Pianist & film composer teaching piano & theory in central Edinburgh location

Methodology

Simply playing a piece of music is great fun, but understanding why and how the music works and really making it your own is so much more satisfying. Once you learn the rules, it's more fun to break them!

Experience

I've been playing piano for over 20 years. I gained my BMus (Hons) at Edinburgh Napier University and obtained my Masters in Composition for Screen at the University of Edinburgh in 2012. I've taught privately since leaving university in 2012.

Callum's CV

After studying classical piano & composition at Edinburgh Napier University, I gained an MSc in Composition for Screen from Edinburgh University, graduating with Distinction. Shortly after university, I was invited to intern with noted Marvel animation composer Guy Michelmore at his studio in Chichester. In 2013, I composed the score for director Scott Harris’ debut feature film Being Ginger which is currently available on Netflix. I have scored numerous short films, including some by 2015 Cannes Palme d’Or nominee Dan Hodgson and 2014 Scottish BAFTA nominee Duncan Cowles.

From 2013 to late 2016, I was the resident pianist at 10 Hill Place Hotel. I performed every Friday and Saturday evening for four hours at a time. I pride myself in having a wide ranging repertoire which encompasses a number of genres, including: jazz; classical; show-tunes; pop & rock; film soundtracks; funk & soul; R&B. I have a particular interest in improvisation and am a confident sight reader. This is a particularly useful skill to have when a customer has a song request which I do not know but have the music for.

In November 2012, I co-founded The 2D Workshop, a 2D animation/VFX/music studio in Edinburgh. As Head of Music & Sound, I am responsible for composing, recording & mixing original musical material for clients. In addition to my musical duties, I have also acted as a sound designer on a number of projects. In 2015 the company released its first original short film, Toonocalypse, which was co-written by myself and the film’s director and company manager, Owen Rixon. The film has received very positive feedback for its writing and its visuals and, since going online, has received over 50k views across a variety of platforms.
