Conductor

From a love of singing sprung a love for choirs, and conducting followed naturally from there.

As well as my choirs, I absolutely love the new music group I founded, No Dice Collective. There I get to commission new pieces as well as work on our podcast and coordinate initiatives to get more people interested in contemporary classical music.

Joined the choir at work and spent my lunch hour singing… it was joyous and now I feel wonderful.

Jess N-H (UoM staff choir)

Always professional in his approach, extremely patient & sensitive to the choir’s strengths & weaknesses.

Over a year with our community choir (Salford Sings) he has shaped a random group of ‘non-singers’ into a real choir with confidence in our ability to perform.

He has transformed us into choral addicts, as well as improving our breathing & social life!
