Peter Schwartz, composer, orchestrator, arranger, pianist, synthesist, and musical director, began piano studies at age 5 and went on to earn a degree in piano performance from Manhattan School of Music. It wasn't long afterward that he began working as a product specialist for New England Digital (Synclavier) and also as a sound programmer and design consultant for Korg. Meanwhile, Peter began to pave his way into the music business, and as a session keyboardist and arranger, eventually amassing a dizzying number of A-list artists to his client roster and discography. Peter has served as musical director for David Bowie, Madonna, The Pet Shop Boys, Enya, and many more. In more recent years, he has endeavored to make his mark as a composer for TV and film, adding Fox, Disneytoons, Warner Bros., Mattel, and The Gates Foundation to his filmography. Peter resides in Los Angeles with his wife Sharon, dogs Boing and Loosie, a bass clarinet and a bassoon.
