Take a sneak peek of our lesson


In 2003, the score for “Pirates of the Caribbean” got put together a bit like a patchwork quilt. The initial composer, Alan Silvestri, had a falling out with the director and left the project. The producers approached Hans Zimmer who was under exclusive contract to another film. However, Zimmer brought Klaus Badelt on board.

Time was so tight – only three weeks were available to write the music, so a whole flock of additional composers were brought in to work on the orchestral score and write short, additional music cues.
