I tailor my tutoring to your needs. I am particularly interested in working with emerging and student composers and songwriters who show real promise and require tutoring and mentorship to help them achieve their goals and unlock their potential. I can also support with music and composition related coursework for up to A Level/Advanced Higher.
I have a BA in Music and a Masters (distinction) in Composition from Goldsmiths, University of London. I work full-time composing music and songs for diverse projects throughout the UK and internationally. I have taught and facilitated workshops with the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Royal Academy of Music, British Youth Music Theatre, International Youth Arts Festival, and secondary schools throughout Scotland.
I have worked and collaborated with Finn for over eight years on a range of musical projects.
Finn has the most beautiful and creative mind and this translates into his songwriting. Whatever your style, he will have lots of advice and tips on how to approach songwriting and/or improve on what is already there keeping it truly yours and original.

Finn explains things in a really easy-to-understand way. He helped me find my confidence in songwriting. He's friendly and professional. Highly recommended.
Finn is one of the best composers and song writers I’ve had the pleasure of working with. His knowledge of harmony together with his ability to combine succinct lyrics with catchy melodic line, give an eloquence and real impact and heart to his work.
As a collaborator and a person, he is extraordinarily kind and generous, while also confident and assured in his craft and philosophy of song writing and story telling.
His wealth of knowledge and experience across numberous genres make him well equipped to advise and consult across multiple styles.
