Kieran was raised in the Buckinghamshire town of High Wycombe. His passion for music began in secondary school, where he started lessons on the drums. He developed a keen interest in composition, influenced largely by the film soundtracks of John Williams and Howard Shore, as well as the work of Tchaikovsky. It is his desire to one day work as a composer for both the film industry and the concert hall.
After finishing his A-levels, Kieran went on to study music at the University of Bristol, where he has been able to specialise in composition. He has had many opportunities to have various pieces performed, the most prestigious of which is a short symphony written for string orchestra. Kieran also plays percussion regularly in university ensembles, such as the University Symphony Orchestra, as well as conducting the Wind Orchestra. He is a committee member of the Bristol University Composition society, where it is his pleasure to organise the concerts put on to showcase the compositional talent of the university.
