Let My Heart Alone
My name is Cleveland Boney and I am a music composer. It has been my dream to compose for the motion picture industry for a while now and I have moved to California from Minnesota to do so. I have been playing the piano for about 26 years with 13 years of classical training. For the past 3 years I have taught piano technique and theory to ages ranging from 5 to 70. This past year I was involved in 2 jazz CD projects for which I played, orchestrated, and co-wrote. The names of those CDs are Jevetta Steeles My Heart and Dallas Johnsons Anything Can Happen. I was also hired by The Great American History Theater of St. Paul, Minnesota as their Musical Director for a musical called Snapshots: Life in the City which ran in the spring of 2006. I have been working on 2 orchestral suites for the past 8 years, one of which was considered for the National Composers Forum Workshop Competition in 2005. I have played for several churches nation wide and have played for community gospel choirs, one of which won the Stellar Award for best new choir in 2002.
