‘Tic has been teaching me for almost three years now and I cannot articulate how much she has helped me. Tic has helped me understand how operate intimidating software, how to create a high standard tracks and how to have patience when working with Sibelius. She always knows what I want with my music and she always knows how to help.

Tic has been instrumental, if you pardon the pun, in my music journey and I can’t thank her enough for giving me her time and passing on her invaluable knowledge. Genius!’ – Lily Beau

Music Workshop Leadership

As a music workshop leader, Tic specialises in using music technology as a platform to provide young people with access to music making. Through the incorporation of technology she helps participants to create and perform with their own musical instruments using techniques such as recording, editing, production and touch based triggering technologies.

She believes that technology provides young people with a familiar interface for music creation. It removes obstacles such as traditional instrumental performance and enables young people to freely create music which is bespoke and authentic to them.

She has also presented workshops incorporating composition, song writing, percussion, music to picture and music to game.

Tic has recently completed a masters dissertation titled:

The Creative Application of Technology Within the Music Workshop Setting:

Can Technology Enhance Access to Music Making for Young People with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities?
