Summer 2016 Update
It's been a great year so far and I have been busy travelling, playing, teaching, writing and publishing. Songschemes has been steadily growing and I had the pleasure of presenting my work between the 1st and the 4th of June 2016, at the Association of Popular Music Education (APME) international conference at Berklee College of Music in Boston, USA. APME was created to advocate for popular music education and its advancement as a discipline. It provides educational opportunities for teachers and students, honours the rich history of popular music, and develops innovative ways to create, perform, and teach it.
I will be on tour with Jane McDonald in September and October on the 'Making Memories' tour. We previewed the show in Woking and at the Opera house in Blackpool recently and had a great reaction, so the full tour should be fun. The show features some excellent material, including my own original track, "I'll Be There". You can download the track here. A full list of dates is below along with some pictures and tweets.
