I look forward to meeting you, and showing you how rewarding learning the cello is! Let's make music!

Recent engagements include performing on the following West Ends shows: The Girls Musical, Kinky Boots, and An American In Paris. Recent orchestral work includes Manchester Camerata and Manchester Concert Orchestra.
