How I got into film music
The first time I fell in love with music was with the age of 4. I think it was because I saw someone playing violin on TV, so I couldn't help but beg my parents to allow me to start playing this instrument, too. During my time in high school, I also got a keyboard and I started to fool around with these terrible sounds, creating and even recording some "songs". However, back then, I never really thought about getting serious with music. That was because of my other passion: film. I wanted to become a director. Wait, did I? Really?
I started to really think about what I wanted to do with my life and what fits me best. Loving music and film, I had to decide what was more important to me. Finally, it hit me: what about becoming a film composer? That was it! Now I could combine my passion for music and for film. From that point on my journey as a film composer began, and still is going on. I have so much more to learn, but I love it! I hope I can share this passion with you through the projects which I was blessed to be a part of!
What happened since then
In summer 2014 I started my pre-studies at musicube academy in Bonn, Germany. The "Basic Filmmusic Composer" course took about one year and helped me to prepare for my entrance exam at ArtEZ University of the Arts in Arnhem, Netherlands.
Luckily I got accepted, so in September 2015 I started my "Composition for Film & Theatre" studies at the ArtEZ Jazz & Pop Conservatory. During the 4 years I spent there I deepened my knowledge about film music, music theory and everything else that has to do with it thanks to my wonderful teachers and fellow students. In 2019, I finally finished my studies with a Bachelor of Arts degree!
Since then, I'm working as a freelance film composer and am blessed to be a part of many different projects.
