Thumbtack Spotlight

Bray Ghiglia

(1 review)

What do you love about your job?

As a teacher, I love the moment when my students have that beautiful feeling of playing a melody on their instrument for the first time. As a composer, I love it when a client sees his or her film for the first time with the perfect music that heightens the emotional impact of each scene.

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

My teaching came from word of mouth. I started with one student, and then his friend came to me as well. That was twenty years ago. Composing had always been a dream when I was doing gigs with guys like Randy Meisner and Rick Roberts. I decided to do something about it, so I went to the UCLA film school and then got a degree from Cal State Northridge.

Describe your most memorable project.

I have just finished a project called "The Peace Experience." It will be memorable because it has the potential to change the hearts and minds of people all over the world.
