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.”

“Orchestration & Arranging with CONRAD POPE & NAN SCHWARTZ was the first hybrid class – with a presence in the class room in Baden and people on Zoom. The HMW-team did an amazing job to combine the two into one seamless experience. We on Zoom felt like being there. It still can’t replace the real face to face experience & all the amazing networking and discussions that happen in breaks and after class, but it got very close. Could not have been any better! Kudos to the team for this amazing job!

– Colja Boennemann
