Thanks for visiting!
Firstly, a bit about me… As well as arranging and composing music, I am a PhD physicist at Lancaster University.
Musical experience… My first and favourite instrument was and is the violin, which I started learning at the age of 7. Next was the piano when I was around 10 and soon after I bought myself a guitar. I have performed with many orchestras and ensembles as well as solo on numerous occasions.
Influences and inspirations… I have a broad taste in music, ranging from classical right through folk, indie and rock to heavy metal. Taking the classical music genre, my influences include Nigel Kennedy, Rachmaninoff, Bach, Beethoven, Elgar and Chopin. Elsewhere, I enjoy Led Zeppelin, the Levellers, Show of Hands, Bellowhead, Neil Young and Metallica.
So please, have a browse around! If you do end up performing one of my arrangements or indeed one of my own compositions, drop me a quick email as I'm always eager to hear people's reactions.
