Erick Schroder – Film Composer

about_erick 2016

My job as a composer is to tell a story—a story that you envisioned. Whether it is a film, video game, or theatre production, I help to communicate the feel and emotions of your project through music.

Music has an essential, unique role of being a guiding force, shaping the medium to which it is applied in considerable ways and I greatly enjoy being an integral part of this process. I find value in the collaborative nature of composing and appreciate working with others throughout the creation process.

I look forward to working with you.

Erick Schroder is a film, theater, and video game composer originally from San Diego, California.  His compositions have included works for vocal and instrumental soloists, choral groups, stage musicals, jazz, and orchestral ensembles.  Erick’s passion for music developed at an early age through his attendance of local musical theater productions.  Throughout the years, he served as the musical director for numerous stage productions.  After several years in the musical theater industry, his musical interests expanded to include the world of composition and film scoring.

Erick attended Point Loma Nazarene University where he received his degree (B.M.) in Music Composition.  He later went on to attend the prestigious Scoring for Motion Picture and Television Program at the University of Southern California. While attending USC, Erick honed his composition skills under the guidance of Bruce Broughton, Frederick Weidmann, Garry Schyman, and Jack Smalley.  In 2012, Erick was granted the valuable opportunity to be mentored by Emmy and Grammy winning composer James Newton Howard.  He also has had the distinct pleasure of working alongside John Debney and Christopher Young in various scoring workshops.  In 2013, Erick was one of twelve internationally selected composers to be accepted into the renowned ASCAP scoring workshop. He recently worked with NBC on their show Siberia and provided mock-ups for a new Disney film.
