The "Hollywood Music Workshop" (HMW) lined-up an amazing roster of top Hollywood composers, orchestrators and arrangers to teach Master Classes this summer in Austria. For the first time students will have the opportunity to record with an 18-piece string orchestra at the brand new "Synchron Stage Vienna" Recording facility.

"I am tremendously excited to be returning to Vienna this summer to teach at the Hollywood Music Workshop", says Joe Kraemer. "The classes will be in the Music City of Baden, so I am looking forward to expanding my view of Austria's beautiful country".

The HMW was founded by classical violin soloist and sought after Hollywood studio violinist Dimitrie Leivici and producer/ radio host/ musical actress Lilo Bellotto. For the past seven years HMW brought together an amazing line-up of top Hollywood composers, orchestrators and arrangers to hold Master Classes in the Music City of Baden, just outside of Vienna. The HMW is all about bringing talented composers, seasoned and newcomers, from around the world together in one place, providing them with first-class courses and a very inspiring working environment. Through a personal working relationship between lecturers and students both profit from one another and grow in their career.

Here is a quote from a past (and future) student: "Very honored to have met Conrad Pope, one of the greatest orchestrators, with a long experience, in the credits of more than 115 films. A lot of us would like to work on such movies. Thank you also to Nan Schwartz who gave us useful insights into musical arrangement at the HMW. Today, I'm still improving my programming, mixing and orchestration skills. I'll be back ... in Baden next summer."

The 2016 Hollywood Music Workshop will take place July 6th through August 11th, 2016, at the historic Casino Baden, a short train ride from the City Center of Vienna. Participants can create their own curriculum by choosing from a variety of 3-day and 6-day workshops. Students get a discounted rate by booking before April 14th.
