Biography

I have over 20 years of experience playing musical instruments, 15 of which with the sax as my main instrument.

I began my classical training back in sunny Somerset, under the guise of my teacher - Beverly Trimmings. With her I secured my Grade 8 Distinction alongside my A-Levels, with an A in music as well as Grade 5 Piano and Music Theory.

During my time at Newcastle University, I have studied with Mecedes Phillips and Faye MacCalman (of Archipelago). Here I turned my focus to Jazz and Improvisation and took the opportunity to take my training to the next level, living and studying in Montreal for a year.

I currently play in a variety of ensembles around the Newcastle Upon-Tyne area, ranging from Jazz, Funk, Pop, Neo-classical and even a Folk group. I have a very open mind when it comes to how the sax can be used within music and am dedicated to pushing myself further as a musician.

While my early Classical training certainly gave me a strong foundation for music making, I have since discovered great value in learning music by ear and developing a strong aural awareness. With my students it is important to me to teach a balance of both approaches right from the offset, so that they can be prepared for all situations.

Ultimately, I want to impart any wisdom and experience I've gained over the years onto enthusiastic students who want to find their voice on the sax, so that I can help them to reach and exceed their musical aspirations!
