Woohoo!





Episode 30 of "Small Change, Massive Difference" has arrived! I discuss the benefits of parallel motion (it isn't always a bad thing in the 21st century!) in my latest tutorial video. The track transcribed is "Ganon's Tower" from Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, composed by Koji Kondo!

I look forward to any and every comment Smiley

My latest video is here!





This entry is all about Oblique Motion, which is fabulous at designating the moving voice, as well as providing a sense of serenity since the music isn't quite as active. Koji Kondo's "Song of Healing," from The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask is a great example of how effective Oblique Motion can be!

If you're interested in private lessons for any of your personal music needs, my calendar is open for the Summer months! (June/July/August)

It'd be great to work with each and every one of my viewers!

Hello, everyone!





My latest video game development music tutorial is all about what makes Wild West music sound like Wild West music. There are a ton of common denominators, and Koji Kondo's "Hidden Village" music from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess has many of them combined!

Quite a few folks have contacted me about private lessons for their musical needs over the past few weeks. As of now, my calendar is open for the Summer months! (June/July/August). Let me know if you're interested!

Good morning, and Happy April!





This video is all about reharmonizing your themes. Whether it's a major change in harmony, or simply restructuring the harmony you've already established, reharmonization is a fantastic way at creating variety within your track. I demonstrate through Koji Kondo's "Song of Time" from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. It's a straightforward melody, and I felt it a perfect example as to approaching reharmonization!

My private lessons are still open for the summer months. Let me know if you're interested! It's been a blast so far with my newest students, so do consider!

Hello, everyone!





My final video in the series is all about melodic trajectory (or direction). Through Jeremy Soule's "Nerevar Rising" from The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, I discuss how the rise and fall of your melody can greatly impact its effectiveness. This video marks the 1-year anniversary of starting the series, as well!

From this point forward, I’ll be focusing my attention on Orchestration Station on a bi-weekly basis, as my private lessons are on the alternate days! However, if you have any questions regarding game music that hasn’t been covered in this series, by all means let me know, as I’m continually taking students for the future.

Thanks for watching everyone! Hopefully you can make it through all 35 episodes!

Wow, thank you so much! This mainly consists of composition from a theoretical standpoint. However, Akash Thakkar has an INCREDIBLE series on Sound Design. Highly recommended!

(He's the S.D. for Hyper Light Drifter in case you don't recognize the name).

Very relevant to my interests as I'm a non-audio guy and become blind - err, deaf - to these types of things. Tons of content here - thanks for putting these together

You're so welcome! I'm glad you enjoy them. I have a tangential, but slightly more complicated series, called "Orchestration Station," which helps from a 'coloristic' standpoint in music.

Ultimately, I'm so happy this series is helpful to you! :D
