Hello,

My name is Mackenzie Neumann. I have decided to
embark on a journey into the world of music composition. I realized this was my
dream while attending Bowling Green State University. I originally was pursuing
a degree in Music Education. Though I enjoyed singing in the Bowling Green
State University's Men's Chorus, I realized pursing Music Education was not my
calling. It started when, instead of doing my vocal practice, I was writing
piano music for hours on end. I was at the point where I decided I wanted to
write music for a living, but needed to decide what music I wanted to write
for. VIDEO GAMES!! That was the answer I realized, because I had been playing
video games ever since I could press a button on the nintendo controller (Mario
fell into the same pit for a long time...). I have always enjoyed listening to
instrumental and video game music, so I decided it was the best form of music I
knew I could write (at least half decently..). So, I wrote some music for a
scary mansion feel and It went "ok" I thought. My roommate at the
time decided that we should take a tour of the new building that had just been
finished that month. This building was dedicated to the arts and music. We went
later at night and while we were walking around, we heard noises coming from
one of the rooms. We found students working on a video game they had been
designing! Perfect opportunity to see if my music was good enough to impress
video game designers. I showcased my music to them and they loved the pieces.
They offered me a spot on their team for next year and It was then when I
realized this is my true passion in life. Now, I am attending Full Sail
University for a degree in Music Production to become the Media Composer I want
to be. I have been enjoying the journey so far and am excited to continue
enjoying it for the rest of my life!
