NYU Steinhardt Launches TV Scoring Workshop with ‘24’ and ‘Homeland’ Composer Sean Callery


NYU Steinhardt, in collaboration with Broadcast Music, Inc. (BMI), is offering a first-of-its-kind workshop dedicated to the practical, aesthetic, and specific techniques of scoring for television.

Sean Callery
Four-time Emmy winner Sean Callery co-created the NYU/BMI Television Scoring Workshop.

The workshop is co-created and led by four-time Emmy winner Sean Callery, a composer known for his work on television shows including Homeland, 24, Jessica Jones, Bones, Elementary, and Designated Survivor.

Participants in the workshop – which takes place June 13-20, 2017 – will learn how to streamline their creative process, create professional mock-ups and final mixes, get the most of out sample libraries, and interface with industry professionals including showrunners, music editors, and producers.

“Television keeps rebirthing itself -- it’s changing so much and it’s becoming so exciting,” Callery said on the red carpet at the 2016 Emmy Awards shortly before accepting an award for Outstanding Main Title Theme Music for Marvel's Jessica Jones.

Along with the NYU/BMI Music for Advertising and NYU/ASCAP Film Scoring Workshops, the NYU/BMI Television Scoring Workshop is one of three that together form the Summer Scoring Intensive, a three-week experience tailored to the individual creative processes, skillsets, and demands that are required of the modern media composer. The programs are open to composers at all levels, including high school students, undergraduates, graduate students, and professionals.
