Composer’s Workshop – Musician Interviews

At Cinesamples and Hollywood Scoring, we released a video series where we interview several of our friends in the music scoring industry of Los Angeles.

In this first set we cover Horn (Dylan Hart), Trumpet (Rob Schaer), Tuba (Doug Tornquist), Flute (Amy Tatum), Clarinet (Phil O’Connor), Violin (Mark Robertson) and Cello (David Low).
