Public Profile
Igor Stravinsky had a great influence on me while I was in music school at Sacramento State Uni. Though I love a lot of atonal music, as a composer I am not overly experimental in my style. At age 13 in Lagos Nigeria, I started music theory study under the tutoring of my uncle (Ayo Bankole Jr.), who was unfortunately murdered about a year after. I did not return to formal musical training until age 22, after having moved from Africa to California two years prior and changed my major from Business to Music against the wishes of my parent. At Sacramento State Uni., I majored in voice under the teaching of Luis Clayson (Dramatic Tenor). I sang the lead to a one-act opera "The Jumping Frog of Calaveras County", Sang with Sacramento Opera for about four years and with San Jose Opera for about 6 years. My compositions include 5 orchestral pieces, 1 Opera (in progress), several arts songs, a theatrical piece (My Shoe) and several piano works.[profile]www.newmusicworks.org[/profile]
