I have been playing trumpet for 15 years. In that time I have enjoyed playing in brass bands, marching bands, concert bands, big bands, funk bands, and pop bands - among others. I have performed at the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland, played with Steve Waterman and the Wiltshire Youth Jazz Orchestra, and even practised with the Royal Marines. I also have two years' experience as musical director of Exeter University Concert Band.

I have recently completed my Master's degree at the University of Exeter and I have spent three years playing with the Exeter University Jazz Orchestra, in which I led trumpet sectional rehearsals. I have performed with the orchestra's funk and small bands at local venues like the Old Firehouse and at many black tie functions in hotels across the south west. Furthermore, I have over the past five years been hired to play professionally as part of the University's graduation ceremonial band, and also in pit bands for musical productions at the Barnfield Theatre in Exeter. My pit band experience extends to productions at the Northcott theatre as well.

I have studied under professional musicians and trumpeters Mike Daniels and Brian Moore. I am very happy to teach complete beginners, so don't worry if you have absolutely zero musical experience. Additionally, I may be able to lend students a spare trumpet (subject to availability).

My trumpet playing is one of my greatest passions and, I find, one of the most satisfying ways to express myself. I love to share this experience with others, and always aim for an open dialogue with my students about their aims and ambitions. I look forward to hearing from you!
