I studied under the tutelage of Nicholas Daniel before winning a place to Chetham's School of Music where I studied with Valerie Taylor. I then went onto the Royal College of Music in London for my undergraduate studying with Christopher Cowie, David Theodore and Gareth Hulse. I subsequently decided to stay for a postgraduate at RCM under the tutelage of John Anderson. During my postgraduate I also took part on an Erasmus exchange to the Staaliche Hochschule fÃ¼r Musik und Darstellende Kunst in Stuttgart, Germany studying with Christian Schmitt. I am also an active chamber musician, playing with the Armartis ensemble ((concealed information) and have had experience playing professionally with orchestras including the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Royal Ballet Sinfonia and Royal Scottish National Orchestra.
