Sound Design for Games at EMP

ProjectFUN has partnered with EMP Museum in Seattle to bring students a brand new sound design workshop experience at the world-renowned EMP Museum!

This workshop offers a fascinating, hands-on approach to creating music, sound effects, and soundtracks for games or animations. Students produce unique, engaging soundscapes while learning about the fundamentals of music and sound design and their use in the video game and animation industries.

This course features the same curriculum as Sound Design for Games; students who have already taken that course should not attend.

There are only 18 seats available for this workshop, so be sure to register soon!

Students will learn:
  • Recording studio basics, including audio recording hardware and software
  • How to create a library of music soundtracks and sound effects
  • Composition and songwriting, including music writing software
  • Integration of music and sound effects in games and animations


This course is open to students entering Grades 8 through 12.


Sound Design for Games is offered as a two-week workshop at EMP Museum, located in Seattle Center at 325 5th Avenue N., Seattle, WA 98105.
