Hello! My name is Maxwell Kaye, and I'm a composer and clarinetist from Connecticut, U.S.A., currently getting a Bachelor of Music degree in composition at the Mannes School of Music in New York City. I'm devoted to writing music that's naturally beautiful and that can connect with listeners of any background. This website includes a selection of my compositions for your listening pleasure, as well as information about upcoming and past performances of my work.

If you would like to receive updates on my progress, feel free to follow me on YouTube or Instagram (I have included links to these pages at the bottom of each page). I really appreciate that you took the time to look here and I hope you get something meaningful out of my music!

Music, even in situations of the greatest horror, should never be painful to the ear but should flatter and charm it, and thereby always remain music.”

— Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
