    About Me



    Freddie is a composer based in South London. His music has been performed in the UK on BBC Radio 3 and by several professional ensembles including the BBC Symphony Orchestra, Aurora Orchestra, Royal Northern Sinfonia, and Oxford Philharmonic. He has also received premieres abroad in Palestine, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia. In November 2017, Freddie conducted the premiere of his first opera A Sketch of Slow Time. The 90-minute, one act work, traces the affair of Mathilde Schönberg (wife of the composer Arnold Schönberg) with the artist Richard Gerstl and the tragic events that unfold.

    The visual arts have played a substantial inspiration for much of Freddie’s recent work. Atlas for large symphony orchestra that was premiered in September 2019, imagines music as sonic sculpture. Rather that creating a sounding narrative that progresses through time, the piece creates an objective depiction of the mythological titan Atlas, viewing him from different angles and perspectives.

    More practically, Freddie’s music over the past year has developed alongside visual art as part a growing collaboration with artist Rachel Gadsden. The duo have now created several performance pieces that combine live painting and music. Much of the score is constructed using structured improvisation and as such, the music is able to respond to the art being created, while the art can respond to the sounds. These works are a fusion of both mediums, co-mingling sight with music and sound with space. Three of these pieces, All at Sea, Ships of the Desert, and Displaced Voices, were created in as part of Narrative of Displacement, a University of Birmingham led project, working with refugees from both Syria and Iraq. These pieces were scored for a mix of western and Arabic instruments and included London based Syrian Oud player Rihab Azar and Syrian percussionist Jamal Al-sakka.

    Freddie graduated with a BA (Hons.) in music from St Hilda’s College, Oxford, studying composition with Martyn Harry. He is currently completing an MMus in composition at the Royal Academy of Music, studying with Morgan Hayes. Freddie has had lessons with composers based in both the UK and abroad including Hans Abrahamsen, Tansy Davies, Rolf Wallin, Huw Watkins, and Anna Meredith.

    Piano Lessons for Levels Beginner-Advanced, Classical and Contemporary styles
    I am a professional pianist offering private piano and theory lessons to students of all levels. Having 12 years of teaching experience, I enjoy motivating my students with music of their own preferred style and interest, whether that be classical or contemporary. My main goal is to promote a positive experience and love for music-making during the course of learning piano. If the student is interested in a more serious approach, I can also guide preparation for grades 1-8 of the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) exams. I am currently pursuing my third degree (Postgraduate Concertsoloist) at the Royal Conservatoire Antwerp, and have obtained my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Piano Performance/Music from University of Minnesota and TCU-Fort Worth, TX, USA. My experience includes collaboration with many different instrumentalists and singers, performing as soloist with orchestra (also as harpist), and receiving top prizes in several competitions.

    SONGWRITING course with intensive and result-oriented methods
    English Translation: contact me please SONGS generally consist of chord and text lines. But where does that information come from and how do you make something out of nothing? How do you make that one great hIT or how strongly does your new song affect your love? Well, that's called "inspiration processing" and how does that work? Well, I'll tell you that in my course. If you already play the guitar or piano, you are one step ahead. Your instrument is like a trampoline that offers you more options to go further and higher. Most 'songs' are born at the craziest moments. A good songwriter his / her antennas are always open :-) and for some it is a continuous activity. During my course I teach you through all sorts of tips and tricks (including: Travel Chord Duo Method - One Four Five and minor input - Key Word Designation and Relative Chord Progressions etc.) how you can achieve strong songs. For me it is a daily activity and I have been writing all my life for others and sometimes for myself. All in all I have sold more than a million copies worldwide as an author / composer / performer. Is that little or is that a lot? I do not know. It doesn't interest me that much anymore. I want to share my knowledge about how to write a song with motivated people who want to go further than just replaying others' songs. Whether they get stuck somewhere during composing and who are not afraid to seek advice. Music is a life flirt. There are only two types of music: good and bad ... Do you have a foundation of chords, do you want to know how to make a good song .....? Just book an hour to get started. That is the scan hour. Are we lying together and is there a click? If you book and I confirm, then you also know who I am and where I hide :-) Not satisfied after the first 'lesson'? Money Back. Danny

    Music Production / Computer Aided Music Course
    No matter what genre you like, by taking my course you will learn how to manage the different stages of music production. I detail it in all aspects: mastery of the software, choice of sounds, structure, mixing, effects. The objective of the courses is the acquisition of artistic as well as technical skills. I adapt to different profiles: age, level, pace, style, goals. --- I give lessons via webcam on Google Meet which allow sharing of the screen, as well as the sound. This has the advantage of allowing people to share their screen and the sound of their software with me from their computer, and therefore promote learning even with busy schedules, or even upset in these times of health crisis and covers -fire. It also allows me to listen and advise in real time, as much on the creative aspect (composition, vocals, arrangements) as on the mixing techniques. I adapt to the needs of creation, so I encourage people to apply my advice directly and concretely, during the course.
