Music And Me
A keen amateur who enjoys playing music (currently with the London Saxophone Choir) - and composing and arranging it too!
My love of music started as a boy singing with my local church choir (St. Mary's Balham) and after a hiatus of almost 20 years decided I wanted to get back into music. So I started learning to play the flute, ending up in the Sydney Flute Choir. It was here I discovered that I wanted to arrange and compose as well. After all, that way you get to play what you want!
Another hiatus, but not quite as long and I find that love of music has never quite gone away - it's just that my fingers don't move as fast as I would like them to. Now I think I'm back for good and wondering why I ever took those breaks.
All my compositions and arrangements are available from Score Exchange or MusicaNeo, and you are welcome to download, photocopy and perform however you like.
My most recent composition is Lamentione, a piece for flute and piano inspired by the emotions of Sturm und Drang of Haydn's Lamentione Symphony
