John Beder is a filmmaker and percussionist. He recently finished his first film, “Composed,” which takes a look at the causes of and offers a solution to the problem of performance anxiety.
In 2008, John graduated Boston University with a degree in music performance during which he discovered a passion for filmmaking. During his studies in Boston, John himself was left feeling isolated as a musician struggling with performance anxiety. His passion for this project comes from first hand experience and the desire to create dialogue around this common issue musicians experience but rarely discuss.
