Brian LaGuardia - Composer, Orchestrator, Arranger

About

website

Since I was three years old, conducting to John Williams on my stereo in diapers, I have had a mad love affair with music in all its forms. That passion has sustained me through a varied and prolific musical career that has ranged from film scoring to arranging and orchestrating and everything in between.

I was fortunate enough to be selected as one of twenty students internationally for  the 2014-2015 Scoring for Motion Pictures and Television Graduate program at USC’s Thorton School of Music. Ever since then, I have had the privilege of learning from some of the greatest talents in music history, such as Alan Silvestri (Back to the Future, The Avengers), Bruce Broughton (Silverado, The Rescuers Down Under), Christopher Young (Spider Man 3, Hellraiser), Austin Wintory (Journey, Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate, Abzu, The Banner Saga), Garry Schyman (Bioshock, Shadow of Mordor), conductors Robort Olson (Mahlerfest Orchestra), Devin Patrick Hughes, Vincent C LaGuardia, Jr and Juliard Trained Pianist Jamie Shaak. I have also contributed to professional recording sessions at Capitol Records, Warner Brothers Studios, Sonic Fuel Studios, the sadly late Bridge recording studio and the John Williams Scoring Stage on productions like Assasin’s Creed: Syndicate, Marvel’s Agent Carter, Sausage Party, The War With Grandpa and The Boss. I have also arranged for professional orchestras such as the Colorado Symphony and the West Australia Symphony Orchestra.

I can be (and have been) a copyist, an arranger/orchestrator, a composer, a percussionist, sound designer, audio implementation engineer, music editor and even software engineer – but I always welcome new opportunities to learn more and master my craft. Learning something new every day is essential to me, no matter what stage my career is in or how many years of experience I have under my belt.

So whether you would like to ask about a specific work, collaborate on an upcoming project (whether you are a game programmer, musician or director) or simply say hello, I am always eager to meet new creative minds!
