Tutor: Stephanie Amies
Stephanie is performer, composer, lyricist, artist, choir leader and vocal coach. She began her life as a musician at the age of seven and began writing music in her early teens. However, it was whilst she was completing her degree in BA English and Music at the University of Southampton where her love for musicals really flourished.
Stephanie wrote her first musical Lillia for her final dissertation and the University society, Showstoppers, chose to take it to the Fringe in 2011. From the moment the music and words came to life on stage she knew that writing musicals would be a life-long love. It wasn't until Lillia was nominated for 'Best New Musical' and 'Best Music' in the MTM Awards at the Fringe that she decided to pursue it as a career. She has now written six musicals (including the work with Amies & Clements) and is currently working on two new pieces.
Sessions: Wednesday 15 July – 12 August, 6pm – 7pm
Tickets: £15 for five sessions
