Rick Holets

Rick Holets is an independent film composer from Albuquerque, New Mexico, where he works and lives with his beautiful wife and daughter.

Rick scribbled the score for his first original piece of piano music at age 8. It was the beginning of a consuming love for creating and performing music. His musical experience includes 12 years of formal piano instruction, self directed studies in improvisation and music theory, and even some time spent playing guitar and mandolin in the Desert Skies folk band.

Though he enjoys the performance aspects of music, Rick’s lifelong passion has been for film music. In 2010, Rick composed music for his first short film. Other projects have followed as Rick devoted himself to becoming expert in all aspects of film composing. His constant goal is to better communicate truth and beauty in the music that he creates.

Striving to realize the highest standards of beauty and excellence in music is one of the ways Rick desires to glorify God. God’s grace alone gives hope and life. To Him be the glory!
