Ronald Alvin Kidd has been composing since the age of 14. He is a master of the french horn and piano playing and performing his own work, but music of the great composers of the past. He is a fluent reader as well and spent the first 5 years of his musical life learning how to read and perform a large portion of the keyboard music of J.S. Bach. He currently owns, with his wife of 25 years, a small music school located in Jonesboro, Ga. called Harmonies Music Studios and teaches there and at Woodward Academy. Kidd uses the Gigastudio 3 for samples and mixer board and composes from the staff, giving him the ability to produce not only a quality recording of his work, but a finished score as well.
