Notes:

I am a freelance musician who studied at the national specialist music school in Aberdeen and am now playing at 1st Diploma level.

At the age of 15 years old, I recorded my first CD ‘Moving Forward’ at Castlesound Studios. The CD was my first business venture and was released in April 2009 and is being sold in many leading music stores. Since then I have recorded on three broadcasts for BBC Radio Scotland including the Live Take the Floor Broadcast for Celtic Connections in February 2014. This recording resulted in the band being nominated at the Scots Trad Music Awards for Scottish Dance Band of the Year. I am also a comfortable solo performer as demonstrated by winning the All Scotland Accordion Championship in 2010.

As a freelance musician this has given me the opportunity to network around the globe, visiting places such as Milan at the European Accordion Festival, Paris and even as far as Uganda.

I have also represented the World Burns Federation to attend and perform at the official launch of the Royal Mint Burns Coin and the Royal Mail Burns Stamp Collection in London. During his visit I was invited to No. 10 Downing Street where he met The Prime Minister at the time, Gordon Brown and The Chancellor, Alistair Darling. The visit coincided with the inauguration of President Barrack Obama.

Performing aside, I also now enjoy teaching a wide variety of pupils. Having taught at SC&T, the University of Aberdeen and private pupils I am now looking forward to expanding my teaching to new pupils.
