Hey everyone,So with the exception of a couple Billy Joel ballads, I've come to realize that the only music that can really make a grown man like myself tear up is a moving orchestral piece. The sad…Continue

"Michael, I fully agree with your choice - this is some of Dvorak's best writing and Renee makes a very excellent interpretation of it....very moving."

"It's probably the last part of Barber's Knoxville Summer of 1915. I can't explain to myself why it should affect me. Leontyne Price's recording in particular brings me out in goosebumps.  ."

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.
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.
