About Will

I have a Bachelor's degree in Music from Berklee College of Music and completed half of a one year Masters program in film composition, but was forced to leave early for a professional project. At Berklee I graduated with a 3.4 GPA.

I have been composing music professionally for 8 years. Currently, am a working composer and music producer based in Los Angeles. I'm a graduate of the Berklee College of Music and for the past few years I have working full time making music for everything from ringtones to pop songs to feature films. Some recent credits include the pilot for Harold and Kumar Animated, produced songs for network TV shows Wicked City and Criminal Minds, and the web series Foodborne for production company Monkey Deux.

I have previously done private tutoring for a handful of beginner students in music production and theory and with one have continued to provide tips and pointers for one of those students long after the lessons ended. I am also available for instrument instruction, music history general music or film related needs. My wealth of experience spanning across the entertainment industry gives me valuable added insight on top of any tutoring instruction.

My main subjects are Music History, Composition, Music Production, Music Theory, Bass Guitar instruction, Film, Film History, Screenwriting, Film Scoring, Music for Media. Please feel free to contact me with any questions about subjects or scheduling.
