BSc Mus (Open), MA Mus (Open), MISM

Specialist Musician & Company Director

 

I'm a classically trained professional musician with a portfolio career. My principle instrument is the classical guitar, though I'm increasingly called upon as a multi-instrumentalist to work  with contemporary guitar styles, bass, piano, strings, harp, percussion, voice and some woodwind and brass.

 

I have enjoyed a successful performing career as a concert classical guitar soloist and as a session artist playing  electric guitar for live tours and commercial recording work throughout Europe. I still perform from time to time, mainly as a classical guitarist for ceremonies, functions and charity events. Find out more here.

 

I have twenty years experience as a peripatetic instrumental tutor both privately and in schools and have worked with students with special educational needs throughout my career.  My educational offering is now tailored solely for those with additional requirements.  I work with therapeutic insight, drawing on educational and music psychology concepts and using improvisation as a basis for my teaching. My practice is supervised by a clinical music therapy supervisor and I am a member of BAMT. You can find out more about specialist tuition here

 

I am a trained Musician in Healthcare, currently working with District Musicians CIC to deliver music sessions for older people in a secure dementia assessment unit. I trained as an apprentice with Opus Music CIC in hospitals across the East Midlands and am a member of The National Alliance of Musicians in Healthcare (NAMIH). I qualified in drum circle facilitation as a workshop leader for Musicians Without Borders in Amsterdam in 2018.

 

I graduated from The Open University with a Bachelor's degree in 2006, Master's in 2013 and am prepraring to start my PhD research in the near future. I continue to evolve as a musician and practitioner and have an unsiatiable appetite for CPD. I work on a freelance basis, across the Midlands and further afield by request.  I am fully qualified, insured and have enhanced DBS clearance.

 

Away from work, I enjoy playing the viola with First Position Strings and aspire to a quiet life with two dogs, two horses, my partner and a small herd of children :-)
