Joseph Metcalfe

Joseph was born and raised in Southern England and, having taught himself the piano from the age of 4, began composing music in his early childhood. It was while watching the movie, Amadeus, that he realized that his calling in life was to write music for the screen. In his young 20's he was invited to Los Angeles and mentored by some of Hollywood’s greatest composers including Jerry Goldsmith and Elmer Bernstein. His career took him around the world, including working in Europe where he founded the modern day Budapest film scoring orchestra in 2000. 
He has written for shows on Netflix, Amazon as well as composed for Disney Imagineering, D23 and the EPCOT center's relaunch.

Acclaimed film music critic, Jonathan Broxton, describes Joseph Metcalfe's music as, "charming and infused with magic!”
