Narrative Scoring

Why do human beings crave story and what makes storytelling work in Scoring?

An absolutely gripping and fascinating exposé on how music tells story. Take a deep dive into the human mind and the social species in this master class lecture from music score theorist and composer Evan Evans (the son of Jazz Pianist Bill Evans).

Learn why storytelling works, and why it is so desirable to mankind. Learn how music can play an even bigger role in the psychology of storytelling than even the visuals or sound themselves.

The concepts are well researched and span storytelling theories from 2500 B.C.E. to the most modern scholars of our time in social psychology.

After you have taken this class you will be armed with an edge in the marketplace like no other. This is the first time these concepts have been published for students from Mr. Evans studies and teachings.

Frequently Asked Questions

When does the class start and finish?
It is a completely self-paced online educational program - you decide when you start and when you finish, and you can re-watch classes as many times as you wish.
How long do I have access to the class, it's curriculum, teachers, materials and forums?
In traditional in-person classes you do not get access to the instruction beyond the first day. We are happy to inform you that at the online Film Scoring Academy you will have access to the classes, mentorship, materials, forum discussions, and any supplemental new content as it comes for a period of 1 year, and can renew access annually for 10% of the most current retail price for the program.
What if I am unhappy with the class?
We would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase within the first 30 days, stop immediately and contact us and we will give you a refund for the portion of the program you did not activate. We're sorry, but if you already activated a section, we have no way of knowing if you watched it or not, and just like real university, once you have taken a class you cannot "untake" it. In that case you will have been delivered the education and those portions cannot be refunded. You will be refunded for the portion you did not take only. We believe that is fair to you and us.
