I’m a passionate advocate of music education and outreach and have gained a reputation, both in the UK and internationally as a composer specialising in this area.
I believe everybody has the right to a high quality music education and see regularly the positive impact music can have on people; on a personal, social and community level.
Significant international projects have included working with the British Council in Japan, training musicians from Osaka’s ‘21st Century Symphony Orchestra’ and more recently in Sweden, working alongside musicians from the Stockholm Concert Orchestra. In the UK, I’ve worked with many of the major orchestras and music education organisations writing bespoke compositions and arrangements, presenting concerts or delivering participatory projects.
I also work with the BBC as a composer / arranger, concert presenter and music education consultant. This has included projects such as the award winning Ten Pieces campaign.
