I have a great deal of experience in working with composers on a variety of projects, with services ranging from aural transcription and engraving to arranging and mentoring compositional technique.
Clients have included Nitin Sawhney on projects with Yo-Yo Ma and the Barbican/NYO, Erland Cooper, Anna Phoebe, Hannah Peel on work with Paul Weller, and Anathema's Vincent Cavanagh.
I was also Visiting Tutor in Composition at the Purcell School, London's specialist school for gifted young musicians, in 2019, and continue to give regular seminars there.
My experience as a freelance score consultant is varied, though I tend to work on new music that treads the line between the so-called 'classical' and 'alternative' spheres.
My major area of expertise is work for strings and choir, though I have also worked on several projects for full symphony orchestra.
I work well in diverse contexts, at times engaging deeply by guiding composers through different options for their musical visions, and other times working to tight deadlines and copy-editing briefs in advance of live performances and recording sessions.
Previous clients include Nitin Sawhney CBE, working as transcriber, engraver, and proofreader on commissions for Yo-Yo Ma and the Barbican (featuring the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain), as well as for his sell-out orchestral retrospective at the Royal Albert Hall in 2019; Erland Cooper, transcribing, engraving, and consulting on his solo arrangements since 2018, and as arranger for his live shows; Anna Phoebe for her ongoing multimodal science communication project Between Worlds, during which I've acted as transcriber, consultant, and additional arranger; and Anathema's Vincent Cavanagh as arranger and consultant.
As a conductor's assistant, I worked under Hannah Peel during her work with Paul Weller for his orchestral shows at London's Royal Festival Hall, with responsibilities including advising on orchestral parts and high-speed score-editing.
