COMPOSER AND ARRANGER
Coming from a theatrical background, my approach to writing and arranging music is always about putting the audience's experience at the forefront.
Original Musicals Include: The Edwards Awards, Out of Hand, The Institute, Before A Fall, The Highwayman, A Trail of Ashes, Another Side, Songs of The Sea.
I have taught music in both group settings and on a one-to-one basis for almost six years.
I am always led by your musical goals, whether you want to prepare for an official examination, explore a particular genre, or revisit an instrument you may not have picked up for a while. Whatever you want to achieve, we can get there together.
As a result of my training as a professional actor, I always direct my acting students with the same respect, discipline and professionalism I would outline in an industry rehearsal room. This expectation elevates my pupils' performance
I have coached students through traditional LAMDA and Trinity examinations (Entry level through to Grade 8), audition preparation for drama schools, or even additional direction for a production.
I trained as an actor-musician at Rose Bruford College of Theatre and Performance before going on to work consistently in a variety of sectors in the industry.
