Composes for solo piano, choir, and orchestra
Lives in Harlow, Essex
Kerry Barnes lives and works in Harlow, Essex. She was a piano teacher for many years, and turned to composition much later on in life. At age 18 she started off her own teaching practise even though she wasn't qualified, but thought to herself "how am I supposed to gain a teaching diploma with no experience of teaching?" At age 22 Kerry finally gained her diploma at the London College Of Music.
Composition came very naturally to her, and to date she has a prolific body of works, mainly in the neo-classical and new-age genres. Her music can be heard on Spotify, Soundcloud, New Age Music Planet, One World Music Radio, Bandcamp and Pandora in USA. She is also a Classical Broadcaster and Music Reviewer for international artists.
Kerry is an exam board composer for Victoria College London, ICMA and Con Brio. She also writes choral music, and is Composer in Residence for CL. Voices in her hometown of Harlow. Her ambition is to have her one orchestral work performed by a symphony orchestra.
