About Me

ABOUT ME

 

I have been playing drums for over 15 years and have been teaching for around 10, I have been incredibly fortunate to have played with some of the best musicians from all around the world.

 

I turned professional in late 2018 after a 5 year career within the RAF, although not serving as a musician, i had the opportunity to travel the world including the middle east, the mediterranean and all four corners of the UK.

 

Before joing the RAF i played in many bands local to me in Oxford and in London, playing around the country.

Once in the RAF i played for various function bands all over the world, however, the need to play music never fully ceased, whether that was playing heavy metal, jazz fusion or pub covers I just love playing music and can't imagine a world im which i couldn't play full time.

 

"There are two types of music, good music and bad music" - Quincy Jones

 

Throughout my military career i played for the RAF voluntary bands association where i taught myself to sight read to a high level, this was a great introduction to marching arrangements and playing with a  conductor.

 

Now a father to a wonderful daughter there is no better time to do what I love professionally.
