Dr Gareth Churchill
I trained as a composer in London with Rhian Samuel and in Cardiff with Anthony Powers (PhD Composition 2007).
I have many years experience of being a private teacher of musical composition/theory. From 2005-2008, I was an associate lecturer in the Cardiff University School of Music and since 2009 has been a resident artist/tutor on the composers’ course at Aberystwyth Musicfest.
An experienced professional composer, my output includes Vocable (Vale of Glamorgan Festival 2010), Clarinet Quintet (Aberystwyth Musicfest 2011) and Ad Profunda (Bangor New Music Festival 2012).
From 2011 – 2013 I wrote a set of related solos for the ‘doubling’ woodwind instruments, Elemental Studies, which received their respective premieres in Cardiff, Ghent, London and Chicago.
