Learn how to make music right from the beginning.
Learn about musical theory was practicing it.
Create Music to be used in games.
Create dynamic music that can be layered to create new soundscapes.

Making music doesn’t have to be difficult or expensive. Using the free and open-source LMMS with its free instruments and sounds allow you to bring your games to life using music. Music is a part of games that often gets overlooked and with this course, you’ll learn how to make a soundtrack for your game.

In this course, Michael will first take you from knowing nothing about LMMS, learning its interface and tools, to composing a rhythm track. Rhythm is a fundamental part of music creation, it is a great place to start experimenting and having fun whilst learning a little theory along the way.

Throughout the course, you will use musical frameworks to help guide you when creating your music. The theory doesn’t have to be dry and boring when it is implemented straight away which we will do throughout the course when we need to learn something new.

We will be covering:

  • Themes and variations.

  • Expanding LMMS with multiple plugins.

  • Creative dynamic and reactive music for your games.

Later in the course, we cover modular music, where you can create a musical soundscape that can blend seamlessly from exploring the world to being engaged in battle and finally an ambient layer as well.


There is no better time than to learn the basics of composition and bring your games to life today.

You can view and review the lecture materials indefinitely, like an on-demand channel.
Definitely! If you have an internet connection, courses on Udemy are available on any device at any time. If you don't have an internet connection, some instructors also let their students download course lectures. That's up to the instructor though, so make sure you get on their good side!
