Benjamin Cole
LVA Graduate 2006
Major: Choir/Piano

 

I graduated in 2006 with majors in Choir and Piano performance. After graduating, I served a 2 year mission for my church in Peru. In 2012 I attended the Berklee College of Music in Boston and graduated in 2015 with a degree in Scoring Music for Film. I then moved to Los Angeles to begin pursuing a career in film music and started a 1 year masters program in Screen Scoring at USC in 2016. I graduated in 2017 after completing my program and an internship at Remote Control Productions, Hanz Zimmer’s studio in Santa Monica. 

 

With a family of a wife and two kids, I eventually moved to Salt Lake City, Utah to provide more stability for my family. In 2018 I began teaching piano full time at East High School, where they filmed High School Musical, and I am still working there presently. 

 

In my spare time I continue to score films, having finished the score for my first feature film in June, which will be released winter '23/'24. I teach private piano lessons, produce and release my own music, with 5 albums out so far, lead my own Jazz Quartet, and I even work as a certified Piano Technician. Music is my life and I love every second of it. When I’m not teaching I’m composing. When I’m not composing I’m performing. When I’m not performing I’m tuning pianos. Shout out to the class of 2006... and go LVA!
