"No matter what level you’re at, The Film Scoring Summer Program allows you to develop as a composer. The Faculty inspire you every day by passing on their passion and enthusiasm for film music in the classroom, on the soundstage and in the studio. You get to work with amazing musicians, in a breath-taking location, creating irreplaceable friends along the way. It’s one of the most profound experiences of my life and I couldn’t recommend it more."

"I spent the most incredible 3 and a half weeks in Varna studying film composing and meeting the most amazing musicians. For me, to be surrounded by such talent and friendship was simply THE best experience, and helped me to understand that I really am a composer!"

"Participating in this program truly changed my life. Learning to be able to write quickly and appropriately for the recording sessions was extremely valuable and a different experience than other programs I've participated in before. Meeting and learning from other composers from across the globe fueled my enthusiasm for film music, and experiencing all of this on the beaches of the Black Sea made this my most unique and memorable summer yet."

"The Film Scoring Summer Program made me a better composer in so many ways. From the technical aspects to the emotional experience, all the way through the extremely useful insights into film scoring in general. I'm really grateful for all those that participated, teachers and alumni included."

"As a mostly self-taught pop/rock musician, I had a lot of gaps in my knowledge as far as composing for orchestral instruments. FSSP filled those gaps and then some! From the amazing instructors to the pieces we composed to the almost instant camaraderie with the other participants, it is a super intense three weeks, but so SO worth it!"

"The Film Scoring Summer Program was a fantastic experience for me. It provided challenges that put me out of my comfort zone and led to be some of the most gratifying learning experiences I've ever had. I learned so much about my own creative process and ability over the three weeks in Varna, and forged some life long friendships in the process."
