I’m a composer who graduated from King’s College London with a Master of Music in composition, pass with distinction. During my time at King’s, I studied with Dr, Ed Nesbit, who studied with the preeminent Sir George Benjamin, Henry Purcell Professor of Composition. George was a child prodigy and he studied with Olivier Messiaen (one of the major composers of the 20th century) at the Conservatoire de Paris. I also had the privilege to study with Tom Hyde, a student of Sir Peter Maxwell Davies, the former Master of the Queen's Music from 2004 until his death. During my time at King’s, I received numerous opportunities to get my works performed by professional musicians and student ensembles alike. Including violinists Caroline Balding and Florence Cooke playing my work Dialogue for Due Violins (2022), ensemble Lontano playing A Fantasy for Violin, Viola, Cello, Flute and Clarinet (2022), Pavilion Ensemble performing Pretit Concerto for 11 instruments (2023) and KCL Symphony Orchestra playing Sequence for Orchestra (2022).
My music is currently published at the Two Bridge Music Press (still waiting for the release date).
I also graduated as a violinist from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama with a Bachelor of Music in Violin Performance and was awarded with First-Class Honours. During my time at RWCMD, I was fortunate enough to study with André Swanepoel, the Principal Second Violin of the Irish Chamber Orchestra, and Nancy Johnson, who graduated from The Juilliard School and studied under Toby Appel. I also have the opportunity to play in masterclasses under the tutelage of the famous baroque violinist Rachel Podger and Itzhak Rashkovsky, the Professor of violin at the Royal College of Music. When I was still in Cardiff, I received numerous opportunities to perform as a violinist, including at St. David’s Hall, Dora Stoutzker Hall and most notably Royal Albert Hall here in London with the London Welsh Male Voice Choir under the baton of Edward-Rhys Harry.
My teaching style will emphasise building up the facilities of each player and the importance of playing in the right posture. My philosophy on teaching is to stimulate each of my pupils and make sure they are interested in music both as an academic subject and the practical skill required to be a good musician. not just a violinist or composer but a musician. It's important to understand not just what’s on the page but the musical context and nuance behind each piece my students are learning.
