Music for the Media.

“Music For The Media Was The Single Best Thing

I Ever Did To Develop My Career As A Composer”


This quote comes from just one of our successful MFTM graduates, Tony Patterson, founder and composer at Audio Media Creations, a British music production house, whose clients include the BBC, ITV and Sony.

Tony is just one of the many successful composers from all around the world that MFTM has produced over the past fifteen years (see the Student Spotlight for a more detailed showcase of our students).

After recently being updated to it’s 3rd edition in 2011, MFTM remains the ultimate resource for composers looking to make a living writing to picture, and the only course of its kind taught 100% by working professional composers.

Cinematic Orchestration

During the 12 month programme you will explore all major areas of the industry from the small, unsaturated yet lucrative corners unknown to many composers, all the way through to feature films, TV, video games and commericals, with access to several projects to score each unit, all taken from real world briefs from our professional composers, so you can get hands on training in writing to picture, and master your craft.

In addition to our wide range of professional film scoring tutors, MFTM features a large roster of high profile guest teachers, including the likes of David Arnold, Michael Nyman, George Fenton, Debbie Wiseman, Tommy Tallarico, Jim Latham and many, many more- not to mention interviews with top agents, publishers and directors to help you get hired (see our tutors page for a full list).

My ability to write to picture was changed forever by the MFTM course [and] it has helped me attract an agent. I don’t believe this would have been as easy without the skills I gained through MFTM, and… All I can say is its very good training and my music and skills have changed forever.
