Main menu:


Michael Patti is a composer, orchestrator and synthestrator of music for film and games in Los Angeles, CA. His music is most often heard in Hollywood motion picture advertising campaigns. In 2006, Michael founded Cinesamples, an industry-leading developer of music software instruments. These 'virtual' instruments are used daily by top Hollywood composers, and have become an essential tool that allows composers to focus on creating well-produced music and mockups, in less time.

Michael Patti grew up in Massapequa, Long Island, NY. His musical training started at age 10, after seeing a Billy Joel concert on television. He studied piano and composition with Julliard trained composer and pianist Avraham Sternklar. As an undergrad at Hofstra University studying Computer Science, he made a living as a busy accompanist for musical theater, vocalists and classical musicians in the New York area. This was where his real training took place, and gained the ability to sight read and transpose any piece of music placed on the piano. An invaluable skill as a professional pianist which would aide him as a composer later down the road.
