We are planning to run this program in-person for summer 2022; however, we must remain flexible in our response to COVID-19 developments. The health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff are our primary concerns, so remote workshops may be a necessary alternative. This page will be updated as soon as guidance from NYU central is available.
Headlined by luminary composers Mark Snow (The X-Files, Blue Bloods), Michael Levine (Siren, Star Wars: Detours), and NYU Film Scoring faculty, and featuring different guests year to year like Tamar-Kali Brown (Come Sunday, Mudbound), music editors Suzana Peric (The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, The Silence of the Lambs) and Todd Kasow (True Grit, Wonderstruck), or Sean Callery (24, Homeland).
The NYU Steinhardt Film Scoring Workshop will highlight:
- Creative Process and Composition

- Fill out your personal information
- Submit a short statement introducing yourself and explaining your past experience in screen scoring. You may also submit, optionally, a one-page bio.
- Select the workshop (or workshops) you are interested in applying to, and specify if you are interested in applying as a participant or as an auditor.
- Submit 3-6 audio/video files to showcase your music. Submit your best work, regardless of its connection with the workshop you are applying to. We are not judging your past experience in the field, but your overall composing/production skills.
For each file, submit a PDF explaining the purpose or context of the piece/track, the composing process, technical details if applicable (libraries used, sound processors, software, etc.) and any other relevant information.
Consider including pieces for orchestra or large ensemble with scores if that is the kind of work you would like to focus on during the workshop.
