Maria Haïk Escudero is a composer and lyricist based in London and is resident composer at Theatre6. She completed the MA at Goldsmith in Musical Theatre (composition) and is currently developing two musicals. She is happy to work with schools/colleges to help students with any aspects of the compositions, whether it’s lyric-writing or putting ideas into a score. Maria can do group work or one to one if just one or two students are interested in entering.

Maria’s base rate is £31 per hour, but she may charge for travel time plus expenses, so please get in touch with Maria direct on to discuss.

The kinds of things Maria can help with are:

  • telling the story/getting the message across in the song • lyric structure/rhyme • setting lyrics to melody • Cuban rhythm and music • individual character voice • scoring for piano and vocals • idea to song; chord sequence to score • providing feedback or critique
