I am really excited to have finished my composition for Trumpet and Piano written for Cornet Player Paul Wood.  It is called 'The Composer Odyssey and although classical romantic in style it has very much a latin/cuban feel.

I am in the middle of writing a new piano composition called 'The Clock' and a piece for violinist Michael Bochmann.


I am writing a new tutor book aimed at retaining those 11+ students who are beginners.  I have developped a unique method to help students sound like pro's within a few weeks.
