Personal Description:

Luke is a currently studying at the Royal Academy of Music for his MA in Musical Direction and Coaching in the school of Musical Theatre. In 2017, Luke graduated of the Royal Northern College of Music where he studied as a principal study clarinettist under the tutelage of Lynsey Marsh and Antonio Salguero and at Kungliga Musikhögskolan in Stockholm, Sweden under Hermann Stefansson and Emil Jonason. Whilst at RNCM, Luke also studied piano under Daniel Browell.

During his studies, Luke performed in masterclasses with Martin Fröst and Andreas Ottensammer to name a few and has enjoyed working with distinguished conductors such as Daniel Harding and Sir Mark Elder. He has a keen interest in the study of practise psychology and during his time at RNCM, presented a short lecture on ‘Practise and Free Will’. As a pianist, he has worked with the Piccadilly Symphony Orchestra and RNCM Youth Perform in various capacities as repititeur and accompanist.

Alongside his studies at RNCM, Luke has worked as Musical Director in productions of ‘FAME The Musical’, ‘Summer Holiday’, ‘Billy Elliot – School Edition’, ‘HONK!’, ‘The Full Monty’, ‘Threepenny Opera’, and ‘RENT’ and also as an arranger/conductor for a production of ‘The Rise and Fall of Little Voice’. In 2014, Luke was awarded the South-West Fellowship of Drama award for Best Musical Direction for his work on ‘FAME’. Further to this, Luke works as an assistant choral director for the Somerset County Youth Choir and a pianist for the SCY Show Choir as well as a hobbyist composer currently working on his first piece of original Musical Theatre.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been teaching since the beginning of my degree at RNCM, working for Rochdale Music Service and Somerset Music. I currently teach as a peripatetic piano and clarinet teacher at schools in Wedmore and Street, have taught on a variety of music courses in the Somerset area and teach private pupils of varying abilities and ages.

Tutoring Approach:

Due to my diverse background working and performing as a clarinetist, pianist and in the world of musical theatre, I carry a range of tools and adaptable approaches to the development of musical, technical and instrumental skills. I have a keen interest in Alexander technique and practice psychology which I promote in my teaching but, above all, I aim to create an environment that nurtures experimentation in order to find the easiest and most enjoyable ways of creating music.
