Composer & Arranger

I’m a Manchester based composer with experience of working with many of the country’s leading orchestras, theatres and production companies.  My music spans multiple genres, and in recent years I’ve focussed on composing music for children and family audiences.

As an arranger, I specialise in orchestral and choral writing, including pop music mash ups, multi-ability arrangements for youth/amateur ensembles, and remixing of classical works into modern orchestrations and genre. I also collaborate with upcoming and renowned artists to add flavours of the orchestra onto their tracks.

I’m also very passionate about composing and arranging for music education and outreach purposes, with the aim of creating high quality, artistically valued projects and performances that have ‘participation’ at their core.

Some of the clients I’ve been fortunate enough to have composed and arranged music for include:  The BBC; Manchester Camerata; The Halle Orchestra; 20th Century Fox and Manchester acoustic hip-hop band, PROSE.
