What kind of experience do you have?
I started performing at the age of 9, studying the trumpet and piano, and since then I have played with a wide variety of ensembles, including championship Brass Bands Redbridge Brass and the Rothwell Temperance Band, as well as the Forest Philharmonic Orchestra, and the Hertfordshire Chamber Orchestra.
I have also played live with Becontree Brass Band on BBC Radio 2 with Chris Evans, as official entertainment for the Royal Wedding.

I spent the last 5 years studying the trumpet with Phil Lawrence ARCM, PGRNCM, MFTCL, BMus, as well as having additional lessons with John Dickinson (ex head of brass at the Royal Northern), Gareth Small (Principal of the Halle) and Paul Cosh FGSM, LRAM, LGSM.

In 2013 I graduated with first class honours in composition from Leeds College of Music. I spent my first year studying performance as a major, before shifting my focus to writing music. I have studied composition with Dr David Fligg Ba, Mmus, PhD, FHEA, Dr Carl Vincent PhD, MMus, FNCM, FVCM, FRSA, LRAM, PGCE, FHEA and Peter Whitfield BMus, MMus, Dip Comp Accademia di Santa Cecilia, along with receiving consultations from external tutors including Gary Carpenter LRAM, Hon RAM, ARCM.

Whilst studying at Leeds, I collaborated with the students at the Northern Ballet to create a short dance, which was performed by the dancers in their end of year showcase in June. In my final year, I received the Michael Grady Memorial Prize for composition, and won the Leeds Community Symphony Orchestra composition competition with my piece ‘Joyce’.

I've developed a strong idiomatic understanding of other instrument groups by teaching myself the Piano, the Guitar, the Mandolin and the Violin, which has developed my compositional skills.
