I've loved composing since I got my first Casio keyboard for Christmas when I was eight. Through my piano teaching and arranging work I have many opportunities to hear new pieces and love seeing pupils experimenting with different styles.
As I compose I find that my pieces seem to take on a life of their own and I enjoy exploring my own harmonic language and style, influenced by my love of polyphnic textures and dissonance. I often start with a pictorial concept or idea, and a simple melodic motif which comes through experimenting and improvising at the piano. I then go with the flow! I love the way that ideas and images seem to come to mind as the melodic shape and harmonies find their voice.
