I hope you find something fresh and new here.

Trained as a classical pianist at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester, UK, I always aim at writing music which feels right under the fingers and which also feels satisfying to play. Harmony, texture and the sense of a challenge are all aspects of music which are important to me.   

I especially enjoy singing and love the sounds of the various modes used within the world of folk music. Because of this I've wanted to incorporate these sounds within my music. I also love being away from the rush of the city and getting out into the countryside; favourite places being up on the fells of the Lake District or Derbyshire. And as well as composing music I'm also interested in breathing some fresh air into old, well known folk melodies, arranging them for piano.

Hopefully my music will provide some light relief for students who are inbetween the more advanced grades, and also some easy listening music suitable for including in a concert.

You will also find some children's songs suitable for youngsters of primary school age.

Please do leave feedback, either here or on my youtube channel:
