I am a composer, from Nottingham, living in London, and I have just graduated from the Royal College of Music with a first class degree in Composition.
My compositional tastes have changed widely from when I began writing, but I have settled into Musical Theater, which I think is natural as my first introduction to Music and Theater was attending the local Panto. Since then, I have rapidly developed my understanding of the musical form, and I am always exploring deeper into the canon.
My first musical (called No Prior Experience) for which I wrote the Book and Lyrics and of course the music has been in development for two years. Writing that show gave me a basic understanding of dramaturgy and lyric writing, both of which I found captivating but difficult. As I have now left education, and I am beginning my professional career, I have decided that I want to write the music, and find collaborators for the duty of Book or Lyric writing.
My ambition is to write four musicals in two years, so that I can gain as much experience as possible and build a portfolio.
The music and a synopsis of No Prior Experience can be heard here (NOTE, the tracks are MIDI’s with the melody played by either a flute or clarinet patch) –> https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1ASsic3iNmcioQz6OXUtrm_8PT04ulpJi?usp=sharing
