Experience / Qualifications

Musical Director and Composer - Youth Theatre Kenya

Nothing can help a musician understand music better than music theory. Whether it be improvising over jazz chord progressions, writing a score to a film or even producing beats for rappers and singers, having a good understanding of music theory will make life a lot easier for you. In this class I will teach you the parts of music theory you need for ABRSM, but also how to use it in your compositions or performances, a tool all musicians should have in their arsenal.
Do you want to make beats you can post online or sell to rappers and singers? Or even just beats for you and your friends to freestyle on? Look no further. As a Spotify Verified artist, I will teach you the tricks of the trade when it comes to music production and how I have been able to produce beats for musicians and myself to publish far and wide.
