I am a freelance composer, animateur, educator, conductor and writer. My work aims to encourage creative participation in music making: to enjoy it as an enlivening group activity for all-comers, and one in which participants can discover their own creative musical identity.
I’m always interested in taking part in unusual, creative projects, collaborating with creative people from all artforms and in a variety of contexts.
Browse the website to see the sorts of things I do, or go straight to the other work and media page for a selection of audio and video extracts!
And get in touch: it would be lovely to hear from you!
