Tim Maurice is a classically trained musician in the Greater Boston Area, where he works as a freelance composer, arranger, music director, and pianist.

Tim has written music for a variety of independent film projects across New England, including “Karma’s Choice” (entered into the Boston International Film Festival), and “The Green Card” (Rising Star Award Winner for Best Short Film at the 2010 Canada International Film Festival). Tim was music director, arranger, and pianist for the cabaret show “Never Far From Home” at Central Square Theater, which earned critical acclaim from The Boston Globe. He arranged and orchestrated for the North Cambridge Family Opera production of “Flying High,” an opera with music by multi-instrumentalist/composer Graham Preskett and lyrics by writer John Kane. Tim has also worked with Grammy-nominated jazz pianist/composer Taylor Eigsti, assisting with orchestration and score preparation for symphonic pieces.

Born in Maine, Tim first enrolled at Bates College, where he studied piano under Natasha Chances, a former student of Alfred Cortot. He later transferred to Berklee College of Music, where he earned a degree in Film Scoring. Tim was the recipient of the 2009 BMI Film Scoring Scholarship.
