Film Scorer In the Making
by Jenay Ross

Kristin Kuraishi, a 17-year-old senior from Irvine, CA, had no experience with music production, but is now learning tons from her track. She learned of GRAMMY Camp® through her music director when she was looking for something fun to do over the summer.

At school she works on film scoring projects consisting of orchestral or flow jazz music. “It’s like going to sleep music,” she says. Kristin is thinking about pursuing a job dealing with commercials, jingles, or film/TV scoring. She also plays piano, flute, and piccolo and loves to listen to acoustic and pop music. One of her favorite artists is The Morning Of.

Originally she applied for the film scoring track, but since that’s not offered this year she decided to try something new. During her music production workshops, she is able to create mixes and learn about all the different programs. “It’s pretty chill,” she says.
