Composition

As a child I studied flute, singing and piano and was a Junior Exhibitioner at the Royal College of Music. Because of my musical background I was often asked to compose music for the shows I was involved in as an actor. This led to a wealth of work as a composer and musical director during the 1980s, particularly, though not exclusively, in TIE where I worked for Theatre Centre, Humberside and Half Moon YPTs and Theatre of Fact in Milton Keynes. If you click on the links below you find extracts from some of my work including the music for Kenneth Branagh’s Romeo and Juliet at the Lyric, Hammersmith and my opera Mummy.
