During my time at Trinity Laban I had coaching from some of the very best trumpet players in the world and was under the guidance of Mike Lovatt who is renowned for helping resolve problems that trumpet players may suffer. It was under his guidance that I was able to both understand and apply the very best approaches to teaching, from starting to play, to more advanced applications of technique. In addition to having an extensive understanding of the many elements of trumpet technique.
When beginning I prefer to focus on breathing exercises to encourage the pupils to blow correctly as this is the most important aspect of playing the trumpet. Any tension that is present in the body will only hamper the production and tone.
I also have a keen interest in musicality and encourage the students to play music in the style it was written. I have performed in a hugely diverse number of settings (see attached CV) from brass bands to big bands. I have performed solo works with orchestras and also in brass and jazz quintets.
