Performance

As a singer I have performed as lead singer with function band Wonderboogie and managed my own party band Avenue84. I am a keen choral singer and have sung soprano for the Adelphi Choir (Salford Uni),  2nd soprano with Manchester's Halle Choir, 1st soprano with the La Jolla Symphony Chorus in San Diego and finally, the Choral Club of San Diego and their small ensemble Mink Pack. I regularly provide recorded vocals for clients internationally from custom backing vocals and harmonies to given 4 part choral teach tracks.  As a pianist I play for pleasure but have accompanied for

soloists and choir as needed.

Education

I began piano lessons at age 4 and never looked back! I studied classical voice, piano and music theory as a teenager and enjoyed completing GCSE and A Level Music. I studied music at the University of Salford graduating with 1st Class honours Bachelor of Arts degree in Music specialising in composition and recording. I later gained a PGCE in Secondary Music from Edge Hill University being awarded an 'outstanding' grading for my teaching practice. As a teacher I've completed numerous CPD sessions, most recently the RSL Rockschool Vocals exam workshop, and the Develop Your Vocal Artistry short course at Leeds College of Music. I have ABRSM Grade 5 singing and Grade 6 Piano, and Rockschool Grade 8 Singing (Merit).

Work

I teach Vocal Musicianship, Theory, and Ensemble at the Leeds College of Music Junior Saturday Music School as well as 1:1 vocal tuition to undergraduates.  I worked as Artistic Director to the Choral Club of San Diego as well founding their small ensemble Mink Pack. I have taught voice and piano at a local School of Rock where I was the Choral Director for the Awesome Choir of Rock. I have Qualified Teacher Status and taught music in secondary schools (inc. GCSE and A Level) in the royal boroughs, being recognised as a top contributor by TES Secondary Music resources. I currently offer session singing services online with Fiverr.com and have completed recordings for recognised artists and ensembles around the world. Since 2018 I have been publishing my mainly a cappella choral arrangements through Sheetmusicplus and sold over 500 copies to date.
