My wonderful community is Harlow in Essex where I have lived since age 4, coming from the East End of London. 
My musical history is teaching based which I did for over 30 years, helping many people realise their musical aspirations.  These skills naturally led to composition as I spent years analysing what constituted appealing and accessible music, and what did not! 
I compose for pianists, adult mixed choirs, accappella chamber choirs, instrumentalists, solo singers, children’s songs and music for the loss of loved ones, indeed writing ‘Requiem for Jane’ in memory of the tragic passing of my own dear little sister.
