Musical Director, Composer, Arranger
I had a very varied and exciting time at Trinity [Laban]. From accompanying the College Choir to playing French Song at the Wigmore Hall for Prizegiving. Antony Lindsay, James Gaddarn and Felicity Young were the most important influences on me and helped me to make my career in Music. I was President of the Student’s Union 77/78 – the last year the post was non-sabbatical!Mike Dixon
