About the Masterclass

What does it take to be a composer? Years of experience? Detailed knowledge of musical theory? A degree in music? The answer is: none of these!

If you enjoy music, and want to try your hand at composing, this masterclass is for you. Here's your chance to learn directly from Shantanu Moitra, the music director behind 3 Idiots, Parineeta, and Lage Raho Munna Bhai, to name a few. In this two-day workshop, you will go behind the scenes of some of your favourite songs, and learn about what it took to create them.

What you’ll learn:

  • The role different sounds play
  • A history of sound
  • How the Talkies came about
  • Tools and techniques for a composer
  • Sound design and music
  • Creating scores: ideas to execution
