Personal Description:

I was born into a musical family and began playing the trumpet at the age 6. Having achieved Grade 8 by the age of 14, I went on to study in London at the Royal College of Music Junior Department for two years and then Trinity College of Music for a further three years. I have an extensive knowledge of music theory and am a strong reader and improviser of music. Since leaving music college in 1988 I have worked as a professional freelance trumpet player, performing a diverse range of music including classical, jazz, salsa, pop, blues, funk, mariachi and other World music. Performance credits include:

Frank Sinatra
Shirley Bassey
Neil Diamond
Jamie Cullum
The Temptations
The Drifters
Pendulum Jazz Orchestra backing international jazz artists including Kenny Wheeler; Gerard Prescencer; Stan Sulzman and Ben Castle.

I have over thirty years of teaching experience and ALCM and LLCM in composition. I have taught students across a wide range of ages, from beginner to post-grade 8 diploma level. I can also teach jazz improvisation and composition.

I am currently working as a private brass tutor, an examiner for Trinity College London and as the musical director of three choirs.

Tutoring Approach:

I have extensive experience in preparing students for exams with the ABRSM, TCL and LCM exam boards, as well as for GCSE and A-level performances, diplomas and auditions, or just for fun!
