Peter Schwartz
Composer, orchestrator, arranger, pianist, synthesist, and musical director, Peter began classical piano studies at age 5 and went on to earn a Bachelors Degree in piano performance from Manhattan School of Music. Not long afterwards, MIDI made its entrée into the world of music and Peter immersed himself in understanding the technology, programming his own MIDI software, and even designing some of his own MIDI hardware devices. Combined with his keen interest in synthesizers, his experiences with music tech eventually led to a position as a product specialist for New England Digital (Synclavier), and afterward as a sound programmer and synthesizer design consultant for Korg. Meanwhile, he began to carve a path into the music business as a session keyboardist and arranger, eventually building a client roster that reads like a Who's Who of A-list pop and dance artists. Peter has also served as musical director for David Bowie, The Pet Shop Boys, Enya, Madonna, Hanson, and many others. In more recent years he has endeavored to make his mark as a film score composer, adding Disneytoons, Warner Bros., Fox, and Mattel to his filmography. Peter resides in Los Angeles with his wife Sharon, dogs Boing and Loosi, a bass clarinet and a bassoon.
