preeda thaiwatcharamas - composer (Season one & The origin)

Preeda is a graduate music student from Udonthani, Thailand. He is currently pursuing his Master of Arts degree in Music Education at Liberty University. Growing up in a farming region, he did not have many options of learning music. However, his mother saw the importance of the English language and music, so she began teaching him basic keyboard herself even though she did not know music. Preeda learned more about music by joining the local church worship team and singers group. During high school, he decided to take music more seriously and traveled to Bangkok for lessons. During his first year in college, Preeda got interested in film music and began to try composing. He has an Undergraduate degree in Commercial Music from Silpakorn University in Bangkok. Preeda was introduced to The Encounter project and Professor Chris Nelson while he was studying under Dr. David Schmal in his first year at Liberty.  Preeda continues to pursue his dreams to be a composer for film and other medias, while also training to be a music teacher.
