NYCC Composer Profile

Paul Aljian

Although primarily self taught in composition and improvisation, PAUL ALJIAN studied music theory as an undergraduate and continued with additional study of music theory and percussion performance. He spent years freelancing part time as a percussionist/drummer for musical theater and other music venues, and later performed on hand drums in concerts with classical and traditional middle eastern ensembles. Having recently ended a career as a graphic designer, Paul has finally had enough time to pursue composition productively, concentrating on chamber music using standard orchestral instruments.
