Geoffrey King is an American composer. Born in Pittsburgh in 1992, he studied composition with Josh Levine and Lewis Nielson at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music, while completing a parallel degree in biology and neuroscience.
He then moved to London to study at the Royal Academy of Music with Philip Cashian and Edmund Finnis. Upon finishing his MMus, he was awarded the Regent’s Prize and the DipRAM for his final portfolio.
During his time in London, Geoff has written for the London Philharmonic Orchestra, CHROMA, the Hermes Experiment, Ensemble Renard, and many others. He is particularly interested in using concert music to tell overlooked stories, and in being a cheerleader for new music.
Geoff teaches Aural Skills at RAM and composition at the Rachmaninoff Music Academy.
