Firm in the belief that creative freedom brings both the joy and responsibility of sharing that experience, Mike’s commitment to ‘pass on’ has led to international involvement in Music Education and Community Engagement. From running workshops for children with special needs to tutoring post-graduate composers, his enthusiasm for music is infectious. A professor at London’s prestigious Guildhall School of Music and Drama, Mike founded and now runs the School’s unique Principal Studies in Electronic Music, Film Music, Sonic Arts, Game Audio, Live Electronics and Popular Music Production.
