Performance Direction and Co-ordination experience includes: operatic works, youth musicals, community productions and  conferences. My links with contemporary vocal composers include the direction of musicals and short operas by Betty Roe MBE. In particular I have championed community productions on topics related to my home town, including ‘Brunel the Little Man in the Tall Hat’ (2006 and 2016) and Swindon the Opera (2012), both featuring Roe’s music.  I have also been instrumental in bringing the vocal compositions of the late Nigel Draycott  into print and has acted as a consultant in the updating of the Trinity Laban singing exam syllabus.
