Dr Liz Lane
Dr Liz Lane studied at the Royal College of Music and at Cardiff University, where she was recently awarded a PhD in Composition; she now works as a composer, arranger and lecturer.
Liz has collaborated extensively with the late composer and explorer David Fanshawe; arrangements include Pacific Song (first performed in Miami, USA and recorded by the Bournemouth Symphony Chorus), and the brass band and orchestra versions of The Lord’s Prayer from African Sanctus (recently performed by the Black Dyke Band, Orchestra of Opera North and the Northern Sinfonia). Liz has also arranged music on two albums by cult Bristol band The Blue Aeroplanes and worked with the wind ensemble New Harmonie, creating arrangements for their work in special schools, residential nursing homes and day care centres. A new orchestral arrangement of David Fanshawe’s film music was premiered at the Royal Festival Hall in March 2012.
Liz is delighted to be working at LEARN and looking forward to meeting and working with students on the Arranging Music Workshop Online course.
