My musical interests are varied; I have conducted my own works in venues such as the Royal Albert Hall and Birmingham Symphony Hall, am an alumnus of the National Youth Orchestra, and have written music for several plays and films. I play bass in several bands, and have headlined the O2 Academy Oxford as well as played in a jazz-hip hop collective for at the Edinburgh Fringe festival and other soul/funk bands at Oxford.
I'm personable, patient and enthusiastic about teaching people the subject I love. I have extensive practical experience as a composer, sound designer and performer, which requires me working with people almost every day. I also hold an LTCL diploma with distinction in bassoon performance.
