Tim specialises in writing vocal music for developing singers. He started out with a view to writing classical songs on classical texts which helped young singers with sometimes limited range, develop a good technique while, at the same time, having some age-appropriate technical aspect to work on. They also give students the chance to engage with some wonderful texts, several of which feature in the GCSE syllabus.

In addition Tim has written and arranged numerous duets and ensembles to compliment the ranges and abilities of young singers.
