Scott Freiman
By Martin Sitter

Scott Freiman was recommended to me by my good friend, and star macProVideo.com trainer, Steve H.! After talking with Scott for a bit I came to understand his immense musical abilities ... I knew we had to have him as a trainer at macProVideo.com.

Scott's credentials as a musician are nothing short of breath-taking. For starters, Scott may be the only person to have sold out Carnegie Hall and been a Finalist for Ernst and Young’s Entrepreneur of the Year award.

A member of New York’s prestigious Manhattan Producers Alliance, Scott is a composer and producer whose music spans a variety of genres, from orchestral to electronic. His original music and sound design have accompanied award-winning films, animated shorts, and other multimedia projects.

Scott’s original film music has been performed at Lincoln Center (live with picture) and at a sold-out Carnegie Hall concert, “Composed By Scott Freiman.” Scott composed the original score for Undone, a feature film directed by James DePaiva. He also composed the original score for the film Exit, winner of a Best Director Platinum Award at the 38th Annual WorldFest, Houston International Film Festival. Scott’s other film scores include the award-winning Bodies (Ojai Film Festival -- Best Narrative Short) and Foreign Policy.

Scott was sound editor and re-recording mixer for Encounter Point, a documentary from Ronit Avni and Julia Bacha, the writer of Control Room (Tribeca Film Festival, San Francisco Int’l Film Festival – Audience Award, Best Documentary). Scott has also provided sound editing, design, and mixing for several other films, including Puppy Love, the new series from Sex and the City producer, Amy B. Harris.

Scott is also the owner of Second Act Studio, a state-of-the-art music and video studio for composition, recording, and production designed by renowned studio architect, John Storyk. Second Act Studio has played host to a wide range of musicians -- from children to Grammy winners.

Scott is a partner in the record label, Garagista Music. Scott co-produced several recordings for the label, including Lisa Lynne Mathis’ debut, Hancock Place, and the holiday compilation, Not Just Another Holiday CD. Scott has also produced, arranged, and played keyboards for many other artists. Scott is also a founding partner of Outlandos Music which offers brand-building music supervision.

Scott holds a B.S. in Computer Science and Music from Yale University and a Masters of Music Composition from New York University. He was a co-founder of Credit Management Solutions, Inc., a leading financial software company where Scott served as CEO. Scott, a Finalist for Ernst & Young’s Maryland Entrepreneur of the Year, helped lead CMSI’s successful public offering and orchestrated the sale of CMSI to the First American Corporation. After fifteen years of running a public company, he embarked on a new career as a composer and studio owner.

A strong advocate for music education for children, Scott has taught composing and music technology to children of all ages. He is also on the advisory board of Renovation in Music Education (RIME), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation helping young people, arts organizations, and communities succeed through innovative music-partnership programs. And of course, Scott is also an instructor for macProVideo.com … and we could not be luckier than to have him on board!

    I love this course. I re-subscribed just to check it out, and am glad I did. What I really liked is that it stays fairly simple while going to into harmonic depth. The principles are basic, but the examples of songs from the beatles really drive it home. Great job!

    Excellent course for those wanting to escape the prescriptive scale and suited chord approach to broaden and justify their creativity with alternative methods to songwriting. Highly recommend this course as a must watch for beginner, intermediate and advanced player. Easy to follow, although I had to watch some of the video lessons a few times. Thank you :-)

    jeffmorrison@telus.net Excellent course with some really great insights on the genius of the Beatles and their use of different types of chord progressions. Scott does a tremendous job of presenting in a very clear and concise style. Definitely worth the time. I'm pretty sure everyone will get something out of this that they didn't know about the Beatles music. After watching in one sitting I will be take notes on my second go round!! Thanks Scott!! Nice work!!
