
