services - songwriting


Our songwriting team is headed up by our founders Luke and James. Music is where it all began for the Vyner brothers and although heady dreams of rock stardom have long subsided, you can’t hold these two back from penning a song.

James is a bassist and producer by trade, and Luke a songwriter. Having played in bands for years, writing music together started in the attic of the Vyner family house many many years ago. Back then they sounded pretty terrible, fast forward 25 years and both have honed their skills and confidently write and produce sophisticated songs for the ELT market.

Always collaborating, we are very lucky to have Dr Thomas Parkinson as our Musical Director - a Professor of Musicology, multi-instrumentalist and all round musical genius.

In addition to Tom we collaborate with a whole host of brilliant musicians, singers and handpicked songwriters, to make sure we get the right sound, the right voice and the right song.

Creative Listening have written and produced ELT music for Macmillan Education, The British Council, National Geographic Learning and Cambridge University Press.
