We were honoured to have Dani Howard visit us for an IB workshop in mid-March to share insights in the music field. Graduating from at SIS in 2011, Dani studied composition at the Royal College of Music in London.
Dani is now an orchestral composer, with a focus on film and television. She shared with our students her life as a composer, where there are often tight time constraints for coming up with a lengthy music piece for dramas and movies. At times, she has to turn non-digital draft pieces with few guidelines into live orchestra pieces with great dynamics.
Dani also shared composing techniques, listened to compositions from students and gave encouraging feedback. We hope to listen to more prodigious music pieces from her and wish her an even greater career in the future.
