My career in music education has spanned twenty three years. I originally trained as a percussionist and embarked on a freelance career as a performer and music leader following graduation in 1989. My ‘Concerto for Percussion & Embroidery Machine’ remains one of my most infamous works and I will always look back fondly on my time as a Redcoat at Barry Island!

My previous posts include Founding Director, Plymouth Music Zone; Director of Arts, Dartington; Project Manager, Wiltshire Music Connect; Project Development Manager, Devon School for Social Entrepreneurs; Orchestral Development Animateur, Bournemouth Orchestras; Founding Director, Live Music Now! (South West).
