Jarred Main (b. 1999, Bellingham, Washington) was singing before he could talk. Born partially deaf, he found music a comforting way to communicate. He started composing originally to supplement his sight reading, but soon fell in love with the methods, freedom, and ideas behind composition. He has been passionately composing for six years and is currently a sophomore, double majoring at Western Washington University in Music Composition with Dr. Charles Halka and Music Education.
