I am a graduate with a BA(Hons) in Music from the University of Plymouth with a wealth of experience and skills; a culmination of many years of drive determination. When I was at university, I was active member of various societies and through which, I made several media appearances, including “BBC Children in Need South West” with the University Big Band in 2011.
From 2007 to 2020, I was joined the Army Reserves, or TA as it was known at the time. From 2009, I joined the Salamanca Band of the Rifles, Exeter and transferred to the Band of The Royal Welsh in 2014. Indeed, this is something that has turned out to be a massive feature in my life. For through it, I have acquired knowledge and experience, perhaps unrivalled for other people my age. Through the band I have performed in the Falkland Islands, I have played for the Queen at the Royal Garden Party and many other Royal Dignitaries on at prestigious events including a concert [Swift and Bold] at the Royal Albert Hall.
In January 2013, I am embarked on a trip to Uganda to work with what was a UK Registered Charity - Ugive2Uganda (No. 1115196). Mainly with the Mbale Schools Band, I was teaching and conducting the band. Of the many activities I have partaken in this is one of the best, I participated in so many things (including a performance with the band) and was witness to just as many.
Since 2014, I have been a regular church organist within what is now the Netherwent Ministry Area. When the covid-19 lockdowns hit just before Easter 2020; myself and a few musicians formed a digital worship band to record music for online worship. In two years we recorded over 200 songs, hymns and liturgical music.
