Brian May Scholarship

I am incredibly honoured to be the recipient of the Brian May Scholarship, which means that in September I'll be moving to New York to undertake a 2-year Masters degree in Scoring for Film and Multimedia at NYU. This is an award for emerging Australian film composers, given once every two years thanks to the trust fund set up by the late Brian May. Not to be confused with the guitarist from Queen, Brian May was one of Australia's most prolific composers for the screen, scoring classics like Gallipoli, Mad Max 1 & 2, and providing the theme for the television show Countdown. Since film music has always been a huge passion of mine, it's incredibly exciting to take some time to streamline my goals and really have a crack at the big time!
