Composer of modern classical piano music, born, raised and living in the countryside in England. Self taught in piano and composition. I became very unwell during my first couple of piano lessons and then had to sadly give them up, but carried on teaching myself, at my own pace, through those early stages of illness.
I've been playing since I was 12 years old and composing since 2012 at the age of 25. I'm now in my early 30's and still love playing and writing just as much as when I first started. Modern classical music is my favourite to write and play. Like this quote says 'Music is the space between the notes' and sometimes the hardest music to write is the simplest. Like the most beautiful music to listen to is the simplest.
I've had lovely feedback on my music over the 6 years that i've been on Score Exchange.
My pieces are relaxing to play and enjoyable to learn.
I also have lots of blank manuscript paper for you to print off to write your own music!
Tips for composition - When people ask me how do I write a piece of music, I always say composing music is like writing a story, which writes itself. Basically, the music takes me where it needs to go. You can take inspiration from nature, the past, feelings, a picture etc and just start to write a melody and build on that.
If you are looking for an easier piece of mine to learn, Eclipse is in C Major, White Feather is in D Major. If you are looking for something more challenging, try A Shadow, Tiny Footsteps or Desire!
My piece 'Shadow' is on YouTube and linked below! It's played by concert pianist Anna Sutyagina on her grand piano.
A great highlight musically for me was being asked to play on a grand piano at a stately home for visitors a couple of years ago!
Feel to contact me, whether it's more advice on composing, teaching, memorising, techniques, or feedback on my music.

Happy playing :-)
