Need a gift for a gifted musician?
I am an American recently graduated from the University of Michigan with a bachelors degree in music composition. I started learning piano at age 6 and have been composing ever since. At age 10 I began studying the clarinet. I played clarinet in woodwind ensembles and orchestras, and also played jazz saxophone. My first major influences were Beethoven, and Swing: especially Benny Goodman. I love classical music, including late Beethoven, Chopin, Mahler, Richard Strauss, Tchaikovsky, Berg's Violin Concerto, Prokofiev, Rachmaninoff, and Shostakovich, as well as jazz including Benny Goodman, Cannonball Adderley, Dave Brubeck. I also greatly enjoy the music of Chris Thile (bluegrass), Inti Illimani, Bob Marley, and Bela Fleck.
If you are interested in my scores, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for checking out my music!
