For many years I was a full-time member of the first violin section of the Ulster Orchestra. I now freelance with major symphony/opera/ballet orchestras throughout the UK.

I mainly teach more advanced students of any age (ABRSM Grade 7 and upwards). My aim is to encourage students to develop musical spontaneity through a mix of technical study and artistic imagination.

While I was in the Ulster Orchestra (and for several years afterwards) I led the Richmond String Quartet, the principal touring ensemble affiliated to the Music Association of Ireland's educational outreach programme.

More recently, I have coached chamber music at Reading University, including a string quartet that was the student ensemble in residence.

I am currently Head of Strings at Leighton Park School in Reading.
