In this video I use my track ‘Theory of Rain’ to showcase how to write engaging piano intros.

This track has been featured on quite a few trailers now and it is almost always the same part, the intro.

I knew when I wrote this cue that it was going to do well as it was engaging and more importantly it got me excited.
