How to use music in podcasting
Love music and its power and know you need it to help take your podcast to the next level, but aren’t sure where to start? In this 2 part workshop award-winning composer Nina Perry will guide you through the basic concepts you need to work with music. In the first session you’ll learn the key principles in how to marry music and speech, as well as different approaches to using music to support narrative and to impact your audience. You’ll receive a short homework assignment and during the second session you’ll share it as part of a group critique and receive feedback on your work. You’ll leave class with a firm understanding of how to think about selecting music, how to work with it to enhance your storytelling and how to use music to give your podcast that professional feel. You’ll even get tips on how to collaborate and communicate with musicians effectively so that they whip up just the right magical, musical mood.
Note: Attendees should bring along an example of a podcast (timecode and URL helpful) where they loved the use of music. It’s ok if you can’t explain why at this stage – you will unpick that during the workshop.
