About the Composers

 

About our Composers

 

Keri DeggA keen educator, Keri has enjoyed teaching privately for a number of years and likes the challenge of motivating her students to reach their full potential via regular goals fuelled by exciting repertoire.

A multi-instrumentalist, Keri mainly writes for woodwind and piano (but also ensembles and other groupings). She was fortunate enough to have her first publication ('Songs for Claire' published by www.spartanpress.co.uk in both soprano and Alto saxophone editions, with CD) accepted for publication on her first attempt. However, always one to enjoy a fresh challenge she decided to set up her own production on newer compositions, and hence www.masquerade-music.co.uk was born.

She enjoys writing in a variety of styles; from deeply thoughtful passionate, through to downright daft! To date Keri is currently the main composer for the majority of the Masquerade music catalogue.
