Composer and musician with broad education and 20 years of music-related experience in teaching, performance, music theory, composition and music production.
I have acquired both a Master’s in Composing For Film & Television from Kingston University and a Bachelor’s Degree in Classical Music Composition from Trinity College Dublin. I have also completed other courses in music production, recording and composing for video games. In addition to this, through playing in orchestras and other ensembles as a violinist and pianist, I have developed a good understand of orchestration and instrumentation.
Over the past ten years I have been teaching music in one on one and group settings. I’ve taught performance of violin, viola, cello and piano, and given lessons music theory, production and composition. My goal as a music teacher is create a love of music and in-still a sense of music appreciation while at the same time teaching students about the technical aspects of music.
