Seminars on film scoring for Film Composers as well as Film Makers
I have held seminars in LA at USC, LA for the composers form, NYC The NewSchool, Philly Temple, Bucks County PA, Chicago, and at film festivals and schools.
I teach film makers as well as composers; composer and film makers interactions.
I have studied acting, directing, and scripting writing.
I incorporate all this into my seminars.
I teach from the POV of a film maker/story teller. I believe the composer is another form of an actor on a film.
I'm an expert on '60's pop music.
I created a lot of it. I arranged many top hits, I know the era.
