James V. Signorile


James V. Signorile received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Music in 1974 from Colby College, Waterville, ME. He first began piano lessons at the age of 8 and began composing at the age of 15. He later studied composition at Ridgewood High School with Murray B. Colosimo and John Lochner, and at Colby College with Peter Ré (a student of Paul Hindemith), Ermanno F. Comparetti, and Gordon W. Bowie. Jim was trained as a classical concert pianist by Gates Wray, a protégé of Vladimir Horowitz. His interests, however, became more concentrated in the area of composition. He also plays clarinet, bass clarinet, saxophone, classical and folk guitar, and soprano and alto recorder. Jim won the 1999, 2000 and 2001 ASCAP Awards and has been the recipient of commissions for Piano Suites and solos, Organ Symphonies and solos and a Piano Concerto.
