In the artist’s words: Describe one of your earliest musical memories in detail. When I was a young child my father introduced me to classical music. It was all I listened to - Mozart, Bach, Beethoven, Haydn. This shaped my melodic sense and can be heard in all my compositions no matter what style I am writing in.
