Greetings. I’m J. Walter Hawkes, but hey, you can call me Walter. I’m an Emmy-winning composer and a skilled trombone/ukulele player with a studio providing music in many forms for the greater Earth area. Here you will find numerous examples of works as well as a curated list of upcoming performances with various groups.
- I provide original music for TV, Film, Video Games, and apps.
Check out the "See" page for info and video examples.
- I arrange/orchestrate music for everything from a horn or string section to a big band to a symphony orchestra. Check out the "Hear" page for info and audio examples.
- I play trombone and ukulele all around the NYC area and the world. Check out the "Hear" for examples and the "Calendar" page for my schedule. If you'd like to be reminded of when I'm playing near you, you can sign up for a mailing list on the "Contact" page.
- I have a recording studio in Long Island City that I can record most the above in. Check out the "About" page for more info.
