"A natural musician with an intuitive understanding of harmony and a sweet, soulful sound..."
I am a composer, musician, workshop leader and teacher working across Yorkshire and nationally. If you would like to know more about my practice, please read my blog. Or feel free to email me if you want any more information about my work, tuition, musical options for your event, or this site. I am happy to answer any questions you may have.
many I feel really privileged to have won a couple of new commissions through the Creative Wakefield Creative Challenges for Word Fest. It involves delivering my first workshops with under 5s since lockdown in March and so I have been hard at work looking at how they can work and be Covid secure. I am very excited and looking forward to working with real people again to inspire two new works. One, a song and piece of music for young ensembles using onomatopoeia as the theme, and the other a piece of audio work using interviews with people in libraries during the festival month. Here's to getting going, slowly, safely and in a sustainable way :) You can find out more about Word Fest here.
Like many musicians and arts professionals, lockdown hit me quite hard, I blogged a little about it. There will be much more processing to do, I'm sure, but for now, we keep on keeping on xx
Rhubarb, Rhubarb, Rhubarb
I was really pleased to be awarded one of 8 digital commissions for the Rhubarb Festival in Wakefield at the beginning of the year. The resulting audio visual piece, Rhuminations, was made using 3,200 photographs of rhubarb growing, along with sounds made by the rhubarb as it grows. Along with digitally manipulated voices, bass and synths and can be seen as part of the Festival in Wakefield Market Hall this week (17th February - 23rd February 2020. for more information and to see the finished piece, you can also head to my composition pages.
