Although classically trained I lecture in the use of Logic Pro and music production techniques. My masters degree is in film composition and I can teach all aspects of orchestration, using sampled instruments, score writing and final mix. I also teach classical piano.
10 years classroom teaching in secondary and FE sectors as well as my own continuing study. I have composed and produced music for several corporate and commercial video projects that have won awards within their industries. I have recorded and mixed both classical and pop ensembles.
