Welcome to our 98th Toronto Ravel Study!
TORONTO RAVEL STUDY is back in-person at The Tranzac Club
This Month’s Guest
CASEY SOKOL is unable to attend March 7 and will be re-scheduled.
Amin Bhatia and Ari Posner are multi-award winning screen composers. They have also worked together for years in a very successful and productive partnership. In addition, Ari had the great fortune to be a student of Casey Sokol’s at York University, and will share some of what he learned from Casey about structured improvisation and composition – a ‘warm-up’ for Casey’s return engagement.
They will also share their thoughtful approach to composing for the screen, and working in partnership. This will be a relaxed and informal conversation between colleagues and friends.
We are grateful for Ari and Amin taking time out of very busy schedules to pitch in for Casey at the last minute.
Oh – and they’ve both been nominated for their umpteenth Canadian Screen Awards.

NEW ADVENTURES IN LISTENING – Film clips from “On The Waterfront” and “Ryan” are posted on the “Study Materials” page for download. With the sound removed, they can be scored as an exercise, and brough in to “Adventures in Listening” for feedback and analysis. Adventures in Listening is a unique opportunity to get unbiased and honest feedback on your ‘in-progress’ or experimental work from a community of your professional peers. Because it is anonymous, it is a risk-free environment. Whether you are an emerging composer or an experienced one, and whether your work is for concert or screen, I encourage you to take advantage of this invaluable resource.
