I studied joint first study flute and piano at the royal College of Music and won exhibition scholarships on both instruments. I also won the Eve Kisch flute prize and several other prizes for all-round musicianship. I have given recitals at the Wigmore Hall and Purcell Room (as winner of the Park Lane Group Competition) and live on Classic FM. I worked with the London Philharmonic and Bournemouth Orchestras and toured in South America for the British Council.
As well as many recitals in festivals across the UK, I had many rewarding years the 'Live Music Now!' scheme with my brother Justin and our flutes/marimba duo taking music to the wider community. We also regularly entertained guests of HRH the Prince of Wales at Highrove, Windsor and Buckingham Palace. I recently recorded the wonderful 96 unaccompanied pieces by Koechlin 'Chants de Nectaire' on Hoxa label and the project achieved widespread critical acclaim including Classical CD of the week' in the Guardian.
Online I have given 3 full unaccompanied recitals, run three international competitions with Wissam Boustany, given masterclasses at the Malta school of music and performed the Complete 'Chants de Nectaire' livestreamed from Clifton Cathedral for the Clifton International Music Festival.
My love of folk music led me to recording a CD of classical music inspired by folk music of the British Isles, playing and recording Flamenco music, playing and singing in folk bands and co-founding the Rockhampton Folk Festival now in its seventh year. I am working on a World Music project 'Flute Without Frontiers' to introduce folk styles to younger players.
