This is a one of a kind opportunity to work and study with some of Hollywood’s greatest film music talents in the wonderful ambience of the beautiful City of Baden. Composers such as Mozart, Beethoven, Strauss and Lanner performed in this historic Spa Town near Vienna.

Some reviews about the HMW 2019

“Huge thanks to all of you! CONRAD’s and NAN’s class was beyond amazing and getting to know all of you was an honor.
Hope to see you next year!
– Rolf Gustavson (FINLAND)

“Having a great time attending the Hollywood Music Workshop in Baden, Austria, for the second year in a row. Last week I had the privilege to meet and learn from legendary game composer GARRY SCHYMAN (composer of Bioshock) and this week with the great JOHN LUNN (composer of Downton Abbey). It’s really just incredible to be here, to meet and get to know other composers, and to study with experienced and accomplished professionals in the industry. Here’s me at our visit to Synchron stage in Vienna to observe a recording session with Garry Schyman.”
– Keith Ramsey (USA)

Our Mission

The Hollywood Music Workshop is all about bringing talented composers from around the world together and providing them with professional master-classes in a very inspiring working environment. Through our curriculum we strive to educate composers and help them advance and further their careers. We establish personal relationships between lecturers and participants and therefore let them profit from one another.

What an experience! Learning from Hollywood´s masters who are not only the best in their craft, but who are also such musically sensitive, wonderful, real human beings!

— Joel Nah, Singapore

I gained more knowledge learning from these composers than in 1 year doing my degree in music composition. This workshop gave me guidance, advice and insight that you just can’t get at any online or at a university.”
