As a composition student at Berklee, I feel fortunate to get to study what I’m passionate about and live in a world of music. This summer I want to continue to grow as a composer and as a performer. To be able to be able to participate in this program would allow me to meet new people be exposed to new ideas. I love working with chamber ensembles, both as a performer and composer. At this stage of my compositional development, I really would like to focus on my technique and get different perspectives on writing. As a bassist, I always am looking to perform with as many different people in as many different styles as possible. Bass is so versatile and functions in so many different ways as a rhythm instrument, string instrument and solo instrument. I would like to explore these roles more in depth.
