Who is Shaun and what got him into music?
I am a multi-faceted music composer with double decade experience in music theatre and composition. I pride myself in my niche
musical ability to extract the best of both worlds: North Indian and Western European Classical Music. I have extensive experience in
handling a wide variety of music and sound editing software to compose and synthesize music. A multi-instrumentalist at hand,
primarily on piano, guitar, Indian tabla, I am capable of both transcription and transposition, capitalizing on my strong background in
music theory. I am effective in arranging music that extracts the essence and mood of any particular scene of a musical production (e.g.
Short Film, Feature Film, Advertisement, Music Theatre). Ultimately, I am passionate about contributing to the creative and performing
arts world by leaving a legacy of unique creative and innovative musical essence.
Since the age of 10, I’ve considered composing to be my best friend. It brings me a sense of euphoria. I’ve managed to feature my works
in shows here in Australia and international acts.
My qualifications include a Grade 7 level in AMEB Piano and Grade 5 in AMEB Theory, Grade 8 in ABRSM Piano and Grade 5 in AMEB
Theory. I've completed the Yamaha Music Course Syllabus from Junior to intermediate Levels.
I also undertook studies with some of the greatest tutors in the world (Pt. Nayan Ghosh for my learning in tabla, the percussion
instrument North Indian Classical Music) .
My constant desire to expand musical horizons have led me to the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, where I graduated my Bachelor
Degree in Music Composition. Below are some sample of my works that I made whilst there. Do have a listen :)
