Mentored by BMI composers Mac Quayle (American Horror Story, Mr. Robot), Chad Fischer (Scandal, Private Practice) Blake Neely (Arrow, Supergirl), Peter Nashel (Iconoclasts, I, Tonya) and Nathan Barr (Americans, True Blood), who taught via Skype, aspiring composers in this year’s NYU/BMI Television Scoring Workshop were immersed in all aspects of scoring for television. In addition to providing real-life experiences of how to be creative with limited and “in-the-box” resources, the 12-day workshop also gave insights on how to interface with key players of post-production teams and deliver successful work on-time in high-pressure situations with short deadlines. In addition to these esteemed guest teachers, the yearly workshop was overseen by BMI composer Mark Suozzo, along with Ron Sadoff, director of NYU’s film scoring & music composition department. BMI’s Doreen Ringer-Ross was also on-hand to lend her expertise about career development for composers.
