I am an experienced professional bass trombonist with some 50 years experience as a player. I taught as an instrumental teachers for a music service in South East England for 26 years before taking early retirement to return to my native Somerset. During my time with the music service I also tutored youth orchestras, bands and ensembles from beginner to county standard, including over 10 years tutoring the brass with the county youth orchestra. I also formed and conducted the county youth brass ensemble. A number of pupils of mine went on to music conservatoire and to membership of the National Youth Orchestra. I also spent a period of time as one of two Child Protection Officers for the music service.

My approach to teaching is very simple. I believe that music is there to be enjoyed. It is also a discipline that can be beneficial to pupils in many different walks of life.
I am very keen that my pupils enjoy their tuition, as then they will be prepared to put in the practice that is necessary. I believe that exams are important as an independent measure of progress, and will enter pupils for exams if we all agree it is of benefit to the pupil.
