12 Gifted Composers From Six Countries Selected For Exclusive ASCAP Film Scoring Workshop


New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ ASCAP) ASCAP, the world leader in performing rights and advocacy for music creators, today announced the 12 composer participants selected for its prestigious annual ASCAP Film Scoring Workshop, now in its 29th year. Led by Emmy Award-winning composer Richard Bellis, the comprehensive 4-week program takes place in Los Angeles. It culminates when each aspiring composer has the opportunity to record their original score for a major motion picture scene using the same tools as a world-class composer: a 64-piece orchestra at the historic Newman Scoring Stage at FOX Studios.

The Workshop, supported by The ASCAP Foundation, is known in Hollywood circles for grooming some of the world's top composers, connecting them with agents, music supervisors, attorneys and A-list Hollywood studio executives. Among the program's alumni since its 1988 launch are Jim Dooley (TNT's Last Ship, Emmy winner for ABC's Pushing Daisies,); Rob Duncan (NBC's Timeless; multi-Emmy nominee for the ABC hit Castle, and Starz's Missing); Matthew Margeson (2017 film Rings, 2016 films Eddie the Eagle and Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, International Film Music Critics Award winner for 2015 hit The Kingsmen: Secret Service); Mateo Messina (Oscar-winning 2007 film Juno, NBC's Superstore and Hulu's Casual); Layla Minoui (Bravo's Girlfriend's Guide to Divorce), Julia Newmann (additional music for hit FOX TV series Bones); and Joe Trapanese (ABC's Quantico; 2016 film Allegiant, 2015 hit film Straight Outta Compton).

"I'm so proud of the ASCAP Film Scoring Workshop and the opportunity we have been able to offer these young composers who have worked so hard to earn their place in this exclusive group," said Shawn LeMone, ASCAP SVP Membership. "ASCAP supports its members in all stages of their careers and it is gratifying to get see them go on to make their marks in the film and television industry."

The Workshop is produced by ASCAP Film and TV membership executives Michael Todd and Jennifer Harmon. Participants are chosen from more than 300 applicants by a team of 20 professional composers. This year's participants are:

Among the scoring legends and top-tier composers that have lectured at the Workshop are: Henry Mancini, Elmer Bernstein, Randy Newman, Hans Zimmer, James Newton Howard, John Powell, Geoff Zanelli, Garry Schyman, Michael Levine, David Vanacore, Ron Jones, Jeff Cardoni, Michael Giacchino, Marco Beltrami, Buck Sanders, Walter Murphy, Mark Isham, Alf Clausen, Ramin Djawadi, Bruce Broughton, Steve Porcaro, Jay Gruska, David Lawrence, Brian Tyler, Sean Callery, Mark Snow and John Debney.
