I’m a Musician, Lecturer and Creative Director from Nottingham, UK. In addition to my work with Orange Soul Studios, I currently teach Audio Production Techniques along with Sound and Audio Theory at the Confetti Institute of Creative Technologies, which is part of Nottingham Trent University. I’m also an Honorary Associate with the Music Department at The Open University and an Associate Lecturer, teaching their music courses throughout the UK. In the recent past, I’ve worked for the Royal College of Music on the Listening Experience Database project and I have been an Associate Editor for The International Journal of the Book.
I read Music at The University of Nottingham where I studied composition with Nicholas Sackman. Prior to this, I’d been awarded the Nellie Greenhill Memorial Prize by the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music and in May 2008, I won the Bernard Slee Music Award. I was then fortunate enough to receive a joint scholarship by The Society for Music Analysis together with The University of Nottingham that enabled me to gain a Master’s Degree in 2009. Having been granted a doctoral award from the Arts & Humanities Research Council in England, I’m currently studying for a PhD in Music at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire.
Over the last decade or so I’ve performed across much of the UK in addition to southern Ireland, Germany and the US. My involvements have included studio, television and orchestral work. Having performed with the COMA Ensemble and the Nottingham Symphony Orchestra, I’ve also benefitted from an official endorsement from Warwick basses and I now regularly perform both live and in the studio.
