If youÂ’d have told me when I was 7 years old that just 1 year later I would have a main part in the town production followed by many years of Music and Drama training, I would have dismissed it.

I aim to inspire people, like I was once, to feel empowered and Â‘get out there and live your dream!Â’ I adopt the very same ethos on a daily basis. I aim to capture a snapshot of each individual's story, with an aim to nurture and develop their (hidden) talent to be the very best., , I take pride in sharing my passion of Music with others and strive to inspire them to improve their own confidence, technique and sound quality.
