Beatmaster J was introduced to the world of music at the young age of five. With a piano in reach he would listen to music and repeat what he heard without the knowledge of how to read music. He developed an ear for sound and furthered his abilities by playing trumpet at the age of nine. For the next six years, he continued to play trumpet in school learning what he could about reading music and performing.
At the age of 14, he yearned for change and felt a natural draw towards percussion. From the moment he sat at a drum set he knew this was his place. To this day, he continues to play drums and percussion having played in numerous bands and performing over 100 times.
Simultaneously while learning drums, he began to find new ways of expressing his creativity. He began to find joy in writing computer based music and wrote his first song at the age of 14. He would spend hours listening to other music and being inspired leading him to write numerous more songs over the years. Eventually he progressed into using hardware synthesizers and midi sequencing leading to a whole new creative outlet.
Beatmaster J has written over 25 songs and continues to write more to this day. Examples of his work can be found below. Influenced by several forms of electronic music, Beatmaster J never ceases to be inspired.
