Alan Menken is an award-winning composer, singer/songwriter and a musician with an estimated net worth of $10 Million. Menken gained his hefty net worth by producing notable musicals for Walt Disney which includes The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin. Manhattan-born Menken was a great lover of music from a very early age. When he attended college, Menken started out as a pre-med student, but later change to his first love-music. After college, he joined the BMI Lehman Engel Musical Theatre Workshop, which gave him the opportunity to perform in local clubs. Menken also worked as a composer, mainly producing jingles and songs. Menken got his first big break with lyricist Howard Ashman to work on the 1970 Off-Broadway production, God Bless You, Mr Rosewater. This production was a success, but there were greater heights installed for Menken: His work for the 1982's Off-Broadway musical, Little Shop of Horrors, earned him a Drama Desk Award nomination. Menken quickly became a notable composer as the following year he received a BMI Career Achievement Awards for his work for Little Shop of Horrors, God Bless You, Mr Rosewater plus many others. Menken was involved in a musical version of Charles Dickens' classic, A Christmas Carol (1994.) The show was such a roaring success that it has become an annual holiday event in New York. Despite his undeniable Broadway success, Menken is a saviour to Walt Disney as he is better known for his string of prominent musicals for their animated films. Over the last two decades, Menken produced music materials for Little Mermaid, Aladdin, The Hunchback of Notre Dame and more recently Tangled (2010.). He also produced music for the film Enchanted (2007). For his projects with Disney, Menken won eight Oscar awards, making him the only living person to achieve this. Menken has been Oscar nominated a total of nineteen times. Furthermore, Menken received a Tony Award nomination for his work on Sister Act: the musical, which was premiered in Broadway on spring 2011.
Alan Menken (born July 22, 1949) is a pianist and composer of American musical theatre and film.
Menken is best known for his scores for films produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios. His scores for The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, and Pocahontas have each won him two Academy Awards. He also composed the scores for The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Hercules, Home on the Range, The Shaggy Dog, Enchanted, and most recently, Tangled. Menken has collaborated on several occasions with lyricists including Howard Ashman, Tim Rice, Glenn Slater, and Stephen Schwartz. With nineteen nominations and eight wins, Menken is the third person to win the most Oscars after Walt Disney (twenty-two wins) and Alfred Newman (nine wins).

Menken was born in New York, NY to a Jewish family, the son of Judith and Norman Menken, a dentist. He developed an interest in music at an early age, studying piano and violin. He went to New Rochelle High School in New Rochelle, New York. He attended college as a pre-med student, but later changed his focus to music at NYU Steinhardt. After college, he attended the BMI Lehman Engel Musical Theater Workshop. He performed frequently in local clubs and worked as a composer of jingles and songs and as an accompanist.
In the late 1970s, Menken wrote several shows that were successfully showcased, but were not produced. Menken's first major professional work was with Ashman for the Off-Broadway 1979 WPA Theatre production of the play God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater, an adaptation of a Kurt Vonnegut novel. This was well received, but three years later, he achieved greater success with the 1982 Off-Broadway musical Little Shop of Horrors, again with Ashman, for which he earned a Drama Desk Award nomination. Little Shop was adapted for a successful motion picture and later received a Broadway run.
In 1983, Menken received the BMI Career Achievement Award for his body of work for musical theater, including Little Shop of Horrors, God B
