Théo Schmitt

Composer & Conductor
CBA-5DIV--1181 - Copy (2).jpg


I am a young musician from Switzerland working as a composer and a conductor in Los Angeles.

I studied at the Conservatory of Lausanne (HEMU), The University of California Los Angeles (UCLA), and the University of Southern California (USC).

My music is often described as colorful and elaborate, both for concerts and visual media. My concert works feature pieces for Brass Band, Concert Band, Choir and Orchestra and my film music catalog includes action, animation, comedy, drama and horror.

I had the honor to be recently nominated at the Marvin Hamlisch International Music Awards (2021), the Jerry Goldsmith Awards (2023) and the International Digital Music Festival of Shanghai (2023).

I am currently working as an assistant for the 2 Grammy Awards winner composer Christopher Tin

Are you looking to deepen your music knowledge ?

I give private lessons for composition, orchestration, conducting and music theory.

I help preparing portfolios and applications for composition programs in the USA and elsewhere.

I teach remotely or in the Los Angeles area. First lesson free, then fee to be discussed.
