About Me

Hello and thank you for taking some time to explore my website. I have been lucky enough to enjoy a long and fairly varied and distinguished career as a teacher, performer and director. I started out on my musical journey as a pianist and tuba player – who also sang! Following my studies at The Birmingham School of Music (now Conservatoire) as a classically trained Tenor and singing coach I sang professionally at Lichfield Cathedral for five years.

I also set up and was musical director for one of the first professional Steelbands in this country Ansell’s Caribbean Connection. We toured throughout the country and appeared on TV and radio. We performed for Princess Diana and Muhammad Ali. At the same time teaching was becoming increasingly important to me. ¬†I moved to London and taught at Highbury Grove School and then Sir George Monoux College where I was Head of Theatre Arts.I continued to coach privately, direct and compose. I joined Hertford Regional College to lead the Musical Theatre Programmes. Most recently I was¬†Programme Leader for Performing Arts and Music Technology at Shrewsbury College. I developed more Musical Theatre courses, directed shows and the choirs and led the Higher National Programme (Degree level) in performance.

I now coach theatre arts – including singing, acting, piano and composition from my studio. I love working with a wide range of clients – whose ages range from 13 to 70. This includes singer and actors who are auditioning for vocational colleges/universities and professional work; folks who want to improve their singing skills both for pleasure and to perform locally. All sessions are unique to the clients needs and most importantly fun!
