Musically, I am a composer, conductor, teacher, and play various instruments (to varying degrees of competence). I also narrate audiobooks, but that’s not really what this site is about, although it may crop up.
I am primarily a classical musician, having studied piano and clarinet from a young age, and then doing a music degree specialising in composing and conducting .
