He studied Theory, Harmony, Counterpoint, Fugue, Orchestration and History with Dr. Charles Zammit and Carmelo Pace. Later, he followed an intensive course in Composition with Mro Pawlu Grech. His academic qualifications consist in the Associateship, Licentiateship and Fellowship in composition of the London College of Music. His compositions in the traditional and modern idioms are set for different media such as wind band serious music, orchestral, chamber and vocal. In the field of Chamber Music, Ray Sciberras expresses himself in a more modern style. He employs most of the well-established and renowned 20th century compositional techniques to achieve a subjective mode. However, due to his connection and intensive commitment among local band clubs, he enthusiastically devotes much of his time composing for the wind band. A collection of his music for wind band has been recorded in England by Doyen Recordings Limited"". Other important large- scale works in his repertoire are the composition and orchestration/instrumentation of the original soundtracks for ""Anno Domini XXXIII"" and ""L-Iskorpjun"", Cantatas and Oratorios. He teaches music at De La Salle College and shares much of his time teaching, rehearsing and conducting the Beland Band of Zejtun and St. Mary of Mosta."""
