Primary Composer Picture
McKenzie in the 1990's

"My desire to compose strong melodies is one of the driving forces in my composition process. Melody is probably the part of film music that I am most attracted to. Music that is melodically strong often grabs my emotions in the most wonderful way."
- Mark McKenzie in 1999

Mark McKenzie was born in Lake City, Minnesota, and as his parents loved music they made sure that each of their seven children studied piano and practiced at least an hour a day. As he entered high school he became engrossed in classical music, particularly J.S. Bach, Beethoven, and Chopin. He also became very interested in the music of rock bands like Yes, Deep Purple, Emerson Lake & Palmer and others spending every free minute listening to music, playing the piano, organ, French horn, recorder, and to some degree the guitar. Attending the University of Wisconsin in Eau Claire, he studied music composition as well as English literature. After earning his Bachelors degree in music composition he moved to L.A. in 1979 and finished both his Masters and his Doctorate in music composition at the University of Southern California.
