City: Cardiff    Instruments: Trumpet, Piano    Languages: English     Composer of contemporary & fun educational jazz music    


Darren Fellows is one of Britain’s latest generation of composers whose output reveals a broad spectrum from music theatre through orchestral, ensemble and solo pieces to film music.

I was born in North Yorkshire in 1975 where my music career developed rapidly, with works having been broadcast on radio and published by the time I was 17. My further education took me to Cardiff and London, where I trained at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama and studied privately at the Royal Academy of Music.

International publishers such as Schott & Co. Ltd, De Haske, Gerard Billaudot, Warwick Music, Cimarron Music Press, Friedrich Hofmeister Musikverlag, Editions Marc Reift and Kirklees Music have embraced my work, some of which are listed in exam board syllabi in the UK.

I enjoy, and am fortunate enough to work with internationally acclaimed artists and have written music for Guy Touvron, Tim Morrison, Dean Wright and the Female Trumpet Quartet Bella Tromba.

My music has been extensively performed in prestigious venues throughout the UK and featured in recitals by the principal trumpeter of the Welsh National Opera.

Internationally, my work has been performed in France, Japan, Finland and the USA. A selection of my work has also been featured in master classes in Italy.

Currently I play an active role in music in Wales, and have been commissioned by local authorities to compose for a wide variety of music education projects.

I have extensive experience and skills in running workshops for people with learning difficulties or physical disabilities, and am involved in training school teachers to run music workshops through Schott’s education programme.

I am  now based in Cardiff having established firm roots in the Welsh music community, whilst running a sought after teaching practice and gaining international recognition for my internationally renowned compositions.
