Musical Journey I [January 14, 2018]

Hello all. I decided to start a series of blog posts titled “Musical Journey”. After graduating from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music (SFCM) I figured it would be good to share a musicians journey on how to make a living and also most importantly, a life with music. I’ll be sharing what has been going on in my life.

Currently, I am involved in two small companies and working remotely. These include the Azzy Project with Celtic Dragon Studio. We have made some progress and have featured out game in a convention in Ireland. I hope the project kickstarts and we can start seeing success soon.

Although I love composing music (in fact I actually prefer to do that), I have been hired as a Sound FX artists for Fenrir Studios for their Darkstorm Project. Although I have acquired much Sound FX knowledge with the professors at SFCM (especially the wonderful Dren Mcdonald), this will be my first time doing Sound FX for real, instead of just class exercises. Hopefully, my work turns out satisfactory. I look forward to improving through this project.

As a musician, we always have the inevitable day job. Although I would love to just hole up in my studio and compose all day, it’s important to make a steady living. I’ll be teaching in the Santa Clara area for piano with a few fellow musicians who are world class. Although I have confidence as a piano teacher, I am looking forward to learning more in not just maintaining my piano skills, but also teaching children a skill they can take pride in, whether or not they choose to use it as a career or hobby.

Well, that conclude Musical Journey I. I hope you all have enjoyed reading this post. If there are other topics you wish for me to discuss I am glad to share with you all. Until next time!
