I love connecting with aspiring musicians. We can use this time to discuss your career or mine. I enjoy exposing students firsthand to how a composer sees his everyday duties and which priorities are most important.

We will use this time to compose together! I draw inspiration from working with brilliant aspiring musicians and love to share any knowledge that I can. This experience should be energizing for both of us! Feel free to upload a file for me to review prior to our call.

Co-composition follow-up session

Duration : 60 mins
After we compose music together, it may make sense for you to work on some things on your own, and then we can come back together for this working session to continue fine-tuning.

[2 Sessions] Let's compose together

Duration : 180 mins
This session is the same as the other session intended for us to compose together, but is split in to two weeks. Composition can be a time-demanding process and this will enable you to spend some time working on your own after our first discussion. So, we will spend a couple of hours on the first call and then about an hour on the following call, which we will schedule together during our introduction.
