Shaun Crawford

Shaun Crawford is a South African composer of film music and symphonic works. His influences range from late romantic and modern composers, to the rich scores of the Hollywood tradition and beyond. He is steadily growing in demand as a composer, orchestrator and arranger in the film music community and has achieved local acclaim for his concert music.

Shaun holds three tertiary degrees, including honours and Master's degrees. He studied jazz piano under Professor Darius Brubeck, son of the legendary jazz pianist Dave Brubeck, and later spent three years under the instruction of internationally celebrated composer Professor Hendrik Hofmeyr while completing his Master's degree in composition.

In 2013 Shaun participated in New York University's ASCAP Foundation Film Scoring Workshop in Memory of Buddy Baker, where he was named one of six up-and-coming "composers to watch." This year he heads to Hollywood to attend the ASCAP TV & Film Scoring Workshop with Richard Bellis after he was accepted as one of the 12 participants.
