About Me (Must include biographical information about you as a composer):
I have been involved in music since the age of 4 when I began to take piano lessons. It wasn't until I begged my parents to allow me to play the guitar that I seriously took an interest in music, obsessed even. For the next 10 years I began working on my skills as a guitarist, eventually hopping over to the music production side of things where I began writing/recording heavier progressive music. When I was extremely young and learning piano at first, my ear was heavily attracted to the orchestral music that accompanied film. It wasn't until later when I realized names like John Williams, Alan Silvestri, James Horner, Danny Elfman, and even Hans Zimmer would have a major impact on the music that I was recording. My heavier music began to incorporate orchestral elements, and eventually I began investing my time and energy into strictly composing for the orchestra(sadly this only involves virtual instruments, but I wish to work with real musicians one day). This past year I have been extremely fortunate enough to be involved in short films and also composing music to accompany dance. Although I am quite thankful for the ear that I have, I would like to further my knowledge and also become more familiar with theory and harmony. Music is endless, and within the last several years I realized that music has been part of me; it has sculpted who I am today. Composing music is something I enjoy doing, and I can only wish to become better as time goes on, and also develop great relationships with those who share the same passion as I do.
