Working with children and young people is central to my work as a composer. Much of my music has been composed for young audiences - details here:

I am a composition tutor at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, where I teach undergraduate and post-graduate composers on a one-to-one basis. I also teach composition classes to 10 to 18 year olds in the RWCMD Junior Conservatoire, where we present a concert of original compositions by the pupils every summer term.

I am the resident composer for Dyfed Young Composers, a scheme which takes composition workshops into secondary schools across West Wales, and my flute and piano piece, ‘Night Dances’ is a set work for the music ‘A’ level syllabus in Wales.

Over the years, I have worked in collaboration with writers, singers and theatre practitioners internationally, leading creative music projects in schools for companies including Opera North, Welsh National Opera, California State University and the Vadstena Academy in Sweden.
