And the best part is that you do not only get lots of great guidelines and tips, but also step-by-step instructions and live examples on all the aspects that goes into composing cinematic music.

Arn even creates a track from scratch throughout this course, starting from a very simple idea, and developing it into a full epic orchestration of cinematic music.”
