Hi! I’m Leah. I’m a composer, teacher, and musician.
I began my creative musical life as a singer/songwriter. I still compose through singing, and will put text to most of my music even if it is purely instrumental. As a result, my music is very lyrical and linearly driven.
My music also tends to be super referential. I usually draw from many seemingly unrelated musical and non-musical sources and weave these disparate ideas together through form and repetition. The idea is not for the listener to be aware of or understand all of the ideas within the piece, but to take the piece as an aggregate, gaining something from the whole.
If you’d like me to write some music for you, please contact me!
