I write music for chamber ensembles, youth and adult choirs, orchestras and theatre groups.
Through my music I hope to communicate the potential drama, mystery, excitement and sometimes humour of the whole musical process through rhythm, melody, harmony and form.
Commissions have included a wind quintet celebrating the reopening of Brighton Museum and Art Gallery, a piano duet for the 75th anniversary of Brighton and Hove Progressive Synagogue, and an unaccompanied choral work for the 20th anniversary of Brighton Chamber Choir.
My travels have often been a source of inspiration for my music, including several trips to Africa, a trip to Palestine and to various European countries. I am currently working on a new commission for solo piano.
You can listen to audio samples of my work here.
If you would like to commission a work for instrumental ensemble, solo instrument, chamber or full orchestra, solo voice or choir, please contact me at email@example.com
