about

Taylor Ambrosio Wood holds an M.M. in Scoring for Film, Television, and Video Games from The Berklee College of Music in Valencia, Spain, and a B.M. in Percussion Performance from The Boston Conservatory of Music.
It all began at age 9 with a Zimbabwean marimba.

Taylor Ambrosio Wood first discovered the joy of playing music with the Zimbabwean Marimba when she was 9 years old. Impassioned by Zimbabwean music, Taylor also began studying the mbira (a traditional Shona thumb piano) with Jan Christensen.

At age 15, she became an early entry undergraduate at Southern Oregon University and studied classical marimba, percussion, and music theory under Dr. Terry Longshore. During that time, she also studied classical marimba in Germany with Composer/Percussionist Nebojsa Jovan Zivkovic.

At age 17, Taylor was accepted to The Boston Conservatory of Music where she studied music composition with Marti Epstein; percussion with Keith Aleo, Samuel Z. Solomon, and the late John Grimes; and marimba with famed marimbist Nancy Zelsman.

Taylor has won numerous awards including the Oregon State Mallet Championship (twice), the Sandra James Music Foundation Scholarship, and the Women in Music and Gaming Scholarship awarded by the Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics at Stanford University. She currently teaches sound design and composition, and writes music for video games in Portland, Oregon.
