West End, London

MUSICAL DIRECTOR


Presently the MD at Matilda The Musical (West End), Laurie is a music director for theatrical productions and workshops in London and around the UK.  And possibly the tallest.

He also conducting the orchestral sessions for the score of the 2014 movie Pride.

AUDITION PIANIST


 AUDITION PIANISTS ARE NOT ALL THE SAME.

With nearly 20 years of professional audition piano experience, Laurie has played for scores of production casting panels and, as musical director, worked with other top-class pianists (and seen oh-so-many examples of how NOT to accompany singers.)

SINGING & REPERTOIRE COACH


LAURIE AIN'T NO TECHNICAL SINGING TEACHER.

And will never pretend to be.  He's witnessed some of the best and, sadly, seen others who really don't cut it.  Laurie's skill set, however, does lie in preparing singers in performance and audition technique.  He passes on his knowledge and experience not only in London's top theatre academies but also guides many of the country's most well-respected actors through their auditions and rehearsals.

VOCAL ARRANGER


From 3-part SSA pop arrangements for BBC's Eurovision: Your Country Needs You, and countless barbershop & close-harmony charts, to (often uncredited) theatrical vocal arrangements, Laurie's writing always serves not just the music and its listeners but also has one eye on every internal line.  (There's never an occasion when an alto must sit on repeated notes for a chorus and a half.)
