Ladies in Black- Musical Director

Raised in Busselton, Western Australia, Tim Cunniffe took his first paid gig at age 15 in a local piano bar, before moving to Perth to complete a degree in classical piano at WAAPA, and later studying conducting with Dobbs Franks.

He forged his career in Western Australia, where he is best known as Music Director of more than 30 stage shows, co-creator of more than 80 cabaret shows presented around the world, lecturer in Music Theatre at WAAPA, conductor of the Churchlands Choral Society, and for his long association with His Majesty’s Theatre.

Since relocating to Sydney in 2012, he has continued his classical career, enjoying engagements with the Sydney Philharmonia Choirs, the Sydney Children’s Choir and Gondwana Voices. His recent Music Theatre work includes serving as Assistant Conductor on national tours of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (JAP), The King and I (OA/GFO), Dirty Dancing (GFO), We Will Rock You (GFO), and Jersey Boys (New Theatricals).


I don’t profess to have music as my big wheel and there are a number of other things as important to me apart from music. Theatre and mime, for instance.
