Born locally, I am an experienced performer and former winner of the Jersey Young Musician of the Year competition. I graduated with an academic degree in music from King's College London in 2005, with a specific emphasis on early music history. Meanwhile, I was tutoring underprivileged children as a volunteer, giving violin, piano and singing lessons plus teaching general theory. Singing with the chapel choir at university led to my founding of the Capella Ave Maris Stella which led a short but successful career singing for traditional Catholic liturgies in the London area. I subsequently embarked on an adventure which saw me teaching music in an inner city school before jetting off to France and America for a major period of self-examination. It is during this time that I finally learnt to play the organ at the Institut Croix des Vents, where I also taught secondary music, and perfected the art of singing Gregorian Chant in the early 'semiological' style.
After my return to Jersey, I taught privately for a while. I am currently on the teaching faculty of the Jersey Academy of Music (primarily piano) and the Jersey Music Service (primarily strings - violin, viola and cello). I enjoy my work with both organisations, which provides a wide variety for me during the week!
In 2018 I completed the new PGCert in String Teaching awarded by the University of Chichester and the European String Teachers' Association.
I am a member of (and manage) Due Archi and Stringendo, and I play occasionally as a dep for a local quartet. In addition to this, I am a regular member of the Jersey Symphony Orchestra and Jersey Chamber Orchestra.
