This Halloween I had an opportunity to write two fun articles on composing freaky Halloween music. The first focuses on improvisation and the ways that you can use improvisation to create scary film music and gives step-by-step examples of a short scary sound track. Included are tips on creating dramatic effects and logistical issues like timecode.

Enjoy great Halloween film music examples from Psycho, Halloween, and other haunted favorites in the second Halloween film music article at Easy Ear Training.

You can find both Halloween articles (And and a fun free Halloween download) here:

Have a Happy (and Musical) Halloween!
