Each year I provide Choral workshops and guest conducting for many choirs, if you would like a Choral workshop, read on and see what I can offer you, I am happy to travel almost anywhere and can either work on voice related techniques or on set pieces of music, whatever you would like, I am happy to tailor make for you!
My workshops are tailored to the needs of the group, they can be based around my own music, the accessible choral library series, or works by other composers, with over 25 years of leading English Cathedral visits, it may be that which interests you, (that can be combined with a talk about life as a chorister at one of the Uks most famous Cathedrals)
I am also available to work with composition students on their pieces and also give detailed illustrated lectures, for a recent residency in a USA University, I wrote a 20 minute choral piece, gave a lecture on English Cathedral music, discussed compositional techniques with students and gave a pre concert talk prior to the performance of the newly written piece.
Booking a workshop or visit
For UK events there is a set fee and travelling expenses and events can range from all day workshops to afternoon workshops and evening perfromances, they can be used as recruitment days or as come and sing events, previously I have held workshops for Stokesley Choral society, Durham Choral society, The National association of choirs and many other groups
For Overseas events there is a requirement for the host venue or group of venues to book and pay for return flights, accomodation can be in a hotel or with guest hosts, (if the event includes a commission, or if the choirs have already purchased sets of my music then the fee is generally waived so long as expenses are covered), if there is no commission then a fee will be negotiated.
Please do not hesitate to get in touch with me if you would like to discuss plans, you will find me very flexible, good fun to work with and together we will make fine music!
