Kevin Vanderburg

Kevin Vanderburg is aging. He began writing music at the age of 12, and had finished his first concerto by the age of 17. He began studying composition with Robert Nelson at the University of Houston in 2000. Vanderburg began his masters degree in composition at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas in the Fall of 2007, but decided his viewpoint was not congruent with what Virko Baley advocated. Vanderburg, is currently composing his Requiem, which is coming along quite nicely in the manner of John Rutter, but not quite as "Accessible," but very much in his style... For those of you who look down on John Rutter, you are wrong.

Anyway, I highly advocate avoiding Nevada at all cost composers... Especially Virko Baley and Veera Asheer!
