PNWFS Summer Intensive Program in Seattle

The PNWFS Summer Intensive Program is back!!!!

Come study the art, craft, and business of music for film and other media in a two-week seminar with 2 time Emmy Award winning composer/arranger Hummie Mann, other veterans of the industry, and a group of students from around the world and around the music industry.

Ever since the launch of our website, The Pacific Northwest Film Scoring Program has received requests from prospective students who either do not live in the Seattle area or who wish to take some of the program's training in a more compressed time period. In order to accommodate these students, we created the Two Week Summer Intensive Program, which ran in Seattle every year from 2001 to 2015 and is now offered every other year. The program has become extremely popular, attracting students from as far away as Australia, Brazil, Columbia, Dubai, Hungary, Italy,  Japan, Korea, Mexico, Romania, Scotland, Sweden, Turkey and United Arab Emirates as well as from all over the US and Canada. The two-week program for 2017 is scheduled to run from July 31st to August 11th, 2017, Monday through Friday, from 10:00 AM to 5:30 PM, and will include a number of “core” and elective courses, some evening film screenings and weekend activities.

There is a Welcome Reception/Program Registration scheduled for late afternoon on Sunday, July 30th, 2016. Refreshments will be served. Please note that our special accommodation rates are available for a limited time only, pending room availability.
