This course allows advanced senior film scoring students to move towards mastery in the areas of orchestration and conducting live ensembles to picture. Working with a studio orchestra, assignments allow students extensive experience orchestrating, composing to picture, and recording with an all-live ensemble. On alternate weeks, students will be the composer-conductor of a cue, or assist one of their fellow composers as music librarian and booth reader. This course is paired with both a music production and engineering class and an ensemble class that meet concurrently. A glimpse into this unique course can be found in this video.
