Maarten Bauer posted a topic in Composers' HeadquartersHello everybody, Maybe this will just be my outlet topic for this horrible assignment for school, but perhaps this topic can turn into an interesting discussion. Since I have my final exams this year, I have to do a school research project, like all other pre-university students in Holland. Obviously, I chose the subject Music, because the assignment is then to compose a composition for a professional ensemble. It sounded like a lot of fun, but now the problems have begun... The assignment for Music is to write a plan, in which you describe what you want to do with the music, before composing a single note. The teacher asks for which tonalities, which orchestrations, which themes, which time signatures, which tempo etc. What do you think about that? I always compose, while composing, because that is my way of composing. How can teachers expect from students to write a document containing 10.000 words about the music (in one week), before composing a single note? Greetings from a desparate composer
Best schools for film music
pateceramics posted a topic in Composers' HeadquartersFound this article listing the top 25 film schools... We get so many people here trying to decide where to apply to study composition for film, this might be helpful. A school with a good film program AND a good music composition program would probably be a good place to be. Here's the film school list. See if there's anywhere on it that you're also thinking about because of it's music program. http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/lists/best-film-schools-2016-top-920344/item/usc-25-film-schools-2016-920351 Cheers! pate ceramics
Sarastro posted a topic in Composers' HeadquartersI'm briefed to design a music school for my last project studio course. We have been given a rough outline of a generic program that we must customize and make more complex. So, I'm asking you for input: what would your ideal music school be like? I'm not asking for specific shapes, organizations or spatial relationships, but more what kind of spaces, activities and interactions you would like to have in your ideal music school. You can post your opinion as student, teacher or general public. Thanks!
After talking with several people and discussing my situation with Student Accounts, I have set up a WePay Donations page to help raise money to help pay the remaining balance. I'm not comfortable asking for assistance from people -particularly monetary assistance. I was brought up to work hard and earn what I want in life. This is something, I feel, I have exhibited up to this point. So, I'm just going to try this and see if it works. https://www.wepay.com/x15v98k/donate/100281
