He continued his percussion training at the Eastman School of Music (2015), studying under world-renown Michael Burritt. Soon after, Jarryd's interests were drawn towards composition for screen, traveling to Seattle for his Masters in Film Scoring at the Pacific Northwest Film Scoring Program (2017), studying under two-time Emmy winner Dr. Hummie Mann. Jarryd has received critical acclaim from around the world, where both his film scores and concert works have been highly awarded. His scores for ROLLING ACROSS AMERICA and ENCHANTED, LLC received nods for a Jerry Goldsmith Soundtrack Award and an International Sound and Film Music Award.

For concert, "The Rain Maker: Suite for Orchestra" was given the Luminosity Orchestra's Young Composers award, and his percussion compositions are performed regularly world-wide. “Hero's Journey” (Solo Timpani and electronic playback), being the most famous, is a recurring repertoire option for the Italy Percussive Arts Society Timpani competition.
