Jesse Voogt is an award-winning composer who spent his early childhood in Aruba and the Netherlands, but has since lived in the USA. He studied music composition for a year at the ArtEZ conservatoire in the charming city of Zwolle, the Netherlands. Primarily a violinist, much of his work involves stringed instruments, starting with the Sinfonia he wrote for his high school string orchestra. His music ranges from works for solo piano, solo violin, and solo guitar to works for a full orchestra, and while it is often neo-Romantic, sometimes neo-Baroque, and occasionally pop-classical, his music is always driven by a strong sense of melody. Besides music, he also studied computer science, has a degree in architecture, and has built a career as a web developer - but while he has many interests, creating music is his constant and true passion.
