Welcome to the leading community of industry professionals dedicated to the art of scoring.

We’ve created an opportunity for you to study with modern masters of their crafts. Dive into a decade of score studies, guest interviews, and panel discussions to discover how to take your music to the next level.

We welcome you to join our community today!


We’re proud to partner with Thomas Goss of Orchestration Online on our 2023 Orchestration Challenge! This unique event offers our Los Angeles members the opportunity to have their orchestrations played by live musicians and critiqued by Thomas himself. Composers that wish to enter the challenge will be given a melody that they will orchestrate for our ensemble. Learn more here.
