Composing Music for Film

Jack Smalley has combined his over forty years of experience arranging, composing and orchestrating for film and teaching into one crystal clear book – Composing Music for Film.

With his years of experience and his modern, up to date teaching methods he’s consolidated the information he’s given to thousands of students into a one stop shop for getting a head start with the reality of film composition – in fact, all composition.

Reading this book is like taking private lessons for a year with Jack Smalley.
