Taya Higgs

Technical Direction

Growing up in Westchester County, NY, Taya Higgs was constantly surrounded by music. Early in life, she developed a deep attachment to movies and the music that went along with them. Throughout high school, Taya was involved in many different music ensembles and programs as a percussionist. During her undergrad years at Stony Brook University, Taya fell in love with sound design, composing, and audio mixing for film. She also fell in love with vocal arranging and production after joining the Stony Brook Pipettes, the all-female a capella group on campus.

Now, Taya is pursuing an MFA degree in Sonic Arts at CUNY Brooklyn College where has been able to work on student projects as an engineer, a sound designer, and a composer. She hopes to continue growing and is excited to meet a larger community of composers through Composers Now.
