He is currently studying for his Masters degree in Performance as a scholar at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, having completed an Honours degree in Music from Goldsmiths, University of London in 2016.

He has also taught at Sheffield Music Academy for two years, teaching individual piano and cello lessons as well as performance classes, chamber music, aural and theory training. He is committed to building well-rounded, versatile and confident music-makers, and aims to engender a life-long affinity and love for music in all his students.

He has extensive experience as a performer of solo, chamber and orchestral repertoire; highlights include playing at the Royal Albert Hall with the National Youth Orchestra, Buckingham Palace with the Goldsmiths Quartet, and performing the Shostakovich Concerto no. 1 with the Goldsmiths Sinfonia.
