About the facilitator

Myles Boyd is a composer, producer, and multi-instrumentalist. Starting music from a young age Myles demonstrated a natural affinity with the classical guitar and performed concerts and eisteddfods as early as 6 years of age. After receiving his AMEB grade 8 he was accepted into a leading conservatorium, however, left after a year to pursue other areas of music. His practice at this point shifted to include production and composition, however, he also retained a passion for string instruments. In the transference into production and composition he received Ableton Live certification through Dubspot, New York, before returning to university which he graduated with a Bachelor of music in 2023. In this time Myles passionately explored many facets of music, however, majored in composition and production.
