Winifred Phillips Beginners Guide To Game Music

Winifred Phillips & GameSoundCon

I finally got a chance to meet Winifred Phillips, a video game composer and author, in person at GameSoundCon. Her book A Composer’s Guide to Game Music is a comprehensive, practical guide that leads an aspiring video game composer from acquiring the necessary creative skills to understanding the function of music in games to finding work in the field. There is nothing else like it on the market, and it’s becoming a big hit. I was her music copyist and prepared all the music engravings for the musical examples that are in her book, but we had not yet met face to face! GameSoundCon is the premiere convention for video game composers and sound designers, and highly recommended.
