James Newton Howard

Pianist, producer, and composer James Newton-Howard scored over 60 films beginning in the mid-'80s, including The Fugitive, Space Jam, The Prince of Tides, Pretty Woman, Glengarry Glen Ross, and Waterworld. Newton-Howard began taking classical piano lessons at the age of four, playing on a piano owned by his grandmother, who was the Pittsburgh Symphony's concertmaster and violinist during the 1930s and '40s. He went on to study at the USC School of Music and at the Music Academy of the West (in Santa Barbara, CA) with Reginald Stewart and Leon Fleischer. He also studied under orchestrator Marty Paich, who would later conduct some of Newton-Howard's scores. After graduating from college, Newton-Howard joined a short-lived rock band, then worked for a couple of years as a session musician with artists including Diana Ross, Ringo Starr, and Harry Nilsson. In 1975, he joined the band of the most popular artist of that time, Elton John, toured with them during the mid-'70s and later re-joined for a tour in 1980 and again in 1986. Over the years, Newton-Howard has worked as a songwriter, producer, or arranger with the such artists as Cher, Earth, Wind & Fire, Rickie Lee Jones, Olivia Newton-John, Bob Seger, Rod Stewart, Barbra Streisand, Toto, and more. James Newton-Howard has received Oscars for his film scores in Prince of Tides (1991), The Fugitive (1993), and My Best Friend's Wedding (1997); and an Emmy for his theme for the television show E.R. ~ Joslyn Layne, Rovi

I love James Newton Howard's work, but they should definitely put the Peter Pan 2003 soundtrack by him on here. It is freaking incredible. <3

Amazing composer! :) Great to listen to when I'm doing homework!
this makes me so sad
Ohmigosh I'm breaking the chain and I'm gonna see a dead girl tonight
-_-
4 in a row, wow, these people must be really desperate

This freaked me out This isn't fake. Apparently, if you copy and paste this on ten comments in the next ten minutes, you will have the best day of your life tomorrow. You will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain you will see a little dead girl in your room tonight. In the next 53 minutes someone will say I love you or I'm sorry

It's astounding to me how some music is so powerful that the mind immediately associates it with story; hearing it brings bouts of strong emotion connected to that tale. This is what Howard creates for me with The Hunger Games soundtrack.
I SO need to read Hunger Games. >_<

Good to hear younger generations digging classical music. I'm bringing up my kids on it and they don't seem to mind. They love movie soundtracks especially
Signs- Good scores, movie that has no logic. No offense to anybody that likes the movie, but I just don't really like the movie. Again, my opinion, not yours or anybody elses, just mine.
livi.petal
omg i agree Ferrarienzo! !
Treasure Planet BEST Disney Movie EVA! ^_^
livi.petal
omg he did the real version of peter pan?! OMGOMGOMG!! TOO COOL!
I love this score, but I think the one he did to the live action Peter Pan back in 2003 is by far my favorite of his works. Zimmer is better...but it's pretty darn close!
Where's the bio?
susannahgrac e 1 9 9 5
I like him but Hans Zimmer is the best.
Hans Zimmer is better, but James is still good
The Hunger Games changed my life
Happy Hunger and may the odds be ever in your favor!! By the way that is my favorite film score he did. Amazing
He also did the film score for Peter Pan in 2003, love it!
jq_lthm
Genius!!
I love James Newton Howard! One of my favorite composers! Him and Hans Zimmer!
He did Hand of Fate in the movie Signs
wdjwakalogan
HE ALSO DID LADY IN THE WATER AND UNBREAKABLE. THIS GUY IS GOOD. HANS ZIMMER IS THE BEST THOUGH HANDS DOWN
SO WHATEVER IF SHE CAN SHOOT OR NOT. THIS IS ABOUT MUSIC. James Newton Howard is great. The last airbender? Bourne Legacy? Hunger Games? All great.
Who can't shoot? Katniss? Better watch out, she might shoot you
hellokitty12 5 0 1
yeah the books and movies are still good,, but although she has good aim , she can't shoot , i''m in archery too
@faerywink - Yeah, one of my best friends is in archery, and she is VERY well rounded! Her favorite things are adventure, stabbing, and horses...lol . . .
Yeah, no one cares how she holds the bow. She still looks cool.
What does all this have to do with the music? It seems to me that is what this forum should be about--do you like or dislike the score itself, and why.
no one exactly taught her to shoot, she probably had to just guess based on what her dad did
I'm in archery lol
Well, it was for boy scouts. I don't think I'm THAT well rounded (my sister is I guess), but thanks anyway.
@kids537 You are in archery? That is very impressive! Your parents have done well with you and your sis; you're both very smart, industrious and well-rounded people.
