It is a real honour to work with Jay. His sensitivity, attention to detail and dedication to his craft is outstanding. His understanding of mood, characterís emotions and the audienceís need for pace and structure in a story are a real asset to his compositions for the screen.

I receive a lot of mixes for mastering and they range from those requiring major surgery and restoration through to what I can only refer to as requiring 'a light polish'. Of those in the latter category there are that rare few that are exceptional to work with, are highly accomplished mixes and reflect both an acute sensitivity for the music and the performance while also being a great pleasure to listen to.
Jay Stannard's mixes of Quiet Rebellion's work, featuring the remarkable voice of Shaun T Hunter, definitely fall into that exceptional latter category, are indeed highly accomplished and a pleasure to both listen to and work with at the mastering stage.
Lynn Kelly Cheshire Primary School 2012
Jay works every year with the Year 4 pupils of [our] Primary School. The children are involved in all aspects of performance and composition, based on current curricular work, and thoroughly enjoy the weeks of hard work and practicing before performing to their friends and family. The pupils who work with Jay show an increased self confidence and self esteem and this impacts on all areas of their learning development, especially Literacy. Also, children who have English as an additional language have demonstrated an accelerated increase in confidence and language skills, and often sing with Jay before they attempt to speak to adults and peers in school. Jay's knowledge of curricular learning objectives and outcomes is outstanding and he has become an invaluable member of our team.

Jay Stannard has recently recorded and produced two songs for me for a demo CD.
The results were first class, the quality simply matches anything you would expect from a major record label.
Following this work Jay is now producing backing tracks to help me with a contemporary jazz project.
The quality of the backing tracks is again first class displaying great attention to detail which is a testament to Jay's excellent musicianship.
You'll find Jay to be friendly, professional and highly skilled with a real focus on delivering high quality work in a timely manner.
I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Jay's services to other musicians and look forward to working with him in future.
Matthew Plant Choirmaster September 2010
Jay Stannard has arranged and produced for our Choir two backing tracks for our 2010 Christmas season: Bachís Jesu, joy of manís desiring and I know a rose tree springing by Praetorius.
Both pieces of work are of the very highest quality, inspirational in mood and sensitively rendered for our young singers. The children will be undoubtedly moved to give their utmost best when performing, aspiring to match the high standards set by Jayís instrumentation. Jay was sympathetic to our time constraints, and delivered his work with no fuss, dependably meeting the delivery times he quoted. I am thrilled with the results and would not hesitate to seek Jayís services again. I canít wait for our Advent Mass!

Just to say your song went down a storm yesterday to a packed Symphony Hall. My youth choir performed it with piano, guitar and viola and it was talk of the show. There will be many more performances to come.
