This project was initially about making one-page solo pieces, and the idea was born in the spring of 2020, when lockdown had us all staying bravely at home. I wanted to create short solo/duo pieces, to inspire not only others but also myself, and ended up creating a pleasing array of little musical poems.
I discovered I love this way of working, and that there is also considerable interest in small, personal pieces of music. I am therefore happily continuing to tailor-make small-scale pieces for musicians of all levels, backgrounds, and persuasions. Most of all, I am curious about the sort of input my musicians (yes, you!) might like to give: colours, moods, ideas, inspirations.
When the world slowly started coming alive again and normality cautiously crept back in through the cracks, I adapted my way of working to suit my post-lockdown life, in which my time is again more precious. I can no longer do this for free, but work with realistic budgets and happily offer a discounted rate to students (and other young professionals). Turning these creative dialogues with such a variety of musicians into a sustainable part of my work is proving to be a true delight.
