Coming into the industry

I am a very young inexperienced composer/arranger and I have found this very useful for my pieces. I would like to thank the host, creators, and composers for your help with inspiring me to do more.

Don’t miss this podcast

I am an arranger/orchestrator, and this podcast is so inspiring to me. It’s wonderful hearing the origins of these beautiful scores, from sweating over a motif for a larger work to the final product. I have laughed and cried listening to the composers, but mainly I have found a connection to them and found myself not alone. I wait impatiently for each episode. The John Debney episode is a must-hear. Thank you for your podcast!!
