Music notation seminar in New York on November 1


On Halloween, it’s all about tricks and treats. The evening after, though, it will be about tools and tactics — music notation tools and tactics, to be precise.

The Society of Composers and Lyricists in New York is presenting a seminar entitled “Music Notation Tools and Tactics” on Thursday, November 1, 2018 at 7 pm, at Alchemical Studios, Studio A, located at 104 West 14th Street.

“The SCL NY,” as it says on the event page, “brings notation for media projects to the forefront with this exciting panel. We will consider some of the revolutionary technology taking center stage of this important component of scoring, and discuss various tips and tactics for today’s media composer.”

I’ll be one of the three panelists and I’m excited to join my colleagues Greg Pliska and Steinberg’s Greg Ondo for what will surely be a fun evening talking about the world of music notation and related technology — the essence of what we cover here on Scoring Notes. JoAnne Harris will moderate. I’m looking forward to an active and robust discussion, and hope to convey as much practical information as possible in the allotted two-hour time.

The event costs $35 for non-SCL members to attend, but the SCL has generously agreed to provide a complimentary promotional code to Scoring Notes readers. That’s right, the event will be absolutely free if you apply the code SCORINGNOTES at checkout on the event page. Be sure to register in advance, though, because space is limited. Thanks, SCL!

If you’re in New York and available this Thursday, November 1, I hope you’ll attend!
