About Aaron

aaron tch picHey, I’m Aaron. I’m the Chief Executive Officer at TheCollegeHelper.com, a serial entrepreneur, and a music composer from Chicago.

I’ve always had a knack for music. I began playing the drums at the age of 6 and by age 11, I had already learned to play the piano. Not long after that, I began teaching myself to play the guitar, saxaphone, percussion, and any other instruments I could get my hands on.

At the age of 12, I began writing and recording my first compositions, and by the time I was 16, I was composing and producing songs for music artists all throughout the Chicagoland area.

From Music Composer to College Planning Website?

I know. Seems strange, right? In mid-2009, I ran into an old high school friend of mine, Lauren. At that time, she was starting to apply to different School Counseling graduate programs, with the goal of earning her Master’s degree and eventually transitioning from a business professional to the field of education.

Recognizing her passion for helping students transition from high school to college, I convinced Lauren to start a college admissions assistance website. Soon after, TheCollegeHelper.com was born.

Given my experience with online businesses and internet marketing, I typically handle all the behind the scenes stuff, while Lauren manages the day to day operation of the site.

What types of music do I create?

As a music composer, my genres of specialty include: Classical, Orchestra, Cinematic, Pop, R&B, Hip Hop, Rap, Jazz, Dubstep, Rock, and Gospel. 

My background in classical and orchestral music has enabled me to bring a unique sound to the world of Popular Music. In 2003, I started AaronBeats.com, which was one of the first online “beat production” websites to create significant revenue.

After growing tired of being “boxed” into creating tracks that mimicked other producers to meet the demands of online artists, in 2008 I went back to developing and cultivating my own signature sound.

This created even bigger opportunities for me. Most recently, I’ve been composing music for large television networks, as well as more established music artists throughout the U.S. and London. My work has been used on popular television broadcasts such as the NFL on CBS, NBA Finals, MTV, BET, NBC, VH1, E!, Oxygen, A&E, CNN, and many more.

What music projects am I working on now?

Currently, I’m producing the Debut EP Album for upcoming JamBuzzer Pop Superstar Mandy Barry, creating new songs for my workout music website, MusicForMuscles.com, and composing music for upcoming television and film broadcasts.
