The Summer Program has been a life changing musical experience. We will all remember this collective journey. From day one I knew that this immersive experience would make the difference. The rate at which these composers have increased their knowledge and leveled up within a one month time frame is very impressive. I personally recommend the summer program to any aspiring film music composers. It is a great experience, with an online or MFA program if you wish to continue studying.

This was an amazing experience! The lectures, instructors and recording ensembles were awesome! I'd highly recommend this program to composers of all experience levels. The staff does a wonderful job of challenging students of all types of backgrounds. Plus, Varna is a great place to spend a month in the summer. I don't think any of us wanted to leave at the end of the program!

Being a composer can be a very lonely day-to-day endeavor. At the FSSP we had the opportunity to be surrounded by fellow musicians, share life experiences, laugh and go out, crunch over deadlines; great experiences that are better if we do them as a community. I loved to hear everyone's music, their voices, their personalities; it was beautiful. These days we live in such a competitive and globalized world, that it was great to feel the support of everyone around you. There was no envy, no competition, no bad vibes, only a bunch of composers enjoying each other's music, company and trying to support each other. I'm grateful for the experience and for my new friends.
