I put together programmes of recorded music ranging from Great Film Music, Musical Landscapes, Light British Music or concentrate on the music of one or two contrasting/related composers. Musical excerpts are usually short and varied, interspersed with humorous anecdotes and little-known facts. The music selected is always striking, catchy and guaranteed to entertain. I occasionally talk about and play extracts from my own compositions and discuss the inspiration behind a particular work and the actual composing process.
I am happy to produce a program for your specific requirements or special events such as “Great Film Music”, “Light British Classics” and “Popular Classics” or offer a number of my own personal favourite programmes for you to choose from.
“Festive Delights” as well as Classical and Film Music at Christmas. This talk is similar to the Classical and Film Music Presentations though for the Festive season, my music will have a Christmas theme.Views: 94 | Enquiries: 0
I have worked in education for over 30 years and as a public speaker/freelance educator for almost 8 years. I am passionate about my subject and have a personal family input which puts a unique spin on the topic. I have a passion for music too and I have worked in music education for over 30 years and as an orchestral percussionist and composer, with several new works to my credit during the past few years. I have a wealth of knowledge about all periods of classical music. I enjoy addressing audiences of all ages and tailor my talks accordingly.
Talks last from 50-90 minutes depending on what is required. As I include a number of photographs to illustrate my Holocaust talk, I would require the use of a laptop/PC, projector and screen.
