I am a professional Musical Director for Musical Theatre and Opera and a Music Graduate from the University of Bristol, specialising in Piano Performance and Music Theory. I can create sheet music in a key of your choice, with audition cuts to make any audition process easier. I can also provide a backing track of this music, to rehearse with, or backing tracks to perform with at events/concerts.
I also provide Music Theory training, Piano tuition, and classical accompaniment, along with orchestral arrangements, transcription, and other music typist services.
First 'class' offered free is a consultation meeting - where we can work out what is best for you. Whether you need repertoire or vocal coaching. This can be done in person or over the phone.
