My name is Rebecca Peacock and I am a composer and teacher living in Leicester, UK. I have been playing the Piano (almost) my whole life! As a teenager I started playing Saxophone (I have always loved Jazz music!) I have written stories and lyrics for as long as I can remember and as I learnt more music and theory I started to compose/arrange for my friends and put all those lyrics to music!
I was fortunate to study Music at the University of Liverpool. Partly because of the amazing musical history the city has, and partly because I am a lifelong fan of the Liverpool F.C. football team! While I studied in Liverpool I composed mainly instrumental music for Classical style ensembles.
I am a huge fan of theatre, particularly musicals – Chicago and Kiss Me Kate are my absolute favourites! After watching a live production of Chicago, I realised I wanted to write my own musicals! A couple of years ago I went back to University to study writing for Musical Theatre at Goldsmiths, University of London. Since then I have written a few short musicals for young children to perform. And I am currently re-writing my first musical for an adult cast – called One More Time.
When I’m not composing, I’m often busy teaching at the Performing Arts School I founded in Leicester! Or, I can be found watching (and re-watching) sitcoms on Netflix, usually Brooklyn Nine-Nine or Community!

Behind the Name
The name “Nocturne Notes” combines my love of Musical Theatre (the show: A Little Night Music by Sondheim) and my training in Classical Music (Eine kleine Nachtmusik by Mozart, as well as Chopin’s Nocturnes!) I also adored Astronomy when I was younger, so the name combines lots of my passions into one!
