About the teacher:
Max Mueller is a Los Angeles based film composer, educator and performer who has been involved in music education for the past 2 decades. Upon moving to Los Angeles, Max began to establish himself in the film music world by assisting Academy Award nominated composer David Newman on reconstructing and re-engraving older film scores for live performance purposes with various symphony orchestras. Max has also recently orchestrated Newman’s scores for the movies "Girls Trip" and "Night School" and the Netflix show "Green Eggs and Ham", produced by Ellen DeGeneres.
Max has composed music for the short films for two veteran Disney animators: Pixote Hunt and James Lopez.
Max has orchestrated and arranged music for such artists as Mike Garson (pianist for David Bowie), concert violinist Sarah Chang, and events such as the Grammys and the Kennedy Center Honors.
As a film composer, Max won best score at the New Orleans Horror Film Festival in 2015 for his score to "Trace". Max also organized and crowd funded the first ‘film music’ orchestra ‘flashmob’ at Universal Studios, Hollywood in tandem with American Youth Symphony and Hamilton High School in Los Angeles. The performance highlighted the great Universal Pictures film scores.
Max is a graduate of the Commercial and Media Writing Program at California State University, Northridge, and continues to look for new ways to combine the practical side of music found in performance with the creative side of music found in composing and arranging in music education. Max also continues to bring awareness to the importance of young musicians balancing private instruction and their participation in a community ensemble experience in music performance.
