Miriam Sternlicht is a media composer who’s actually fairly new to the game, but I think you’re really going to get a lot out of this episode as I’m sure many of you listening are in a very similar boat to Miriam.
If you recognise her name that might be down to her excellent work as an administrator for the Global Composer’s Network, and we’re actually going to chat a little about that work and how being involved in groups like that can be so beneficial to you as a composer.
We’re also going to talk about how one masterclass, Hans Zimmer’s to be precise, totally changed the direction of Miriam’s life.
Here’s what we cover :
[03:31] How Hans Zimmer’s masterclass changed Miriam’s focus

[14:32] About the Global Composers Network
