Founder of Koa Music
I am a composer, teacher, video producer, and author. I was born in the UK but now live in Connecticut with my wife and daughter.
Playing music is a fun way for me to immerse myself in different cultures and traditions. I started with classical piano, jazz piano, orchestra, and choir. More recently I have branched out to steel pan, klezmer band, early music, and Brazilian choro.
My compositions are a celebration of my musical interests and influences. I write contemporary music which is accessible to students and amateurs. My music is typically tonal; it often incorporates extended harmonies and syncopation, and usually retains a very clear structure. My style been most influenced by late 19th and early 20th century composers, jazz, and folk music from around the world.
I set up Koa Music to share my compositions with others, and to provide a fresh choice of music for players everywhere. I truly hope that you enjoy my music. I am always interested to hear from you, so please get in touch and let me know your thoughts!
