Hi, I am Bob Atwell and I have been playing Guitar and composing music since I was about 12 years old. (Many years ago.) I was a Music Education major at the Berklee College of Music in Boston and studied composition with Paul Schmeling and John Bavicchi. I also got a little help and guidance from Newton Wayland (arranger for the Boston Pops), Joe Raposo (composer of the Sesame Street theme) and Gunther Schuller (Pulitzer Prize winning composer). I dropped out of Berklee after 3 years to focus on Classical Guitar. Finding music to be a very non-lucrative career I went back to school to study electrical engineering and had a very long and rewarding career as an analog integrated circuit designer. A few years ago (nearing retirement) I decided to learn clarinet and start writing again.
