Freelance musical director, artistic director, singing coach, accompanist and adjudicator, working internationally.
I am a freelance musician, and am also Artistic Director of Thames Concerts, Chorus Master for the Leith Hill Musical Festival, Founding Director of Kingston Chamber Singers, a lecturer in musical theatre at the University of Portsmouth, and a generalist music adjudicator for the British and International Federation of Festivals.
Specialising in musical theatre, I have been musical director on numerous productions, and a reflective product of this has been my continuing work in most of the major London performing-arts colleges. Countless of my former students enjoy successful careers in the West End and beyond, and I remain busy as a private singing tutor, and also teach singing at Tiffin Girls' School.
Born and based in London, I trained initially as a flautist, and subsequently majored in piano, singing and conducting. I work a great deal as an accompanist in musical theatre repertoire but collaborate in a variety of genres with countless singers and instrumentalists in concerts and other performing environments.
I am a Liveryman and Court Member of the Worshipful Company of Musicians, organising and chairing the Company’s annual musical direction scholarship. I also chair the Company's Jazz Committee.
Outside of music, I am a keen motorcyclist.
Thames Concerts is a charitable foundation which exists to promote and present an annual series of high quality concerts and masterclasses in the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames.
