    Composing

    I’m a composer of music for choirs, schools and other ensembles. Writing for a range of abilities, my music is characterful and ear-tingling.

    Workshops

    I run a variety of fun-filled, inspiring music workshops, often with primary school children, but also sometimes with grown-ups.

  • Scores

    There are well over a hundred pieces of sheet music notation already composed, just waiting for you to sing or play. For schools, choirs and instruments.
