MAP at Wayland Academy

I am very pleased to have been asked to work with Year 10 and Year 11 students on the BTEC Performing Arts course at Wayland Academy in Watton, as part of the Music Arts Project programme in Brandon and the surround area.

The students on this course train in three areas on musical theatre – dancing, acting, an singing – and I shall be working with them in a Musical Director capacity, leading vocal rehearsals and taking charge of all the musical aspects of their work on this course.


Natalia Avdeeva ‘Explosive’ exhibition

I am delighted to have been invited back to Pellafort Press this coming Wednesday (20th November) to play the piano at the opening night of a brand new exhibition – ‘Explosive‘ – by London-based Russian painter Natalia Avdeeva.

The exhibition itself will run for two weeks (20th November – 5th December).  As well as being a showcase for Natalia’s wonderful paintings, the display will feature a short video about Natalia and her personal approach to creating her artwork.  In collaboration with Natalia and videographer Sophie Shaw, I have contributed an all-original soundtrack for this video, written to capture the energy and vitality of Natalia’s way of working, and her passion and vibrance as an artist.

For access to the opening evening of the exhibition on 20th November, please see details here.
