By day, I'm a teacher of Percussion at Central Coast Conservatorium, Gosford, NSW Australia. I'm a multi-instrumentalist, playing Piano, Percussion, Trombone, Trumpet/Cornet, as well as dabbling in other instruments from time to time. I play in community Brass Bands, Concert Bands and Orchestras as well as community theatre productions. I majored in Composition at the University of Newcastle Conservatorium of Music, graduating in 2008. A number of my works published here originated as exercises or assignments but have since evolved into fully-fledged works in their own right.
