Originally from Reading, Berkshire, I grew up in Tavistock, Devon. My early musical years were spent with my local town band (Stannary Brass Band), Bodmin Town Youth Band, City of Plymouth Wind Band and The Royal Naval Volunteer Band, Devonport. Having moved to Barnsley to study under David Hirst and Roger Webster, I joined Carlton Main Frickley Colliery Band in the year 2000. I played with Brighouse and Rastrick Band and Grimethorpe Colliery Band, mostly on Repiano Cornet and Flugel Horn before returning to CMFCB in 2009, where I continue to occupy the Repiano Cornet seat. I currently work as a part-time teacher, musical director and bandmaster at CMFCB, previously conducting West Yorkshire Police Band and working with various bands for rehearsals, concerts and contests. My passion for brass banding continues to be the focus of much of my free time; however, more recently I am finding the time to compose, arrange and perform with a variety of ensembles.
