As a performer, I spent the major part of my career as Assistant Principal Flute in the HallÃ© Orchestra (1980-2001). Since leaving the orchestra to freelance and to pursue composition studies at Manchester University, I have worked on a freelance basis with many orchestras and freelance ensembles. As a chamber musician I have given recitals throughout England and Wales with Free Trade Winds wind quintet and more recently with my Flute, Viola and Harp trio, Trio Fauve and my quartet, Arioso.
Throughout my professional career I have maintained a very active interest in flute teaching, predominantly through my private teaching practice, tutoring a number of pupils, some of whom have gained places as undergraduates and postgraduates at major music colleges such as the R.N.C.M., Birmingham Conservatoire and Trinity College. I have also spent periods teaching at Manchester University and MMU.
