Hello, my name's Erica, and I like to compose jazz music. I'm still in high school, but I'm a senior and I'm applying to some music schools. I really like the works of Maria Schneider (if you want to add that to the list of composers), and she may just be my number one influence as of right now. I really like her woodwind doubling that she uses in the sax section, and her harmonies are complex and really beautiful. If you visit her website, she also has some clips about her composition process, in case if anyone is interested. You can also order scores from her website. It's powered by ArtistShare.
