Mark Jefferson BA(Hons.) MMus QTS was brought up in Dudley, West Midlands and studied piano with Molly Childs. He then went on to read music at the Universities of Surrey and East Anglia. Whilst in London, he studied piano with Peter Croser and organ with Richard Stangroom.

It was his work with the latter that led to a deep and abiding interest in Choral Conducting and the completion of a Master of Music Degree in Choral and Orchestral Conducting with Professor Peter Aston.

As an accompanist, he was an organ scholar at three London colleges. He has worked with teachers at both the Royal Academy and the Royal College of Music. He has performed at many well-known venues in the UK and across Europe both as a conductor of choirs and orchestras and as an instrumentalist. He has worked and studied with conductors such as Owain Arwel Hughes, Jeremy Jackman and Kuno Areng.

Until his recent move to the South, in between those times when he wasn’t being a Headteacher or teaching his GCSE and A Level students or tutoring budding music theatre performers, Mark was – for 22 years – conductor of the St. Edmundsbury Male Voice Choir, one of the largest male voice choirs in the country undertaking concerts throughout the UK and Europe.  

As a musical director, Mark has worked as a Lecturer in Music Theatre and Voice at the Academy of Live and Recorded Arts, Clapham and has many years of experience musically directing both professional and amateur productions in a wide range of musical theatre repertoire, having musically directed 52 different shows.
