Jack Mauro Music
Jack Mauro is a young composer born and raised in NYC. His path to music is unconventional compared to many of his peers. He originally had his mind set on becoming a college hockey player but due to a devastating injury at age 16, his career was cut short and he turned to music to help ease the pain of this major life change. He would listen to acoustic artists such as Tommy Emmanuel, Ben Howard, Bon Iver, Chet Atkins, and John Butler. Although he could play a few chords, these artists led to a huge spark of inspiration towards the guitar and he spend up to 10 hours a day playing and practicing the instrument. Through listening to and learning from these artists, Jack began to understand song craft and the importance of melody in a composition. He began to write songs and eventually sang and played guitar in a band when he was 18.
The constant practicing and writing led to very quick progress and landed Jack a small scholarship to Berklee College of Music in 2017. During his time in Berklee he began to learn why music works the way it does and various production and mixing techniques. These new ideas led to a fascination with film composition. He began to break down and listen extensively to various film scores from different composers. Through studying and analyzing scores, he learned different ways to convey emotions, keep ideas fresh, write strong melodies, and incorporate different instrumentations.
Jack has recently graduated from Berklee and is writing for various companies that provide music to major TV networks such as Discovery, NBC, Food Network, HBO, and many more.
