William Stanbro, is a Los Angeles based composer who has cultivated his musical and technological talents to pursue his career as a film and T.V. composer, music editor, orchestrator, arranger, and conductor. His love of music and ability to adapt and compose a large variety of genres and styles of music has allowed him to work on a wide range of films and musical opportunities.
Growing up in Los Alamos, New Mexico, William knew music would play a central role in his life. Being surrounded by music as a child, William learned to play a variety of instruments such as piano, French horn, guitar, drums, bass, and he soon found a love for singing. He received vocal training from Dr. Candace Magner, who developed his voice as well as inspired his interest in operatic and jazz singing. Wanting to get more into writing music, William struck up a relationship with professional composer and arranger, Joe Cox. Through composition lessons with Joe, William found a deep connection with film music. At age 17, William was composing, arranging, and conducting orchestral and choral works and decided to pursue music as a career.
In 2008 William was accepted into Berklee College of Music, where he received a Bachelor of Music, Magna Cum Laude, in Film Scoring. Working with professionals in the film industry such as Emmy nominee Sheldon Mirowitz and Primetime Emmy winner Dan Carlin, William learned how to read a scene and determine the most appropriate style of music needed. He also learned the most cutting-edge technical tools that are available to composers today.
William relocated to Los Angeles, California in August 2011 where he is a freelance composer as well as working with such composers as Yuval Ron (West Bank Story, Breaking The Maya Code, Sweet Valley High), iZLER (Revenge), and Peter Goloub (These Amazing Shadows, Wordplay, The Great Debaters).
