Epic TV & Movie Music on the Violin

Movie music has been a huge influence on my musical style over the years. I’ve always loved soundtrack music and I think it’s amazing how much influence a movie’s soundtrack has over how you feel about the movie.

When I first graduated college, I actually really wanted to try out film composing, but for a variety of reasons, I decided to pursue a different type of career. But I never lost my love for that style of music.

I really admire the work of John Williams, Hans Zimmer, John Powell and so many others. A lot of their work inspired my interest in composing my own original music!

I’ve released so many different arrangements of my favorite film music, including 1 full length album titled “Legendary Movie Music”, so I hope you’ll enjoy all of those songs and videos by scrolling down below 🙂 I’ve also included some of my favorite music from TV as well!


For the Love of the Princess

Disney Music

I’ve actually done so many Disney covers that I made a completely separate page here for you guys to check out. I’ve made an entire Disney album and quite a few additional singles, because there were so many songs I wanted to make arrangements for!

The Greatest Showman

A Million Dreams

I absolutely love the soundtrack for The Greatest Showman! I’ve listened to the full soundtrack countless times, but “A Million Dreams” is definitely my favorite song.

My husband, Jarred, and I have been together since we were 14 years old so this song really made me think about him a lot. He actually shot this music video so if you notice me smiling a lot it’s probably because he’s on the other end of the camera 🙂

How to Train Your Dragon

This song was actually one of the very first music videos I shot outdoors! It’s really special to me because my dad shot it for me and he is definitely not a videographer haha, but I still think he did a really nice job!

I didn’t have any sort of budget to hire professional videographers at the time, so I really appreciated my dad stepping in to help me, even though it was totally out of his comfort zone. I can’t help but smile anytime I watch this video.

Pirates of the Caribbean

He’s a Pirate

He’s a Pirate Folk Version

I think we can all agree that you can’t have a list of epic movie music without something from Pirates of the Caribbean! He’s a Pirate is such an amazing song, and it translates especially well on the violin. I love this song so much I made 2 versions of it!

The first one is more epic and similar in style to the original song, and the second one has more of a folk style that feels like it could be playing in a cool pirate tavern. You’ll have to let me know which one you like more!

Hi, I'm Taylor,
your music career guide!

I’ve been a violinist for over 25 years and for over the past 10 years I’ve been building my skills and career as an independent musician. Within that time I’ve grown an online audience of over 3 million people, released 11 full-length albums (5 of which charted on the Billboard Charts) and traveled the world touring my own live show, all without ever signing with a record label. One of my greatest passions is helping other musicians learn and grow from my own knowledge and experiences through my Musician of All Trades courses.
