I live and work in Malvern, Worcestershire, UK. I am primarily a clarinettist and saxophonist and spend my time teaching instrumental and curriculum music in schools and playing in various groups. When I am not out and about I am usually at my computer composing, arranging or engraving and editing music.
I studied the clarinet initially with Doug Drake, then with Bernard Griffiths and at Leeds University with Paul Orton, who also introduced me to the saxophone. Much of my playing happens with the Malvern Big Band, our local Chandos Symphony Orchestra and the Black Pear Symphonic Winds.
