Grant Horsley

Grant Horsley was trained at the Royal College of Music London, graduating in 1982. He then went on to gain his teaching qualification (Cert Ed Fento) at Greenwich University London.

Whilst a student at the RCM he occasionally rehearsed with the Royal Ballet School and later with London Festival Ballet - hence his love for Ballet and the works he composes for it.

Grant has an active career playing all types of music from classical to contemporary both as a soloist and as an accompanist.  He has worked as a session musician, an arranger, guest conductor and spent ten years as the Head of Music at Great Yarmouth College in Norfolk. Further afield, his career has involved him performing piano concertos, playing in jazz trios and quartets, playing in rock/function bands and working in various theatres in the role of musical director.

Grant plays extensively for dance schools around the country for both classical ballet and tap and has been asked by teachers to write short compositions to be used in festivals, competitions and young people’s projects. More recently his compositions have been featured in programs on BBC television and international networks.

As an independent music professional, he currently divides his time between performing, private tutoring, composing and arranging and playing for dance, and as a Member of the Chartered Institute of Educational Assessors, examines A-level music compositions and verifies educational music programs for schools and colleges.
