Welcome to the Music Room.

Hi 👋 I’m Gareth, a media composer and audio producer based in Shepperton, UK. You can read all about me here if you like, but that’s enough about me. The Music Room community is all about you!

I started the Music Room podcast back in 2022. It’s a show about the formative years of professional composers, songwriters and musicians, and now has a community of ‘music roomers’ who help each other, collaborate and generally have each others’ backs. Isn’t that what life’s all about?

I created the Music Room to help composers, songwriters and musicians (just like me) who are writing and recording for fun or navigating their way through the music industry. I’m doing as much as I can to help by creating resources and growing the Music Room community. As much as some of it can run on fresh air, it all takes time and effort. If you’d like to support my efforts, you can by subscribing.

So take a look around. There’s a free-to-access tier, including the Music Room podcast and roundup newsletter, as well as a paid tier with perks.

Subscribe to get full access to the everything, including publication archives.
