Maybe I can help you?
I am an experienced, well-qualified and collegially minded freelance church-musician and organist based in north London. I work with Anglican and Catholic parishes and Nonconformist congregations that are seeking short-notice, short-term musical leadership not only for Sunday worship but also for weekday daytime and evening events. I have up-to-date ‘enhanced DBS clearance’ (more …) and professional ‘public liability’ insurance.
I studied organ-performance and choral conducting on the Advanced Post-graduate Performers course at the Royal Academy of Music (University of London) and have a PhD in historical musicology (Goldsmiths, University of London). I hold a Masters degree in Contemporary Liturgical Music (APU Cambridge) and a Bachelors degree in Music Education (University of Winchester) as well as diplomas from both the Royal College of Music (ARCM: organ performance with honours) and the Royal Academy of Music (LRAM: organ teaching).
I have successfully combined my musical career not only with that of a classroom teacher in inner-London primary and secondary schools – I hold UK Qualified Teacher Status (more …) – but also as a university-based project manager both at UCL and at Birkbeck, University of London.
