On a sunny day in San Jose, California, a mother stumbled across her three-year-old boy suddenly crying on the sofa. She didn't know why since he wasn't hungry or tired until he pointed at the tape recorder playing music in the background.
Aaron Gao is a music composer and producer at the Peabody Conservatory as well as an assistant music director for New Style Media Group. He began his journey studying piano at the age of six and composed his first piece three years later. Towards the end of elementary school, he was introduced to DAW software and learned to produce music ever since. Having a strong background in multiple disciplines and music genres, he joined the Peabody conservatory and became one of the few advanced students to skip levels in all three disciplinary courses and take classes with those a year above them. He has collaborated on films produced by the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) and featured on other platforms including All Classical FM (Portland Station).
