Welcome

"The act of being creative disengages one with their physical surroundings. It is both liberating and impractical; it is the space a composer craves."

– Bethan Morgan-Williams

About

Bethan Morgan-Williams is a Welsh composer based in Montgomeryshire. She composes instrumental, vocal and electronic music for people of all ages and abilities, finding motivation through the simple urge to provide performers with new and exciting music. Described as “marvellously oblique and obscure” [5against4] while being “rooted in something ancient and folky” [The Telegraph], Bethan’s music is fluid and expressive. 

Sheet music is available to purchase though the online shop as hard copies or as downloadable PDFs. Composing, arranging, type-setting and teaching enquiries are all welcome, please use the contact form to get in touch.
