Music Composer Workshop
Thursday, October 19, 2017 - 7:00pm - 8:30pm
Creation Quest, in conjunction with the Firmly Planted Homeschool Resource Center, presents an evening with composer, Conner Savoca!
This is a FREE event in Vancouver, Washington, but you must RSVP below to attend.
Born in Oregon and raised in Western Colorado, composer Conner Savoca began his musical journey early in life. At the age of six, Conner’s mom and dad encouraged him to play an instrument. Conner quickly started playing the banjo by ear. Intuitively, through hours of practice, he started to learn the nuances and joy of making music.
Conner's brothers and sisters learned instruments as well. Their family bluegrass band soon began performing dozens of concerts, locally and some across the state of Colorado.
Conner then began picking up piano. Before long, he started plucking out melodies from music he heard all around him. He always had an ear for harmony. Young Conner tuned in to the music of films and radio. He listened again and again to his favorite music, and his favorite composers. He studied them, talked with them, and learned from their techniques.
Conner became more and more intrigued with the digital aspect of music composition, sound design and video production, and in his early teens, he started developing his own studio. From this preliminary setup, Conner had the opportunity to work with a number of well known ministries and organizations; becoming assistant marketing director at Lamplighter Ministries after producing a number of dramatic video & audio advertisements for them, creating sound design and foley for the Brinkman Adventures audio series, and dialogue editing on the popular Jonathan Park audio adventure series.
Then, his good friend Pat Roy, the creator of Jonathan Park, offered Conner a lifetime opportunity, inviting him to compose the music score for a new show he was producing, Time Chroniclers.
In March 2017, Conner was selected as a finalist in the Christian Worldview Film Festival's 'Short Film Scoring Competition'. As a result, Conner has since scored 3 film projects which will be premiering there next spring.
Conner has worked on a variety of other small projects as well including Audio Theatre Central's, “Verses in Vox”.
Conner knows how to tune into the emotion of the story and creatively score the music to give wings to that emotion. He enjoys the challenge of taking on new styles, new genres, and new unique approaches.
Conner is a composer for film, radio shows, TV, and all types of media. He’s young, eager to work, gain experience, build up a clientele, and is willing to take on any project, regardless of budget. And now because of digital music technology, he has the capability to deliver to his clients a beautiful, emotive score at a fraction of the price for hiring a live orchestra.
In the end, Conner's utmost desire is to reflect The One who has been the true composer for all of God's children…writing and playing His music through us.
Conner is a young Man who has already worked with many well-known Christian organizations like Lamp Lighters Ministries, Jonathan Park, Brinkman Adventures, and Time Chroniclers. He will be an encouragement to other young homeschoolers who want to use their musical and/or technical abilities for the Lord!
In this 90 minute workshop, he will talk about:
- the type of gear needed to compose music
- how to create an underscore
- how to develop character and story themes
- how to break into the composing business
- and so much more
He is bringing his set-up, and will demonstrate on a large projection screen. This workshop is a must for anyone hoping to compose for audio dramas, movies, or any project requiring a musical score.
