I have been learning and studying drums since the age of 9 and have been practicing intensely from then.
I passed my first grade 8 at the age of 13 and my second at 14, also winning the young Welsh musician award at 14 as well.
I am confident at all genres of music, having played in many rock bands across the UK and I am a regular drummer in a soul band.
However my strongest area is Jazz/Funk.
I have been studying jazz since the age of 12 and made my way on to the National Youth Jazz Wales course at the age of 13 where I played along side some truly inspiring musicians, and have had a regular place on this course up until the age of 18 when I went to university.
Every year I took part in the National Festival Music for Youth and progressed twice to the final stages of the competition where I performed in the Royal Albert Hall.
I have further expanded my knowledge of Jazz as I made my way on to the Jazz course at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama and am currently being taught by some of the best teachers in both Wales and England, teachers such as James Maddren, Elliot Bennett, Joshua Blackmore and Martin Franz.
I have done lots of teaching over the years, first of all starting out with private lessons at my house. Now I work part time at Greater Gwent Music Support Service and I am full time at DS music in Monmouth. All of this has given me great experience in working with a variety of standards and ages, ranging from children to adults and from beginner to advanced.
