CURRICULUM

that inspires

"Music is of the spirit...it is ephemeral and invisible, yet it affects us profoundly. It is our job as composers to understand this and to create music that affects people in a profound way.  As film composers we have the opportunity to collaborate with other artists to create something that affects us in an emotional, visceral and intellectual way."
