Disjointed Waltz - 3rd Prize, EPTA 2015) - Reviewer Pamela Wedgwood

"Wow! What a great piece, and a true realization of the title. You captured the mood perfectly with some dynamic time and key changes. The time change to 6/8 worked really well and your syncopated rhythms were very effective .... A very good effort indeed. Well done - keep writing!"

An evocative waltz with a few surprises. It contains some dynamic time and key changes. It has been written with the advanced player in mind, though rubato could be used to make things easier. The changeover to 6/8 works well and the syncopated rhythms are very effective.

Mourne Passage - 1st Prize, EPTA 2014 - Reviewer Camden Reeves

"A substantial and strong piece - lots of excellent ideas here, and very well executed.....There is a trace of the influence of Debussy, with the colourful added note harmonies. Very good use of pedal points, and the unusual harmonic and tonal twists are very effective."

A captivating descriptive piece depicting an Irish stream from its small pure beginning high in the hills gaining volume and depth as it torrents through the forest. A reel interrupts the flow as the water dances over rocks and echoes of the stream are heard as it is swallowed up by the ocean. Winner of the 2014 European Piano Composers Competition,

'I inherited a diligent, hard-working 16yo boy. He found a piece on the internet that was very flashy and long, but it was without composer or copyright, not eligible to be a part of his exam repertoire. Thankfully, I knew of the Composer Community, found this great piece, and he immediately liked it. It is exactly as the description says--substantial and captivating, depicting a stream and its journey. WIN for both teacher and student!'
