Bass Guitar ability
Influences: Muse, Radiohead, Dream Theater, Beatles, Elp, Mike Oldfield
I play guitar - classical, acoustic and electric and keyboards - piano, organ and synths. I play and compose mostly classical now but I am still very interested in rock. I am currently completing my first classical album and a rock album. My classical style is 'contemporary classical' which I describe as 'tonal with 20th. century developments'. My rock album I describe as 'angst-ridden and apocalyptic' in a range from heavy rock to acoustic via pop, electronic and classical.
I have a teaching qualification the Cert.Ed. in Adult & F.E. in which my specialist subject was music and I give individual guitar lessons and have given group lessons in music theory (in which I have ABRSM Grade 8) and history.
I have recently turned my attention to film music and I am composing a piece entitled 'Music for an Imaginary Film' a line I am pursuing although I'm not used to 'working to a brief.'
I am ambitious for my music and confident that I can achieve success.
