Timothy Peters BMus (Hons) is a tenor, choral conductor, composer, music producer and DJ. In each of these roles, his main goal is to keep music accessible, exciting and original. In January 2022 he was appointed as a Fellow of the National Youth Choirs of Great Britain where he will continue to develop his skills as a singer, music leader and educator.
As a Tenor, Timothy sings regularly as the Tenor 1 lay clerk at Guildford Cathedral. As a soloist, he has been featured on BBC Radio 4 and regularly performs for choirs and orchestras around England including the Exon Singers, Hallam Choral Society and Hallam Sinfonia, Bakewell Choral Society and South Yorkshire Symphony Orchestra, the Chester Festival Chorus and Ensemble Deva, Kantos Chamber Choir and the Northern Ballet Sinfonia Orchestra in addition to numerous performances as a recitalist.
Through his conducting, Timothy's only goal is to transform music into the gravity that pulls a community together. Timothy is the musical director of Surrey's LGBTQIA+ Choir, Rainbow Choir. He is also the artistic director of Seeds for Development's project "Northern Uganda SINGS!". He leads singing workshops as a way to bring disparate farming communities together, using the opportunity to discuss health and education matters.
Timothy uses his broad range of musical experiences to approach music education from as many different angles as he finds accessible to his audience. He teaches composition, music production and DJ'ing at City of London Freemen's School. All of his composition students have attained full marks in this component of their GCSEs and A-Levels. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Timothy created dozens of hours of educational resources for local schools who have little to no music education. He also complied and produced virtual performances of them once a term.
Choral music and music for young people is where Timothy's primary compositional output lies. His largest choral work, commissioned by Classical Sheffield, is called The Golden Hour which premiered in March 2019 at Sheffield Cathedral. Timothy has also co-written a children's rock opera with Nicholas Alexander called 'Bill Frog to the Rescue' which was premiered in November 2018 at Sheffield Cathedral, featuring 8-piece rock band and 200+ children.
Timmy Dillow is the pen name Timothy uses to release music and work as a music producer and DJ.
