I really loved this course - there are amazing insights on workflow and Laszlo explains everything very enthusiastically. The way he works from a simple sketch to a full mixed track is an eye opener and will be useful for composers in all kinds of styles. Great tips on composing and mixing - everything you need!

Trailer Music: Elevation | Trailer Music Course

Build a strong foundation with our in-depth trailer music course Trailer Music: Elevation.

To become a successful trailer music composer, it's simply a must to be aware of industry trends and to develop efficient skills and workflows. Now more than ever, we feel the need to provide aspiring composers an up to date course, covering everything necessary to succeed in the modern trailer world.

To fulfill this task, we teamed up with non other than Laszlo Marodi, a true genius when it comes to modern trailer styles.

In his everyday work, writing for companies such as Colossal Trailer Music and BrandX Music, he is required to write in many different trailer styles, facing tight deadlines.

Trailer Music: Elevation is the first part of his two-part series and builds a solid foundation for composers by teaching essential and modern trailer music concepts, unique workflows and techniques. By the end of this course students will be ready to dive into the next chapter, Trailer Music: Modern Styles which will prepare them to write for the various modern trailer music genres.

László Maródi

At the age of 8, playing the Ode to Joy by ear on piano, Laszlo realized he wanted to dedicate his life to music.

Laszlo Marodi is a music producer and composer, always busy working on multiple media projects, collaborating with many top-tier trailer publishers such as SPM Music Group, Universal Music Group, Warner Chappel and BrandX Music. His music earned him many placements like "Fast X", "Disney's Strange World", "Chucky" and many more.

Laszlo is also one of the founders of the well known film scoring competition, Score The World. He is creating unique cinematic sample packs, developing midi instrument devices, and always collaborates with other composers since for him: music is the best way to connect!

Other than being a producer, Laszlo is an active musician, having performed as a guitar player on many stages across Germany, Hungary and a few other countries.

Really enjoyed Lazslo's course, for a beginner like myself in the trailer genre,
it helped me not only from the basic requirements and needs of a trailer track but also with
clear ideas on how to develop your pieces. From ideas generation to multiple tracks analysis,
from sketching a simple idea to developing a full piece, mixing and mastering, insights on workflow and the trailer music business,
you get a lot of valuable info and tips from a great teacher, with a clear and pragmatic way to transmit his knowledge.

“I am writing to say how much I love the Trailer Music Elevation course. Laszlo is a master at his craft and does an excellent job conveying that knowledge. The course goes into great detail into what makes a killer trailer track, from writing, instrumentation to mixing and even some mastering. He’s a great teacher and is available to answer questions. I’ve been able to immediately put into practice what I learned and can clearly hear the difference in my newer tracks.”
