Composing

I am willing to accept commissions for all types of works, for educational,amateur and professional use. Pieces can be tailored according to the specific instrumental or vocal forces you have available. Please contact me if you would like to discuss your ideas further.
Having previously composed incidental music for a video produced by the Domestic Violence Unit, and for the experimental film short "Sculpted", I would be very keen to write further music for Film, TV and Radio.
I can also compose bespoke music for weddings including Wedding Marches/Processionals/Recessionals and background music for receptions.
