Words & Music is pleased to extend its helpful “how-to” series for our members, “The Breakdown,” into the realm of short, question-and-answer videos.

 In this episode, SOCAN A&R Representative Racquel Villagante talks with Mary Ancheta, an in-demand accompanist, composer, and solo performer, with a Bachelor’s degree in Music, who’s played keyboards behind Carly Rae Jepsen at a JUNO Awards dinner, opened for A Tribe Called Red and Buffy Sainte Marie while backing iskwé, and has toured the world. She’s also successfully transitioning into the screen composing world of “synchs” – synchronizing music and moving images.

Our question this time is, “What are some entry points for music creators to transition into screen composing?”
