I'm a musician and teacher working as Director of Music for the Inspiration Trust, where I support the musical development of the 13 schools within that Multi-Academy Trust.
I'm well established Organist, Conductor and Teacher, based in East Norfolk. My experience is varied and includes teaching and examining undergraduate courses (conducting, aural training, analysis, counterpoint), alongside engagements as a performer and conductor. I lead workshops and conduct church choirs, choral societies and orchestras. As a Musical Director, I've worked in the USA, France and Kenya.
I have a special interest in helping young people develop their musicianship through ensemble playing and founded The Orchestrate! Project in 2014.
As an organist and pianist, I work as an accompanist and recitalist. Orchestrally, I'm an experienced bassoonist. I sing either Countertenor/Alto or Tenor, and have been a Deputy Alto Lay Clerk in the Norwich Cathedral Choir since 2013, appearing on two of their CD recordings and having toured with the choir to Westminster Abbey (2013) and Sweden (2014). I'm an examiner for the Royal School of Church Music.
I've conducted many major works, and led a long list of musicals in the theatre.
I hold a Master of Music degree in Conducting, a BA(Hons) degree in Music and the Licenciate of Trinity College London diploma as a pianist.
