I am a Composition Scholar at California State University Northridge, rated as one of the best film score composition universities in the world. There, I worked on numerous award-winning projects and senior theses for film festivals at USC and UCLA, with my work premiering in International Film Festivals in Korea and Australia.
I was also the recipient of the 2016 Igor Paltsev Scholarship Award awarded to emerging composers who demonstrate the strongest potential. Having studied under the tutelage of orchestrators Neal Desby (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Benoit Grey (Assasin’s Creed: Brotherhood) and composer Scott Glasgow (Captain America: Civil War), I have garnered a plethora of experience producing for a variety of genres and media outlets.
If you're serous about composition, I can help take your skills to the next level, whether it be orchestration, conducting, and even music production (from recording, mixing, etc). If you choose to study with me, you will have opportunities to get your pieces played by string quartets, bands, and possibly orchestras as well!
As for teaching experience, I have taught all levels of music theory, piano, and guitar for the last 5 years. In college, I was President and Founder of a highly active music teaching organization, that garnered over 30+ active members a week. We helped and tutored all students of all ages (from 9 to 65 years old), in musical theory and with instruments. I have helped all of my students achieve their goals, whether they have been: achieve higher grades, become proficient at an instrument, or even to just play as a hobby!
I can easily provide references and I am positively sure I can help you and your needs with music, as well as making it a fun learning experience! :) I'm a very open, kind, and patient person, and aim to teach in a way that is both engaging and efficient. I love what I do and I love what I teach, structuring complex information to be more easily understandable.
I'd love to work with you and your specific needs and am looking forward to an exciting time! Shoot me a message!
