Maggie Bigelow, a native of Southern California, was born to creative parents who both worked in the film industry. Their love for film was instrumental in her early interest in film music. Composing music came naturally to her as did her interpretive abilities.
Beginning piano at a young age she demonstrated abilities to communicate emotions through music as she progressed through standard classical repertoire. At age 14, she began studying with Hak Soon Swiatkowski, and at 18 had her orchestral debut with the Pasadena Youth Symphony Orchestra performing Camille Saint-Saëns Piano Concerto in G Minor. During that same time Maggie also participated in school music programs, community musicals and private teaching.
Maggie’s college experience was one of versatility. Though always working in the direction of film composition, she spent time improving her classical and jazz technique with Dr. Jackie Petito, David Arnay and Matt Harris. She participated in ensembles in and outside of school and was also asked to compose music for culmination ceremonies and the theatre department.
After receiving her Bachelor's in Music she pursued with full force her free lance career composing music for films, commercials and video games as well as doing occasional copyist work.
Maggie has continued her career as a composer and branched out into other technical areas of sound working as a sound designer and audio engineer. Maggie recently returned to Southern California after living with her husband and two children in the Kansai area of Japan.
