I lecture in music for the Open University as well as freelance.
I organise workshops and participatory music events for all ages and abilities – using electronic and acoustic instruments. I also organise workshops with artists from other disciplines – especially dance.
I am currently running a course Play the World’s Music at the Old Fire Station Oxford every Saturday from 2 pm.
Recordings and scores of the music I am using in this course are in the page Play the World’s Music (under construction). This is material I have recorded and scored for use in the course or else recorded by the excellent band Confluence which was formed from participants in the course.
I have been teaching for Footloose Arts – an organisation which specialises in creating music projects for all ages, abilities and backgrounds. Details of a successful project with an Oxford School (the Universe Project) are held at Footloose Arts
I helped organise last year’s Cohesion Festival in Oxford for which I created a participatory piece with Bruno Guastalla for which we rehearsed and prepared anyone who wanted to be part of the event. Details are at Cohesion 2011
