"Thanks for the kind words regarding my music. Most of the film stuff I write is at the guitar for some reason, even though I am mainly a percussionist and pianist. Something very intimate about the guitar. Keep writing my friend. -Peter"

About Me (Must include biographical information about you as a composer):
Peter Scartabello (b. 1972, Providence Rhode Island) started composing at age 9. His early interest in computer composition brought about his first major work for orchestra and synthesizer in 1985-86, entitled Drochthamion Demonica. From 1990-91 he studied music theory and composition at Manhattanville College NY, where he also played percussion in the Manhattanville Symphony Orchestra. In 1991 he completed Two Symphonic Poems Op. 1, for orchestra. In that same year he studied percussion with George Goneconto at Rhode Island College. From 1992-95 Mr. Scartabello studied composition with Dary John Mizelle and Alvin Brehm at Purchase College NY, where he later received a BFA in classical composition. In 1993, his piece Confined Infinity (piano, flute, percussion and double bass), was performed at a concert at Purchase College under the artistic direction of renowned percussionist Raymond DeRoches. Mr. Scartabello also took part in the 1995 Purchase College Computer Music Forum, where his piece Electro-Magma Op. 3 (bass clarinet and tape) was performed. The piece was also broadcast on The Latest Score, 92.1 WOMR FM, Provincetown MA.. In 2004, the piece Threshold (5 Bb clarinets) was commissioned by clarinettist Sarah Ladd and was world premiered later that year by her ensemble at McGill University in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. In 2006, the Warwick Symphony Orchestra (Rhode Island) commissioned Mr. Scartabello to compose his Symphony No. 2 to honour their 40th aniversary. Later that year guitarist William Maker commissioned Mr. Scartabello to write the piece Difference Engine for two classical guitars. The piece was premiered that year by William Maker and Eric Christiansen at Roger Williams University in Bristol, Rhode Island. Mr. Scartabello is currently living in South Kingstown Rhode Island and teaches percussion and piano at the Knapp School of Music in Peace Dale Rhode Island.

I've been out of college since 2008--- I actually quit music from my junior year of college to a few months ago! I was working in marketing at a firm.. but realized I missed music too much! I formed the orchestra (http://www.thenewyorkchambervirtuosi.com) and now getting back into writing and playing. You can send me your quintet at jlsibelman@gmail.com I look forward to checking it out!

lol- thanks for the advice-- the one nice thing is that I do have an orchestra, and they are all about my age range so we are all friends.. so if I ever need a HUGE favor, I have people that can help me!

Where are you? I love to read/perform pieces!
