I hold the degree of B.Mus(Hons) from London University and have been involved in music education all of my working life. During this time I composed many pieces of music specifically for school pupils either as individuals or in groups. I have a continuing involvement in church music through a long-held post as organist and choirmaster in St. Bryce Kirk in Kirkcaldy, and have written a number of sacred compositions. Since my retirement my output has increased markedly! If you find any of my compositions useful please do let me know by email or review. It's always nice to know someone is using them!
