About Me (Must include at least one paragraph of biographical information about you as a composer) - blank or minimal answers on this line will cause your request to be rejected. Include a link to your website if you have one.
Undergraduate student of Music Theory and Piano Performance at Furman University. I love the music of Bach, Barber, Brahms, Gershwin, Mozart, Poulenc, Rzewski, Saariaho, Schoenberg, Strauss, Stravinsky and others.

I try to approach any composer and genre on their own terms as their have been many times that I have "written off" an entire body of work only to be surprised by an example from it at a later date. As a result I tend to appreciate many different types of music, ranging from the most accessible to the most abstract.
