What people say:

‘As musical director his contagious enthusiasm, creativity and flexibility most certainly supported the cast and enabled them to give of their best. His positivity and encouragement also helped the less confident performers too, which made the production very inclusive. It was a pleasure to work with him, where he showed his flair as a talented pianist and conducted his band with the utmost professionalism.’ 
Kim Porter, producer of ‘Oliver’ (2016)
