Gareth Green achieved his first musical diplomas at the age of fifteen. Three years later he collected the Dixon and Turpin prizes for FRCO and was already engaged as a recitalist around Europe. Gareth held Organ Scholarships at St. Paul’s Cathedral, London; Worcester College, Oxford University; Canterbury Cathedral. In 1983 he became Assistant Organist at Wakefield Cathedral. In 1985, he was appointed Director of Music at Queen Elizabeth Grammar School, Wakefield, leaving in 1990 to pursue his free-lance interests as an organ recitalist, choral conductor, accompanist, adjudicator, composer/arranger and Associated Board examiner. Gareth is also now an Associated Board moderator, trainer and an international co-ordinator. He has worked for BBC Religious Broadcasting as a musical director for `Daily Service` and as an organist & pianist on `Songs of Praise`, `Sunday Half Hour`, BBC Chorister of the Year finals etc. Gareth has released various recordings, both as a soloist and choral accompanist, and his musical endeavours have taken him as far a field as America, Bermuda, Hong Kong and Singapore. He offers consultation lessons at his home in South Yorkshire and travels widely in his various musical pursuits.

Alex Shore - Technical Director

Alex Shore is a music professional specialising in electronic music production and sound design. Originating from the UK, this talented individual stepped into music at a young age, initially trained as a classical pianist. However through the experimentation of his own ideas he found a passion for making his own music, earning him a Listeners Choice award by Sony BMG and Apple Inc in 2005 for his remix and production work. This creativity quickly fuelled a desire to pursue a career in production, leading him to develop his skills. Alex went on to obtain a first class honours degree in music technology, enhancing his sound design and production technique even further. A keen music technologist, Alex’s love of synthesis sees him crafting unique and varied new sounds for use within his productions. His music reflects the broad range of his interests, from electronic, to film and classical, with elements of each influencing his work. His unique uplifting, euphoric sound has attracted support from huge artists such as Aly & Fila and Judge Jules, earning him an ever-growing fanbase around the world. Along with this, Alex works as a private tutor in piano, music theory and music production.
