Music Composition - Modern Classical composition for ensembles, orchestra, ballet, opera

I specalize in composing music for ensembles, soloists, and orchestra - with a Masters of Music Composition from the Koninklijke Conservatorum Antwerpen. My goal is to pass along knowledge and coach young musicians who wish to create their own music, either as a composer, or simply to stimulate their own performance practice.

I have a background of classical, folk, and various popular music styles including heavy metal, rock, pop, etc.

We can work through the development of your works, touching on relevant aspects of music history, and implementing them into your compositional practice.

About Me

What is most rewarding in teaching is to be able to pass on knowledge to someone keen to learn. I’m quite open and my lessons although focused on bagpipes encompass all aspects of musicality - having a Masters in music I am quite versed in this and know how to break down all the little bits in a way that’s digestible for the beginner, or interesting for a more advanced player.

I like a student who is genuinely interested and is willing to put in some time throughout the week, and shows up at the lesson having made some progress. My job is to help you along your journey, not necessarily to push you up the hill myself.

I have taught as a TA at Acadia University in Canada, lecturing the music composition class, and correcting exams/assignments for the theory class - this was extremely rewarding for me, I was confronted by a variety of skillsets and learning approaches which I had to adapt more or less to each student.

I’m a nomad in a way, having lived in three different countries in the last four years - whatever background you’re from I’m certain we will get along!

If you’re looking to test out the pipes, give me a shout!

Best,

A.

Great class, very informative and pedagogical. A very approachable, friendly and professional person. It was great
I offer lessons on the chanter, as well as on the full pipes themselves! Home in Canada I've worked with kids, to young adults, to the elderly - if you're looking for an introduction to the pipes, or to hone your skills then I look forward to hearing from you!
