The Director and Sound

Flexible Timing

Study in Practice



From Beginner to Pro


It is essential for creators of performance to be able to hear the music, understand its influence and communicate the ideas to sound designers. We have seen tons of courses on "Music for Film", but what about Music in Theatre? This course is the answer

Music and sounds are one of the central features of performance, and directors are required to understand the basics of music theory and its application in performance production. The collaboration process of director with composers, music directors, and sound is a creative process, however, still requires professionals. The effective and fruitful collaboration between these parties is a complex mixture of many different techniques, experiences, and individual competencies. 

This course covers topics such as the history of music usage in plays, copyrighted music and sounds in the play, background and “mood music”, music for scene changes, the relationship between the director, composer, and music director.
