Welcome new reviewer Christopher Garner

Movie Music UK is delighted to welcome a new reviewer to its writing staff: Christopher Garner.

Chris has been passionate about music for decades. He started learning to play the piano at age 9, and began collecting film scores in 1995 with Braveheart, Glory, and Apollo 13. He’s an ardent fan of film and film music and has listened to and analyzed thousands of films scores. He studied the piano for 10 years, including one year under a professor at Weber State University, where he also studied ear training and sight-singing in their music program. He transferred to BYU, and though he got his bachelor’s degree in history, he wrote his senior thesis about composer Aaron Copland. He received a master’s degree and doctorate from Utah State University.

Professionally Chris was a religious educator for 10 years in southern Nevada, and currently works as a curriculum writer for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He performs as a pianist and vocalist, and accompanies instrumental and vocal soloists and choirs as often as occasion permits. He lives in Layton, Utah with his wife, Krista, and four children who only recently learned that not all music comes from movies.

Chris will be writing about current, mainstream film scores across all styles and genres, and we hope his taste, expertise, and critical eye will grace Movie Music UK for years to come!
