Chamber successes include winning the Pro Corda National Chamber Music Competition that led to a performance at Wigmore Hall and performing at the Swaledale music festival with his brass quintet. Notable musical theatre engagements include principal trombone on Phantom of the Opera with Milton Morrissey Productions, One Enchanted Evening at Glastonbury Abbey, which was endorsed by Sir Cameron Mackintosh and Michael Eavis, as well as principal trombone with the Italia Conti Academy.
