Ben has been composing, editing and recording music for the past 12 years.
Upon learning about his award, Ben explains that he chose to study at MI because “MI is the best and the most practical school in the Los Angeles area, and it’s where I can earn a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Composition. I hope to bring honor and excellence to MI during my time here. ”
During his studies, he plans to focus on “taking my composing, editing, arranging, mixing, mastering , and musical idea implementation skills to the next level. I hope to learn how to be a leader and a unique composer that writes music that stands out from the rest.”
After MI, Ben’s career aspirations are to “compose music until the last day of my life. To be able to support myself financially with music, and write at least one composition that will change the world. I also want to produce and release an album.” He adds, “I want to work at the studio as a Studio Engineer, Producer, and Composer and to be involved at the music process on all levels.”
