Born in Ripon, North Yorkshire, I have been playing upper brass instruments for over 20 years.

I began playing the Cornet/Flugel at the age of 8 for my local brass band where I grew and developed as a player to become the principal cornet player of that first section band, which I held of 5 years.
I picked up the Trumpet in secondary school in order to join the Orchestra and Jazz Band, which allowed me to broaden my understanding of different styles of music.
This experience put me in a good position before joining the Royal Marine Band Service in 2005 as a Cornet and Viola player.

As a professional musician I have had 11 years experience in many genres of brass playing including orchestral, wind band, marching band, big band, brass quintet and brass band.

Current pupils range from aged 18 - 33. I don't believe it's ever too late to learn a musical instrument and I'm passionate about making sure students enjoy what they do.
