Personal Description:

I am a professional composer and pianist based in York. Having recently completed my tenure as Composer in Residence at Eton College, I am now studying towards a PhD at the University of York as a WRoCAH scholar.

My music is published by the University of York Music Press and has received many accolades, winning the Ebor Organ Prize in 2015, the Royal Northern Sinfonia’s Mozart’s of Tomorrow competition in 2016, and in 2017, The Henfrey Composition Prize as well as the prestigious NCEM Young Composers Award for 'Prayer from Afar', which was broadcast on BBC Radio 3. I was artist in residence with Sage Gateshead’s Young Sinfonia and have been commissioned by the Brundibar Arts Festival, Orchestra for the Earth, Choir & Organ magazine, Borough New Music, Northern Praeclassica and internationally renowned pianist Jakob Fichert. Most recently, my music has been performed by the Royal Tunbridge Wells Symphony Orchestra, The Chapel Choir of Selwyn College and the distinguished Gromoglasova piano duo.

As a pianist I have co-musical directed, repetiteured and performed Grease (2010), Hairspray (2011), The Wizard of Oz (2013), The Sound of Music (2015) and Martyn Harry’s Children’s Opera, Vehicles (2017). I have also repetiteured for the York Minster Mystery Plays (2016) and provided accompaniment for MPerf auditions at the Royal College of Music, Royal Academy of Music and the Guildhall School of Music & Drama (2015). The highlight of my performing career came when I performed Rachmaninoff's Second Piano Concerto with the University of York Symphony Orchestra (2015).

Tutoring Experience:

For two years as Composer in Residence at Eton College I taught composition classes to years 9, 10, 11 and 12, as well as on a one-to-one basis to pupils aged 13-18. I also taught piano and theory and provided coaching for ABRSM exams (including aural skills). As an undergraduate I gave supplementary lessons to students on the Piano MA course at the University of York, in addition to my other private piano pupils.

Tutoring Approach:

Since starting to learn the piano at the relatively late age of 14, I have been completely obsessed with and devoted to music. As a teacher, I consider it my primary goal and privilege to help illuminate for students what makes music so essential.

I teach piano, composition and theory to all ages and abilities. For piano, lessons can be tailored towards those hoping to take exams, however there is no pressure to do so under my tutelage. I would be just as enthusiastic helping students tackle specific repertoire or improve their general technique.

Similarly, composition lessons could be used to supplement Music GCSE or A-level courses, or to provide a general tuition in which we analyse composition techniques and implement said techniques through practical work and exercises.
