Adam Saunders is a choir leader, pianist, composer and educator based in London, UK.
Fascinated by education and the learning process, he works with many of the UK’s leading music organisations including the National Youth Jazz Orchestra, Aldeburgh Young Musicians and the Southbank Centre. He recently returned to his former conservatoire, Trinity Laban, to mentor undergraduate students as part of the CoLab Festival.
In 2015 he worked alongside the renowned Pete Churchill composing the music for a massed choral project entitled ‘Backstories’ culminating in a performance at the Royal Albert Hall with Big Band, Strings and 1200 primary school children. He is currently composing the music for a brand new musical, ‘GRACE’, to be performed at the The New Wimbledon Theatre this July.
After delivering a workshop and performance at the Music Learning Revolution 2015, he is developing a brand new set of resources for Musical Futures UK and Australia to enable ensemble leaders to teach repertoire by ear without the need for any notation.
An active performer, he has played at some of the UK's most prestigious venues including the Royal Festival Hall, Cadogan Hall and Ronnie Scott's. He can also be heard singing with the London Vocal Project on the late Kenny Wheeler’s album entitled ‘Mirrors’.
