About Reid


Bio

I am a composer, jazz pianist, classical violinist, and film composer based in New York City. I am highly knowledgeable about many areas of music, including tonal theory, species counterpoint, advanced jazz theory, post-tonal theory (set theory, serialism, interval classes, process-oriented music), and much more. In my own music, I like to balance moments of extreme complexity with extreme simplicity.

I am a composer, jazz pianist, classical violinist, and film composer based in New York City. I am highly knowledgeable about many areas of music, including tonal theory, species counterpoint, advanced jazz theory, post-tonal theory (set theory, serialism, interval classes, process-oriented music), and much more. In my own music, I like to balance moments of extreme complexity with extreme simplicity.

During my time Jacobs School of Music, I taught courses on post-tonal theory and aural skills. At Brown University I taught species counterpoint, part writing, and tonal theory. I'm excited to help you nail down the fundamentals of music, understand challenging topics, and potentially move beyond the standard curriculum in creative and exciting ways.

An lastly, a few musicians that I'm inspired by: Gyorgy Ligeti, Miles Davis, SOPHIE, Beethoven, Cecil Taylor, D'Angelo, Thomas Ades, David Bowie, Earl Sweatshirt, Kate Soper.

I received my bachelor's degree in computer science from Brown University, where I studied a wide range of topics, including software engineering, computer systems, functional programming, security, and more. I have experience working with HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Java, React, C, Python, OCaml, Scala, and Assembly. I was a teaching assistant for Computer Systems, where we worked in C and Assembly to create complex projects. I have designed several websites.
