Christopher Myczkowski

2nd Prize Winner 2022

Music has always been a part of my life in one form or another. Phantom of the Opera was the initial thing that ignited my passion for music. I am self taught on the piano and played bassoon through much of my school years. About 4 years ago, I was listening to the score from “Hook” and a new passion came to life, composing. I am grateful to have a wife that supports my passion and urged me to start composing. I am grateful for the many composers who have shaped my style and from whom I’ve learned a great deal through listening. I am grateful to all of the incredible musicians and companies that have made samples possible and allowed my ideas to come to fruition. And I am grateful to all of the YouTubers who have given countless tips on composing, scoring to film, mixing, mastering, etc.
