Joseph’s fascination with the piano began at an early age when, as a hyperactive child with a short attention span, his parents would sit him at the piano as a means of entertaining him. Since then, Joseph Cummings has graduated from the Royal Welsh College of Music and has recently finished a fellowship at the Royal Academy of Music. Joseph works mostly with music for the stage as well as using music as an educational tool. He is currently working for the Royal Shakespeare Company as musical director and mentor to schools across the UK producing versions of Matilda. In 2016 Joseph cofounded Voices Across Time, Joseph also works with the Wigmore Hall as repetiteur for community events as well as their dementia friendly choir ‘Singing with Friends’. Joseph is repetiteur to the International Adult Autistic Choir and arranges many of their bespoke pieces which allow the individual talents of the choir members to be showcased. He has also recently worked on projects with leading arts organisations such as the Oxford Lieder Festival, Dartington Musical Festival, Royal Opera House, Leeds Lieder Festival and the National Theatre.
