I’M WORKING ON #NEWMUSIC ! #np #soundcloud #hiphop #composer #freelancer #musician #music teacher #phdlife

Hey everybody!

So I’m working on a song for my PhD project. This song is basically about the conversation I had with Jesus whilst I was on my hospital bed when I had to take time out from my studies.
Here’s a snippet of what I’m up to enjoy!

#New Ways To #Pray #Christian #Jesus

Hello everybody,

A short one today I’m v. busy. Two days ago I was very tired after doing a lot and praying a lot. So when it came to bedtime prayers I was very tired. (Every morning I pray and read the Bible before getting out of bed and every night I pray and read the Bible before I go to sleep).

So I decided that that night I would try something different as I was exhausted physically and emotionally. I invited Jesus to come and sit on the bed with me and listen to Christian music with me. Music that I wrote actually and just meditated on the lyrics, what they mean, what I can do better, how can I use these, the themes, reflecting on my relationship with Jesus, where we have been and asking Jesus questions.

I found it refreshing just to meditate in Jesus’ presence. The stress just washed off me and I don’t remember when I fell asleep! 

Try it. Put on some Christian music, if you write Christian music and it’s recorded put it on! Invite God, Jesus and The Holy Spirit to come and sit with you, meditate on God, ask Jesus questions and bask in the Holy Spirit.

Much love,

I also do sound engineering.


Another thing that I do is workshops. [This is a video]


Over this summer I ran a series of workshops for children aged 5-14 at a community centre in North London 🙂


The venue I was at kindly provided drums and percussion toys!!


This meant that sometimes the workshops were very loud so I brought ear plugs to protect the children’s ears!


As I am quite technical as well as artistic my workshops involve learning about music as well as learning about the technology that produces it!


One time I was in a small room.



And then a couple of times I was in a big Sanctuary of a church/community centre. [This is a video]


This summer my workshops culminated in a group Foley project in which the children aged 5-14 produced original sound fx’s and a soundtrack to a 2 min 30 sec clip of Tom and Jerry. [This is a video]


I gave them different tasks, one of them was the Producer, here is a picture of the production schedule she created using the mini-whiteboards I gave them. It looks great and she was only 10!



They did an awesome job and I am very pleased! (I can’t share the copyrighted material online).

Tom & Jerry

The children loved it! 😀


Children’s work is very rewarding! Just look at the smile on my face!
