I grew up with a fascination for soundtracks.  I liked them before I was even 10, with Star Wars coming out when I was 7.  I just did not know at the time, I was listening to the music  critically.  That is, I was listening to hear all the parts and trying to figure out how it all worked.  By the time the Empire Strikes Back came out, I was a full fledged Soundtrack junkie.  I ended up playing trumpet in junior high and high school.  I started to learn to play keyboards when I was in my 20’s.

It is almost 40 years later and I am still fascinated by film scores.  My favorite composers are Hans Zimmer, John Williams, and some Ennio Morricone.  There are just some amazing soundtracks out there.
