Michelle Packman

Multi-string instrumentalist and string arranger

Hey there! Thanks for checking out my info! I have been working in the music industry in Hollywood for the last ten years or so. My expertise is in all things strings! I have degrees in Cello Performance from the Cole Conservatory, and also Contemporary Writing & Production at Berklee College of Music in Boston, where I concentrated on arranging and production for strings in contemporary music. Since school, I have worked with Bleeding Fingers for a title track composed by Hans Zimmer and Anže Rosman, Eminem, Inon Zur, Camilla Cabello, Troye Sivan, Trans-Siberian Orchestra, League of Legends, and more.

I can work with as little as an audio file, but every little bit helps. Please include tempo information, length of the project, and details about your vision. Good questions to provide answers too in your initial message might be: Do you picture solo strings or string section? Do you like a single line, or would you like some overdubbing? Are you looking to create an intimate space, or a vast, symphonic space? Are the parts simple, or are they intricate? That way I can give you a quote based on the prodcution requirements right off the bat!

I have a professional studio in Los Angeles, CA. My main DAWs are Logic Pro and Pro Tools. I love microtech-gefell mics, and my main mics are the MG M300. My studio space is treated and I promise to deliver great raw audio with as little room noise as possible. I can record really intimate mono or stereo solo instruments, or I can combine many layers of violins, violas, and cellos, pairs with my Spitfire symphonic, chamber, and soaring strings libraries to create lush, full orchestral arrangements. Revisions are not a problem at all, and I won’t stop until my clients and collaborators are 100% happy. I am a strong communicator.
