In Celebration of the Human Voice - The Essential Musical Instrument
Blake Neely is a composer, conductor, arranger, orchestrator, pianist and author. Born and raised in Texas, Blake Neely spent the bulk of his life there before making the inevitable move to Los Angeles. For Neely, pursuing music was never a conscious choice - it was simply what he did - who he was. He took to playing the piano almost as soon as he learned to walk, and he hasn't looked back since. He seized every opportunity, big or small, to get his hands on the world of music. Years of practicing, training and persistence were beginning to pay off when Blake landed a summer internship with Disney while attending the University of Texas. After college, he returned to work for Disney, eventually making his way "up the ladder" to manage their print music department. Thankful for all the invaluable experience and contacts he gained, but still restless for more, Neely struck out on his own. It would be, as it always is in Hollywood, those contacts that helped to take his career to the next level.
Neely set out as many would be musicians do, working on his own music while trying to find a steady source of employment. He wrote numerous books on how to play various instruments, including "Piano For Dummies." Eventually Neely's reputation spread and he was able to take on some big name projects, including Frequency, Band of Brothers, and High Crimes. As an author, he has written over 25 music method books such as the best-selling singers method "Fast Track for Lead Singers."
