Taylor Goodson is active as a freelance percussionist in the New York/New Jersey metropolitan area, participating in performance with members of the Metropolitan Opera, the New York Philharmonic, the New York City Opera, and the Orchestra of St. Luke’s at many notable venues in both New York and New Jersey. He is the principal tympanist of both the Montclair Orchestra and the FEA Symphony and he performs regularly with a multitude of ensembles, including the Paragon Ragtime Orchestra and the New Jersey Festival Orchestra. He is also active as a member of the New York Percussion Group, a New York City-based percussion ensemble, and Festival Percussion, an educational percussion quartet in the New York/New Jersey area. As a soloist, he has appeared on multiple occasions with performances of works such as William Kraft's "Concerto for Timpani and Orchestra," Eric Ewazen's "Concerto for Marimba," and Béla Bartok's "Sonata for Two Pianos and Percussion." As an active composer as well, Mr. Goodson has written material for a wide variety of mediums. His music for the concert stage ranges from solo instrumental pieces to large symphonic works where his voice is described as “cinematic” and “emotional.” He was selected as a winner of the 2010 Dallas Wind Symphony Fanfare Competition and has received a multitude of commissions for a large variety of ensembles. Taylor has also written arrangements for notable soloists and conductors around the globe and has been published by Row-Loff Productions for some of his work for percussion. Since 2014, Mr. Goodson has also been writing original shows for competitive marching bands in northern New Jersey. Two of his original scores have received national titles ( Equilibrium, 2015 and Jamais Vu, 2019 ) and many others have had extensive success on the state and local levels. He continues to compose new and engaging works for the marching arts each year and strives to write music that is both engaging and educational. Taylor also has experience with other media as his music is featured in podcasts, video games, television, and film. His work in the realm of digital composition in combination with live recording have won him much critical acclaim, many of these projects having been featured on two of his albums "Inspirations: Volume I" (2014) and "Inspirations: Volume II" (2015), both of which are available through major digital music retailers.
