Simon Proctor

Composer, pianist, teacher, arranger, orchestrator

Simon's aim is always to produce music which is melodious, harmonious and appealing. All his scores are produced quickly and always finished on time if a date has been requested.

He welcomes commissions for any instrument or combination of instuments, especially the more unusual or unconventional. Each piece is very carefully researched to ensure it suits the instruments and players concerned.
