What to Expect
I would love to write background music for short videos or films, maybe even local films, commercials, online videos, etc. I typically write music fairly quickly. Depending on my mood and the unfriendly case of writer's block, of course. If I'm in the zone, I can write a 3 minute piece in about an hour. This usually includes 3 instruments, piano, a string of choice, and a wind of choice. For more complex songs, or when I get crazy and endeavor to create a film score, I would say anywhere from one week to one month. I like to tell a story with my music, versus writing radio hits. I'm open to suggestions and ideas. I also wouldn't mind collaborating on a piece if the project required it.
Like many musicians, I live and breathe music. I am a mother, wife, a LDS. I dabble in just about every aspect of the arts. I grew up a competitive gymnast, dancer, and joined performing arts groups. I sang and took piano lessons from my single digits, and composed my first piano solo at eight. It was mildly impressive. I became a professional cosmetologist at seventeen. I started writing at 19 and completed 5 unpublished novels. I enjoy oil painting and photography. A true artist at heart, however, music has always been my greatest joy. While writing radio songs sounds great, it has never been my forte. (Pun intended) I am much better creating 'film score' sounds. I have attended college for my bachelors in Music, but I have not completed it. Mostly, my music comes from the heart, as it did when I was a child. My family would tell you I hear symphonies in my head, and it is spot on. They keep me awake at night and inspire me throughout the day. I would love to expand my resume and get my music heard by those willing to collaborate artistic projects.
Additional Booking Notes
I have a keyboard I like to use. I have a software that allows me to transfer my music into sheet form, or edit it. I do not have any video equipment, however, so if I am writing to fit a video clip, film, etc, I would need a way to view the reel. I also don't have anything beyond a simply CD burner to transfer my music onto a CD/DVD. I am not a tec-tard, I am a musician. I find them to be completely opposite.
