TESTIMONIALS

"I spent 4 years at The Guildhall School of Music. Throughout this time, Stephen mentored me into a confident and able composer. His lessons were invaluable to me and we covered all the techniques required to begin a life as a composer for film and television. Stephen is an open person and I appreciated being taught on a more personal level. The fact that these lessons were given through Skype bore little impact on the quality of the lesson, which is testimony to Stephen’s teaching ability!"

"It’s been an honor to study with Stephen Endelman’s teaching for a course on film music composing in Sibelius Academy. He is an observant teacher; he is open minded and interested in endorsing every student’s personal development and growth with their artistic identity. He excels by creating conversation and making apposite observations while at the same time being supportive. The course led to an inspiration to some very innovative learning and progression."

"Mr Stephen Endelman is both an exceptional musician and educator, setting a positive and relaxed, yet stimulating environment for his students. The exciting and diverse curriculum Mr Endelman has set over the past three years I have been enrolled on his course at the Guildhall School is indicative of his passions for film scoring, and his attitude is unmistakably an inspiration to me personally. As a graduate of the Guildhall himself, I strive to follow in Stephen’s footsteps as a composer for film and television and am incredibly grateful for his commitment to his pupils and the opportunities and experiences he has brought forward to me and others. I thoroughly look forward to what Stephen has planned next for his pupils with his Masterclass."
