Hi, my name is Brandon Fiechter and I am twenty three years old. I have been interested in music since I was about fourteen, and I started composing piano songs when I was fifteen. Throughout the years, I have listened to many different genres of music, including Celtic, new age, Christian, Japanese pop, and medieval music, as I not only enjoyed them, but I also realized that the more various types of music I listened to, the better I would be at creating the type of songs I listened to. I believe this principle applies for everyone, and so the more Celtic music you listen to, for instance, the better you will be at composing a Celtic song. In any case, I believe strongly in listening to music, as it generally makes it easier to compose songs.
