My work is published by two of the world’s biggest music companies, Warner/Chappell and BMG. It is used extensively in TV programming and advertising around the globe.
Highlights include Films of Love and War (BBC / Narrator - Richard Madden); trailers for Game of Thrones (HBO) & Wolf Creek (Lionsgate); LG TV (TV advert); Rio Olympics (NBC); Top Gear (BBC); The Voice (BBC); Quartet (Theatrical trailer - Dustin Hoffman). Some of my music is available commercially:
Piano lessons take place on a Yamaha U1 piano which can be recorded in high quality using professional software. The studio is custom fitted with sound absorption from GIK acoustics, providers for many of the world’s top studios. A Komplete Kontrol S88 is used to play midi, allowing the student to experiment with different sounds or to record without the need for microphone set-up.
Composition lessons can take place within Logic Pro or Sibelius or at the piano. I specialise in mentoring budding film & TV composers and can assist in areas such as live & midi orchestration, production techniques, writing to picture, harmony and voicing.
The studio is set in an attractive garden in Harrogate. There is a small waiting area with tea and coffee available.
