Using your school's existing e-learning applications, Brent Daniels brings the techniques and technology he uses to produce and compose music for some of Hollywood’s biggest movie trailers (such as Marvel’s Black Panther & Disney’s A Wrinkle In Time) to the virtual classroom. Program content is variable depending on grade and experience level, making this online workshop suitable for grades 4 - 12, accommodating students with no musical background all the way up to experienced musicians, budding music producers or composers interested in a career in music. In a typical virtual workshop for students with little or no musical training, Brent will:

1. Show students one or more of the trailers in which his music is used and play the original music composed and produced for the trailers.

2. Break down sonic and musical components from his music to which trailer editors synchronize the film’s visuals.

3. Introduce students to the concepts in sound design, composition, and music production necessary for trailer music production.

4. Combine those elements to create a short example of a trailer-style music cue.

5. Middle and High School music students with some experience in music technology and production may benefit from a more customized or in-depth form of the online workshop, which Brent can provide. They also may have advanced questions about the process of music production or careers in the music industry. Brent’s online workshops are an excellent place to find answers and insight.
