Personal Description:

I have been a professional musician for the last decade. As a singer, I have performed in a variety of capacities as a highly rated classical, Jazz and Contemporary tenor. In my career have performed in venues like the Pizza Express Jazz Club Soho, Matt and Phred's Manchester, St Pauls Cathedral, The Royal Festival Hall, The Edinburgh Jazz Cafe, The Old Blue Last and at Chichester Festival Theatre.

My love of music began at 's Hospital School, Horsham where I held a music scholarship for Clarinet and Voice. In my time at the school I lead the renowned school choir, and recorded for BBC Radio 3, performed as a soloist at Salisbury Cathedral, St. Pauls, The Royal Festival Hall, St Martin's Cathedral Ypres, Queens College Oxford, New College Oxford, Keble College Oxford and Glyndebourne. I have also worked as a choral conductor for small ensemble performances across the south coast.

I have toured Poland with Keble College Oxford as a tenor, performing in Krakow Cathedral, in the Wieliczka Salt Mine and at Auschwitz and Birkenau for one of the last surviving holocaust survivors.

I then attended the Eton Choral Courses to further expand my knowledge and was invited to join the world renowned Rodolfus Choir by Ralph Allwood. I was offered a choral scholarship to Oxford University, though ultimately accepted the prestigious Vice-Chancellors Scholarship for Musical Excellence at Durham University for the chance to be taught by Sir Thomas Allen.

I enjoyed the atmosphere at Durham immensely, and performed constantly in Classical ensembles, Jazz groups and covers bands. I won 'Best Vocalist' at the North east Big Band Competition with the Durham University Big Band. I have spent the decade since performing constantly in London as a professional contemporary/Jazz singer, taught music at primary school level, own/run a recording studio in north london, and will be completing a masters degree in Music Production/Performace from September 2022.

As a producer, I have produced and written tracks for artists for the last five years, most recently the band Yardlander, who's single was playlisted by Spotify, recieved significant radio play on Future Hits Radio and Future Radio and garnered major label attention.

Music is my absolute passion, something I have dedicated my life to in all its guises and genres. My music teachers were the most important figures in my early life. They gave me an outlet for everything I couldn't get out elsewhere, providing a safe place for free expression and nurturing my independence in exploring the arts. I hope with all my pupils to encourage them in the same way I was encouraged.

Tutoring Experience:

I am a former teacher, having spent over a year as the head of music at a primary academy in north London. I have tutored/taught many young musicians/producers privately over the last decade alongside my performing and production schedules and have found the experience rewarding in the extreme.

NOTE: Some sessions require the use of my studio if lessons at the pupils home is not possible, and therefore have a higher price per session and will only be available on weekends when the studio is not otherwise being used.

This includes but is not limited to:
- Music Production
- Music Technology
- Percussion Drums

Tutoring Approach:

I like to build my tuition around the pupil, looking to build interest and critical thinking into their learning of artistic expression. We will have regular goal setting sessions, and reflections on the last set of sessions to guage what is and isn't working for the particular student. Students can work towards recognisable markers of attainment (ABRSM or Trinity Grades), or for techincal/internal markers for success, whichever inspires them more.
At all times, I want my sessions to be a self, welcoming and questioning environment for all pupils.

The arts has the incredible ability to help build confidence, critical thinking and emotional fluency the value of which sits ourside the purely musical, I have foud that the lessons learned in music are lessons that carry on to all facets of my adult life, and I hope that my pupils will feel the same.
