Overview

I'm a film composer by trade, but I love teaching as well. I love sharing my passion for music with others. I have a BM from Appalachian State University in piano performance and music theory/composition. I also have an MFA in music composition for the screen from Columbia College Chicago. I studied abroad in Ireland for a summer and learned traditional Irish music. I've been playing piano and composing since I was a young child, and picked up folk instruments along the way. Folk music has been a constant source of joy in my life, and I am continually learning more about it. Music is what gets me out of bed in the morning!

Experience

Composer's Assistant

Sep 2014 - May 2016
Blue Police Box Music

I was a composer's assistant while attending graduate school in Chicago. I wrote additional music, worked on sheet music preparation, recorded live instruments, and made virtual instruments. I worked with this composer until I moved to Los Angeles.

Accordion Teacher

Connor G Cook Music

I taught accordion lessons for a year in North Carolina while attending undergraduate college. I had a handful of dedicated students, whom I sadly had to part with when I moved to Chicago for graduate school. I am looking forward to teaching accordion lessons again.

Professor

Jan 2012 - Jun 2014
Appalachian State University

I taught a music class at my Alma Mater, Appalachian State University. I started a traditional Irish music course at my college, and as there was nobody to teach it, I was able to teach the course. I am very passionate about traditional Irish music, and it was a true joy to teach the course for two years.
