Personal Description:

I currently study Music at the University of York specialising in Composition and Jazz Trombone Performance with Dennis Rollins. My composition interests are mainly based around Eastern modal music and incorporating this with jazz idioms. I have also developed an interest in writing music for the Harp, ensembles including the Harp and I have been working closely with York/Slough based Harpist, Eleanor Dunsdon.

As a performer I enjoy playing all kinds of jazz including small combos, big bands and contemporary jazz ensembles. I also enjoy the world of contemporary classical music and I have had plenty of opportunities to develop my skills in this area with The Chimera Ensemble at the University of York.

Tutoring Experience:

I have a range of teaching experience including all brass instruments, keyboards, composition, theory and conducting.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to music tuition varies from pupil to pupil. Some wish to work towards graded music exams and others want to learn for fun; both a valid reasons to want music lessons and I pride myself on my ability to tailor lessons to an individual. There is no "play it like me otherwise you're wrong" approach in my lessons.
