Hollywood Music Workshop 2016 – A recap!

One very intense week has come to an end. First of all, let me thank the organization team and all participants for making this event one of the best moments we’ve ever experienced! It was really outstanding that people from all over the world came together in Baden, Austria because they all share one thing: The passion of music! We had the great pleasure to welcome amazing people from Australia, South Korea, Serbia, Ukraine, the United States, Poland, France, Italy, Germany, and Austria, just to name a few.

It is very interesting to point out that almost everybody in the M.I.T.A. class was a well-established composer with a decent career as a working professional in the industry. Therefore, we don’t like to call anybody a ‘student’, we all are ‘composers in training’ and we simply stay curious about learning new things and we constantly improve. Before TC and I even started talking about intervals, equivalents, root cycles, and position change, you really could feel a very positive and friendly aura. In fact, the more time we all spent together, the more we all became friends! We studied, we laughed, we shared stories of our life during lunch/dinner and everybody really was having a great time!

Also, we are so happy that our invitation to join the M.I.T.A. community and stay a ‘composer in training’ for a little bit longer was so well received. Although the class at the HMW 2016 is over, it is really a beginning of new and exciting things! Let’s follow our common passion altogether and bring more good music into this world!

Be free and stay free,
