BMI CONDUCTS WORKSHOP FOR
YOUNG FILM AND TV COMPOSERS

An exclusive report by HITS' Erica Ramon
Every year, BMI sponsors an invitation only workshop for today’s most talented film and television composers.

This year, our own Erica Ramon got a rare glimpse of the inside process and brought us back this exclusive report.

“I went inside to watch what happens when accomplished composers go back to school. Armed with sheet music and batons, eight eager musicians made their way to the Musician’s Institute several times throughout the last two weeks, to soak up the teachings of renowned conductor Lucas Richman.

Now, you may think that the little baton is merely a prop, as I once did, but that mighty little stick guides volume, tempo and everything in between. This year’s lucky eight, including Rob Cairns, Barbara Cohen, David Kitay, Mark Koval, Michael Picton, Gingger Shankar, Dan Slider and Billy Sullivan, took to the podium and found their rhythm, practicing with selections from the legendary Jerry Goldsmith and classical composers of their choice.

As the workshop progressed, the composers became more and more comfortable and successfully forged unique relationships with the music and the orchestra they were conducting. Although mastery of this art takes years of practice, these composers made it their own in just a short time. For more information on opportunities like this, visit www.bmi.com.
