He continued his musical education taking theory and composition courses at Indiana University’s Jacobs School of Music, including private lessons with renowned composers Dr. Don Freund and Dr. David Dzubay. 

While working professionally as an audio engineer in southern Indiana and the surrounding Midwest, Khalid led the progressive metal band Siddius – writing, performing, recording, and mixing two full length albums and headlining to audiences reaching up to 5,000+ people.
