Scoring the Bollywood Musical
How does a composer use song themes in the underscore for a Bollywood film? And if there is more than one composer on a film, each using their own musical scales, what is the Bollywood score composer to do to make them fit together harmonically? And what is the sensibility of a Bollywood film score as different from a Hollywood-style score? Come learn from one of the masters of the Bollywood score, Raju Singh, as he presents examples from his own work and takes student questions.
 
Rajinder Singh Panesar is an Indian musician, music composer, arranger, music director, music producer and singer. He has composed scores for over a hundred movies.

Hal Galper discusses the nature of jazz rhythm, including swing beat, syncopation, second-line march beat, rubato playing, and forward motion. Bring your instruments to this workshop/clinic as there will be opportunities to play.

Galper’s 21st-century series of trio albums for Origin Records incorporates his development of “rubato” playing as a means of melding in his fifth decade as a major jazz artist. Galper continues the innovation that has made him one of today’s most surprising and satisfying pianists. Galper’s latest Origin Records release album, with bassist Jeff Johnson and drummer John Bishop, O’s Time, is available at originarts.com.

Galper’s discography includes 103 albums, with 32 of them under his name. He is a leader not only as a performer but also as an educator, with emphasis on theory, performance, and the worldly side of music as a profession. He was a founding member of New York’s New School of Jazz and Contemporary Music and recently retired from his 14-year tenure at Purchase Conservatory.
