In this episode, we conclude my interview with pianist and composer/arranger Tom Ameen. In part 1, we talked about his love of music, his love of Disney, arranging music, choosing songs for his albums and more.
In this episode, Tom talks about…
- The one song that made it to an album that he didn’t know before including it;
- Whether he’s had to leave any out that he really would have liked to have included;
- His favorite song on each of his Disney albums;
- Whether it’s easier or more difficult to arrange songs that are already close to his usual style;
- The song that most captures his heart;
- If he could have any job working for the Walt Disney Company, what it would be and why;
- What sets Disney theme parks apart;
- What he loves most about what he does;
- What he never gets asked that he wishes people would ask him—and then we talk about his love of animals and about video games for a bit;
- Looking forward to the upcoming Star Wars movie;
- What inspires him;
- His practical advice to you for following your dreams;
- Shameless Plug Time.
