Biography
Timothy Brown’s music has been influenced greatly by the Italian film composer Ennio Morricone and also by the composer Luciano Berio. His music is noted for it’s “immediate emotional impact” and it’s roots in the neo-romantic style. His traditional formal structural elements are embedded in his wide array of compositions which includes orchestral, ballet, and chamber works and specifically music written for the piano and pedagogical purposes. He did his undergraduate studies at Bowling Green State University and received his masters degree from the University of North Texas where he studied piano with Adam Wodnicki, and music composition with Newel Kay Brown. He later was a recipient of a research fellowship from the Royal Holloway, University of London where he did his post-graduate studies in music composition and orchestration studying with the English composer, Brian Lock. He later continued his research at the well known “Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia” in Rome, Italy.

He leads a very active career as an exclusive composer for the FJH Music Co. in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida with over one hundred compositions now in print. His works are frequently performed throughout North America and Europe and at numerous international venues such as “The World Piano Pedagogy Conference,” the “Festival Internacional de Musica de Tecla Espanola” and the MTNA national convention. His music has been performed by concert artist Elaine Funaro on National Public Radio , and most recently at the Spoleto Music Festival, and the Library of Congress Concert Series in Washington D.C.
