“‘Dylan has acquitted himself well as a liturgical organist and choral director. He has a sure instinct for harmony, is an able accompanist and demonstrates strong administrative and organisational skills.”

“Dylan is a friendly, hardworking and talented musician. He frequently shares his work online to inspire the next generation of musicians.”

Imogen Daisy Russell

(Soprano with Ex Cathedra, studying at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire)

“Dylan was an absolute pleasure to work with. He is extremely professional and hardworking, which meant that rehearsals ran smoothly, and calmly. Dylan’s rehearsal process was also very enjoyable, and it was clear to see that attention to detail was important to him. I hope to work with him again in the future, and really look forward to seeing the amazing future he has ahead!”

Alison Ross

(Mezzo-Soprano studying at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire)

“Dylan is a fantastic musician and conductor. Not only that, he is a caring and understanding person, which makes working with him very pleasant and helps bring out the best in the musicians. He works extremely hard and is a versatile musical director. I would highly recommend Dylan as both an accompanist and also a conductor.”

Annie Routley

(Conductor and Orchestrator)

“Dylan was asked to conduct at a recording session at the Royal Conservatoire, Birmingham. The People’s Orchestra were recording an Aston Villa fans anthem chant, which I had orchestrated for them. I was very impressed by Dylan’s professionalism and gracious manner with everyone – always clear in his conducting, always affirming the players and encouraging the best from us. It was a long evening, but Dylan remained positive and cheerful throughout. He had carefully prepared beforehand and knew the score well. I would certainly recommend Dylan if you are looking for a young, enthusiastic and professional musician to direct an ensemble.”
