Will has a unique background as a professional playing musician, working in both rock/pop and in classical music (opera, ballet and symphony orchestras) for the last twenty years. His professional experience gives him an extraordinarily huge knowledge base of styles and genres, orchestrations, arrangements and possibilities - from Elvis Costello to Dmitri Shostakovich.

Special and Technical Skills
Will is adept at both Logic and Cubase. With a sample library over 500Gb, he can score a soundtrack without the need to hire live musicians if needs and budget require.
Of course the best results are achieved either by mixing a few live musicians with sequenced MIDI or by live musicians alone. Will is able to quickly render parts for musicians from MIDI (copying) using Sibelius. He can then record, produce & engineer them in his studio or at a third party venue for larger ensembles.
