I have over 30 years experience as a teacher and have one of the most established teaching studios in the country. I am pleased to say I have a nationwide reputation for the quality of my teaching of both children and adults. As I work for a number of leading independent schools I regularly receive up to date training on the protection of children.

From 1987 to date I have worked as a freelance professional trumpeter. I have worked with ensembles as diverse as the Welsh Jazz Orchestra, The Melochrino Orchestra, The Renaissance Orchestra, The Welsh Sinfonia, The Welsh Chamber Orchestra, The Charles Barber Band, and for 10 years was the Lead Trumpeter at the New Theatre, Cardiff for the Christmas seasons.

I have held a number of teaching positions including from 1992 to 2003 the Brass Instrumental Tutor at Christ College, Brecon, from 1994 to 2006 the Brass Instrumental Tutor at Malvern Girls' College, from 2006 to 2015 the Brass Instrumental Tutor at Malvern St James, and from 1996 to 2017 was a tutor at the Junior Conservatoire of the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama. I am currently employed as the Brass Instrumental Tutor at Beaudesert Park School, Minchinhampton (since September 2002) and Wycliffe College (since 2008). I also have over 40 private pupils. I am a full member of the Incorporated Society of Musicians and am listed on their Register of Professional Private Music Teachers.

From 2008 to 2018 I was on the panel of tutors for the National Children's Orchestras Of Great Britain.

To date my pupils have become members of the National Youth Orchestra of Wales, the National Youth Brass Band of Great Britain, the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain, the National Children's Orchestra of Great Britain, the National Children's Wind Sinfonia of Great Britain, the National Youth Brass Band of Wales, the National Youth Symphonic Brass Ensemble of Wales as well as a number of local groups including the Cory Band and the Tredegar Band. A number of my pupils have also entered the music profession as both teachers and performers. My pupils have also won many competitions including the Texaco Young Musician of Wales and the brass final of the 2004 BBC Young Musician of the Year.
