Welcome to the website of Alison Carver – Composer of Music for Children
Alison studied Music at Manchester University followed by postgraduate studies at the National Centre for Orchestral Studies and the Royal Northern College of Music. She spent several years working as a percussionist and pianist in the worlds of classical, pop and theatre music, a musical director and a music specialist in primary education. During this time she began composing children’s music and was commissioned to write songs for BBC Television and Radio.
When her own children were born, Alison decided to design a range of musical products that would appeal to both children and their parents and so the ‘Let’s Go’ series was launched. Her best selling arrangements and original compositions for the very young are available as digital downloads from iTunes and Amazon.
Alison is published by Kevin Mayhew Ltd. Her works for children and young people include choral, instrumental, songs and musicals. With her distinctive compositions, Alison aims to encourage children to experience the joy of music and performance.
