TODD HAYEN Todd was born into a theatrical family and began his early musical training listening to musical theatre scores various members of his family were performing. He began playing the piano when he was about ten picking out popular TV themes. Todd played trumpet in the high school band and it was here that he first stood in front of an ensemble as a conductor. Combining his early love for the theatre and film with his natural talents as a composer, Todd decided before entering college as a student of composition that he would devote his life to creating music for film. His formal education included composition, conducting and performance studies with prominent composers and artists at several distinquished universities including the Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music and Shenandoah University Conservatory of Music. He arrived in Los Angeles in 1980 and immediately began composing and orchestrating for Hanna-Barbera Productions. From here his career flourished both as a conductor/orchestrator and as a composer.
