I've been playing percussion since the age of 11, starting on drum kit and progressing into tuned and orchestral percussion. I played for various city and county level ensembles throughout my education in Southampton and Hampshire, including orchestras, wind bands, percussion ensembles and brass bands.
Whilst studying in Manchester, as well as participating in and managing a range of university ensembles, I played with the Brighouse and Rastrick Band. I also gained valuable teaching experience in teaching whilst working as a tutor for the Rochdale Youth Orchestra.
I currently play percussion and drum kit for Michlemersh Silver Band, Hampshire. I perform in amateur musicals as part of the pit orchestra, and regularly play for a large number of orchestras across the south coast of England.
I teach drum kit, percussion, and piano privately.
