I was pleased to hear from The Birmingham Schools Orchestra who have commissioned me to write an 11 minute suite based on the Nutcracker Suite but using melodies by the Beatles. Hopefully the performance will take place later this year.

In the two fields in which I work, pop and film, my work process can vary from one extreme to another.

When I am hired, whether as an arranger, an orchestrator or conductor, the amount of information I can get from the client will make my job harder or easier...
