Hans Zimmer

Teaches Film Scoring

Tell a story with music

Hans Zimmer didn’t see a film until he was 12 years old. Since then, he’s scored over 150 films, including Inception, The Lion King, and The Dark Knight. In his MasterClass, the self-taught Academy Award winner teaches how he creates sounds from nothing, composes compelling character themes, and scores a movie before ever seeing it. By the end, you’ll have everything you need to tell your story.


Watch, listen, and learn as Hans teaches his first-ever film scoring class.


A downloadable workbook accompanies the class with lesson recaps and supplemental materials.
