As composer Tim’s music ranges from small beginner pieces for woodwind ensembles to large scale choral and orchestral works, it is distributed worldwide by the Highlands based music hub Spartan Press;

By far the largest part of his output is choral music and he has a special interest in music for the smaller choir creating a hugely successful Accessible choral library imprint for these works, also including other composers in the series.
