I am a guitarist, keyboardist, composer and music producer. I have played guitar and keyboards on touring theatre shows such as Nativity! The Musical and The Simon and Garfunkel Story. I have also written and produced original music for over 10 years. I want to help with your project.
I can record electric guitar, bass, keyboards, and program drums, synthesizers and orchestral instruments. I can help you with anything from arranging your song, recording your instruments, editing your tracks, mixing, or writing and producing original music for your film/theatre show/audiobook etc.
I graduated in Music from The University of Birmingham with first class honours, staying to complete an MA in Electroacoustic Composition, achieving distinction. While at university, I musically directed and played for shows including Into the Woods, Jesus Christ Superstar, and Rent.
Since then, I have been mainly working in theatre, as Assistant Musical Director/Guitar/Keys for Nativity! The Musical (UK Tour) and Guitar/Keys for The Simon and Garfunkel Story (UK/International Tour.) I have arranged songs (scores and tracks), produced for solo artists, and played piano with Improv Theatre groups including Murder, She Didn't Write, Improvabunga! and Notflix.
I read sheet music and I have a sound grasp of theory. I am familiar with many styles, having sung in choirs, played percussion in orchestras, and played guitar, bass and keys in rock bands, big bands and pit bands.
Let's make some music together.

2 ReviewsEndorse Will Tuckwell
I have collaborated with Will countless times in the last 7 years. He has taken on a variety of roles for me, including guitar, bass, keyboards, composition, production, arrangement/orchestration, mixing & accompanying improvisation. I cannot speak highly enough of Will as a musician. In all of these roles he delivers exceptional work. He listens exceptionally, collaborates very well and is comfortable with any amount of creative freedom: give him precise instructions or a rough outline and his quality of work will be equally excellent. If I need music, I'd always look to Will first.
Will's orchestrations for Reality Bites have completely enhanced the production - not only is he an impeccable guitar/keys player, he is highly professional, works in a collaborative nature and produces quality tracks every time.
