Film and TV Composers’ Favorite Key(s) to Write In

Recommended Posts

Hans Zimmer for example uses the D Minor key in a lot of his scores.

 

I happen to find Randy Newman uses G Major as his go to key.

 

John Williams uses every major and minor key because he’s underrated.

 

Any other composers that have a favorite key signature?

 

Note: Randy Newman is one of my favorite movie composers next to John Williams because of his trademark uses of Mickey-mousing to the film’s actions, using various time signatures, and using triple tuplets.
