Paul Mealor, internationally acclaimed composer - on Aaron's choral music:

"Aaron King is a talented and original composer of music for choir. His music is lyrical, well crafted and full of colour. Choirs everywhere need to sing this music."

Riccardo Soriano, student BAFTA shortlisted film director

"Working with Aaron was a real pleasure. His deep passion and professional approach have taken the project to a higher level. I am sure that he will greatly succeed in his career thanks to his great talent and artistic sensibilty."

James Fellows (Musical director, Luceat Choir)

 

Aaron’s music fits the choir’s voice like a perfect glove. His ability to craft melody is unique among modern composers, and lends a beautiful spirituality to any service. We can’t wait to perform more works by this exceptional musician

Cherwell (student newspaper), on new musical 'Nice Guy'

"By far the stand out element, however, is Aaron King’s score, accompanied by Sam Norman’s lyrics...The score is truly a gift that keeps on giving – from Isla’s unofficial theme of ‘Everything’s Fine’ reprised to horrifying effect, to the duets and three-part harmonies which adorn the piece with perfect balance."

OxStu (student newspaper), on new musical 'Cyrano de Bergerac' 

"...the audience is treated to a delightful original score composed by King which is bursting with a sense of power and antiquated splendour, all the while betraying a slightly sombre, melancholic tone. There are a multitude of original songs... including a variety of stunning ballads..."

Sam Norman, playwright and author.

 

"In the time I’ve known and collaborated with him as a lyricist, Aaron has proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that he is an outstandingly talented and versatile composer; together we have written everything from tangos to musical anthems to folk tunes, arranged for lone pianos, jazz bands and orchestras. Besides being frighteningly quick and original (he often composes entire songs in his head, notating them later) he is a pleasure to work with: accommodating, polite, cheerful and modest. I have no doubt that he will do great things."

Joseph Dobos, Conductor, Wayne State University Concert Band

"This is the kind of music that wind bands ought to be playing... Thank you for writing such beautiful music."
