I have had the good fortune to rehearse and perform alongside a host of excellent musicians in vocal ensembles such as The Singers, the New Vocal Ensemble, Newcastle Camerata and the Montreal Cathedral Singers. All aspects of music - including performance, analysis, history and composition - have been a large part of my life since I began playing in brass bands as a young boy. My passion for the practice and study of music saw me graduate with a BMus (honours) from Newcastle University in 2012.
