Ever since I was a teenager, my passion has been composing!
I always have room for the right student
I have composed about a hundred pieces that have been performed by musicians in concerts, and a similar number of pieces using virtual orchestras. These pieces of music have been used in films, videos, and theater productions.
Growing up, I went through a number of less-than-satisfactory music teachers. Until, I finally started lessons from a wonderful jazz pianist. Besides learning to play the piano, he also taught me music theory, improvisation, notation, arranging, and composing. As a result, I understand what students need to learn, to fully enjoy making music!
My specialty is composing for live musicians, and for virtual orchestras. Nowadays there is a big need to use technology to be more productive. Over the years, I researched all the best tools for efficiently getting my musical ideas into a concrete form. And–most importantly–making ideas sound good! I can help people reach the same levels, to create beautiful music!
