Composition Studies: Master Degree

38344328_1555602307641027_r.jpegMy name is Joanna Krystyniecka, I am 25 years old composer, singer and violinist, born in Cracow and currently based in Warsaw, Poland.

I have got 19 years of experience in playing the violin and music theory. Two years ago me and my friends started a game developer company named Alrauna Studio and this is exactly how I become a  music composer: I needed to do something in my life that would make me truly happy and that would give me the opportunity of becoming a better musician, to create the melodies that would bring the joy of music.

I am running a campaign, because I was accepted for MFA in Music for Motion Pictures & Contemporary Media degree programme, run by Film Scoring Academy of Europe and Irish American University. 
Only 23 people from all around the world will be accepted to this programme and I am one of them.

This is an unbelievable honour for me, to get accepted to such prestigious studies programme, where the best award-winning composers teach students how to create music that would bring an unbelievable experiences; the studies also contain learning about recording with the orchestra, writing scores, using music software and much more.

I was accepted on the basis of my compositions and talk about my musical experiences. This is why I am proud, that my I earned such a place with my own hard work.

Those studies are however very expensive.
The scheduled payments are the following:
1) due to 1May 2019 - 4.000 €
2) due to 1 September 2019 - 12.300 €
3) due to 1 December 2019 - 8.500 €
4) due to 1 March 2020 - 8.500 €

I am a working person, but I have no possibility of collecting such money myself. However...I would really love to take part in the studies I was offered. I have been working hard on developing my skills and this would be a really huge opportunity for me  to become o professional music composer.  
This is the opportunity to make my dreams come true.

And that is exactly why I address this campaign to you: whoever would like to help me to collect the sums I need to take part in MFA  in Music for Motion Pictures & Contemporary Media, I will be extremely grateful. I think I cannot express, how much I would appreciate such help. I am asking for much, bur the more people would see this campaign and decide to donate a little, the greater chance I have to learn about music: a thing that is the sense of everything I do. 

This all means a lot, lot to me. Thank you for reading my story and take good care!
