Jools Scott | Composer of classical, choral, contemporary, theatre and film music

Head over to the MUSIC page to listen to a selection of current work and collaborations.

There is so much to admire in Jools Scott’s music. It is totally accessible but it avoids saccharine sweetness, it is varied in style – reminiscent of Vaughan Williams and Britten at times – yet has a definite voice of its own. His instrumental writing is rich and full of colour, sometimes charming, sometimes menacing, whilst his choral writing is simply sublime, constantly making use of different textures and truly giving the choir something to sing about.

Jools’ musical education started as a choral scholar at St Paul’s Cathedral where he performed alongside the likes of Evelyn Glennie and Simon Rattle. He studied composition at the Royal Academy of Music.
