"Music can change the world, because it can change people."

- Bono 

My musical journey began at the age of 2, through the acclaimed Yamaha Junior Music Course. By the time I was 10, I'd become a musical nuisance. 

I'd play ‘air guitar’ on the broomstick and use my mother’s cookware and crockery as my own custom-made drum kit. Throughout adolescence, I progressed further in piano with tutelage from the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) and it was during this period, I developed a real interest in music composition. 

I added qualifications in the Australian Music Examination Board (AMEB) syllabus, which provided a profound and succinct understanding of the musical conventions within the western world… and later travelled to Mumbai in India to deepen my comprehension of the theoretical aspects behind North Indian Classical Music.  As a result, my own compositions most often reflect this meeting of East and West and I look forward to composing music that crosses between these traditions, to be used as scores for video and film productions.  

But if you want something specific written for your next project (whatever style or genre), I can do that. I can also provide backing tracks for singers and composers. 

If you play an instrument and now want to know how to write your own music, I can help. Perhaps you just want to learn how to put your ideas down on paper or into music notation software? Again, just give me a call.

“Shaun was a very important part of our project ‘Devdas the Musical’. The show had a cast of 60 dancers and actors and over 15 musicians who collaborated for over a year to bring it to fruition. 

“Shaun arranged, composed and played a lot of the music for the 2-hour long show, which played to packed theatres in Sydney and Canberra over two years. Shaun's background in fusing Indian and western music along with his ability to play many instruments really helped to lift the music of the show. The reviewers and critics appreciated the live music within the show and Shaun’s dedication and enthusiasm was a very important contributor to the show’s success.”
