About Timothy

Timothy received his first musical training from the well-known choral arranger Michael Neaum, then moved on to study under Anthea Cator at Clarendon College, Nottingham, and received a BA(Hons) in Contemporary Music from Bretton Hall University College. Whilst in the final year of his degree, he took up a position as Vocal Coach to Bretton Hall’s prestigious acting course, training several students who have gone on to West End and film roles. In 1999 he became a rehearsal pianist for Sing Live Ltd, as well as running his own business writing orchestrations and arrangements.

In 2005, Timothy began working as a freelance musical director, vocal coach and arranger. He took over as the Musical Director of choirs in Nottingham and Sheffield, worked for Vocaltutor as a voice coach, and gave masterclasses in Singing for Health at several seminars across the UK. In 2008 he became Head of Music for Sing Live Ltd, with responsibility for writing all arrangements and orchestrations used across the company, and for overseeing the musical quality of each of their eleven UK choirs.

In June 2010, Timothy returned to freelancing, in addition to setting up his own network of contemporary community choirs, BeVox. In 2014 he joined The Workplace Choir Company as their North of England Musical Director, which has led to a highly successful project with Baker Tilly accountants. In 2015 he collaborated with senior management at LaFarge Tarmac to deliver motivational training in unique ways. He is currently in great demand as a workshop leader, vocal coach, consultant and arranger.
