“I write music. That’s what I do”

As obvious as it sounds, this quote highlights Myles´ love and interest of many different styles of music and genre - be it jazz, classical, pop, hip-hop, film soundtrack, world music or a mixture of all these.

 

Myles studied jazz composition and arranging at WAAPA under Graeme Lyall, where he explored his love of jazz and big band music. Graduating in 1999 he went on to complete a Masters degree in Studio Jazz Writing, studying with Gary Lindsay at the University of Miami.

 

After spending time at the Henry Mancini Institute, in Los Angeles in 2002, he taught composition and arranging for 3 years at the International College of Music in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia followed by music classes at the University of Notre Dame (Fremantle) and UWA Extension from 2007 to 2011.

 

Myles has written music for various student film and theatre projects at Notre Dame, which included a production of Clark in Sarajevo. He scored music for West Australian production company Siamese' documentary Kuru, shown on SBS and has composed music for advertising firms Marketforce, The Brand Agency and 303Lowe. This work can be seen on the demo reel.

 

In 2010-2011 Myles worked as production coordinator for Eastman Theatre
Productions
and was music director for the music workshop of All Above Board. Recent work has included composing music for The Graduate Dramatic Society production of Shakespeare’s Love’s Labour’s Lost and a commissioned work for the opening of the new performing arts building at St. Hilda’s Anglican School for Girls.

 

In addition to music Myles is an avid fan of photography, travel, dancing, hanging out at cafes with friends and watching DVDs on his small-but-exciting home theatre system.
