Tom Salta has decades of experience composing music for video games, including Killer Instinct Season 3, Halo The Fall of ReachTom Clancy's Ghost Recon and dozens of other scores. Recently he embarked on a new project to share the expertise he's gained over the years with his Masterclass series of courses that explore the challenges of writing music for games. He says it's his way of giving back  and helping aspiring game composers.

Tom says the inspiration for his Masterclass series was to create a way for composers to have access to the same high-quality learning sessions that are ofered at conferences like Game SoundCon and the Game Developers' Conference without the need to travel. When asked why he'd reveal all his hard-won secrets of success, Tom says, "better composers make the game music community a better place for all."
