Patrick has worked with children from many different social and ethnic backgrounds, both in London and around the UK. He enjoys their enthusiasm and believes that music workshops are important both during school hours and as an extra-curricular activity. He aims to teach basic musicality and instrumental/vocal techniques in a fast-paced, fun and creative environment.
Patrick is a music leader and accompanist for Ark Choirs, Armonico Consort Academies and runs musical in a day workshops all around the country.
Patrick is also a vocal coach and ensemble leader at Emil Dale Academy Hitchin and has previously worked at Hackney Music Development Trust Stagecoach Welwyn/Hatfield, Tickledom Theatre School, Mad Hatters Theatre School and the Nichola Reeve Theatre Academy in Watford.
Patrick has worked with children with a broad range of Special Educational Needs in a safe and creative working environment.
Patrick along with his colleague, composer William Carslake have worked directly in SEN schools creating music, lyrics and stories directly from the children's ideas. Projects through Camden Music Hub, Armonico Consort and Turtle Key Arts have been both extremely successful and rewarding for all involved.
A programme for BBC Radio 4 will be broadcast in Autumn 2017 following a series of workshop days Patrick and Will led in Telford.
