Hi, I’m Al Start
As well as being a songwriter and performer, I also lead workshops and deliver training on a whole wealth of music subjects. I used to lecture at the University of Brighton and I've trained teachers at Sussex University too. I also give 1:1 instrument/singing/songwriting lessons and have co-written songs with many other musicians and writers both informally and with Chris Difford's (from Squeeze) songwriting residentials.
This is me conducting a youth choir at a Glyndebourne performance. I can work with children, young people and adults.
My experience as both a published writer and commissioned songwriter for third parties (other people) means I can write songs to brief and I love to collaborate.
I could help you take an idea and turn it into reality. Together we can create something fantastic!
I'd love to hear your idea - no matter how far you have got with it, and I'm really fun to work with too!
So you have nothing to lose by filling in the form below and telling me about what you're doing and if I can help, I will.
