I am a double bass player based in Birmingham specialising in jazz and improvised music. I recently graduated from the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire and have been involved in the UK jazz scene for a number of years, most notably with the Clark Tracey Quintet since Jan 2018. In Nov 2018, I appeared as a finalist in the BBC Young Jazz Musician of the year.

Currently teach private lessons from beginner to conservatoire entry level.

Tutoring Approach:

My teaching style is highly focused on teaching good technique and sound production. I believe in learning music by ear and improvising to develop your aural skills and musical ability.
