How To Make Your Own Movie Theme Song
Need to know how to make your own movie theme song? Everyone around the world loves movie theme songs. There are some movie theme songs that people cannot seem to get out their heads today. Make your theme song one of those popular creations. You could start with these steps:
- Figure out what the song will be about based on the movie. It is always logical to make a movie theme song based on the content of the movie. Any song not based on the movie could confuse people.

- Begin making lyrics. Start making lyrics using rhyming words. Theme songs should rhyme and make psychological sense. You don't want to write a song that rhymes but doesn't make sense. Some theme songs may not have to rhyme at all times, but make sure it goes with the feel of the beat if any is present.
- Construct a beat. Once you get the lyrics, then get a beat to the lyrics if you do not have one already. You could make one from scratch using music software or you could buy a beat from a musician. There are many beats available online and in your local studios. Please note that you do not have to have a beat if you do not want to. There are plenty of a cappella theme songs that sound just fine. If you are making a beat, then mixing a lot of instruments will not cut it. Start with one instrument piece that catches your attention and test it out with your lyrics. If it sounds good, then slowly add in more instruments. Cut and paste if necessary. You could alter instruments through options in the music software.
- Record your lyrics. If you have or do not have a beat, then record your lyrics using a music software compatible with your computer. Record and re-record as many times as you need to make it perfect. You could visit a local studio if you want optimum results for making your movie theme song.
- Review your results. Play back your creation and determine if it sounds acceptable. If so, then you have successfully created your own movie theme song. The only thing that would be left for you to do is get your song out for all to hear!
