CLINICS and PRESENTATIONS

Eric is sometimes available to present seminars regarding film scoring and composing to groups ranging from elementary kids to high school seniors. These 30 to 60 minute fast paced and entertaining presentations are designed specifically for each group. Subjects covered may include: the history of film scoring, the mechanical process of synchronizing music to film, orchestration and composing methods, and career opportunities in the music industry. Video and audio material from films and television is presented.


For the more advanced college students, Eric has a unique extended program which he has designed for the USC Thornton School of Music SMPTV Program (Scoring for Motion Pictures and Television). It consists of two areas of focus and is designed to allow the student maximum “hands-on” experience. The first, conducting, will introduce the student to the basics of orchestral conducting and then focus specifically on the specialized techniques, methods and terminology that are present in a professional scoring session. The second area, composition, will examine in detail the many different musical styles that a working composer may be called upon to produce. The student will study and then produce a series of music cues in the style of classic Warner Bros and Disney animation, and contemporary television scoring. Other areas of film composing, such as: sound-a-likes, temp tracks, pre-records, ghost-writing, and career management will be discussed.
