About Me

I have taught piano, guitar and vocals for many years. I have an ALCM(TD) diploma, 'A' level music, ABRSM Grade 8 in Theory and Grade 8 in Singing with both ABRSM and Rockschool.

I am used to performance as I have played guitar, keyboard and vocals in a rock band for 10 years, playing to audiences around Suffolk, as well as singing in various choirs. My experience in arranging grew from collaboration with others in songwriting for original musical productions.

I currently serve as Musical Director of Suffolk Constabulary Male Voice Choir and enjoy the process of arranging and introducing songs to a fantastic group of men who embrace the old and the new with equal vigour.

I am now offering vocal coaching for people wanting to gain confidence in performance or to work on a particular aspect of voice production.

Arrangements and compositions

I write original music and arrange music under licence primarily for choirs, but also for flute choirs and mixed wind bands. You can also see a full list of my arrangements on Sheetmusicplus.com or Sheetmusicdirect.com


I'm happy to offer a one-off session to help you work out strategies for taking your skill forward. Or I can offer a series of regular sessions to work towards your goal.

Lessons take place at my home studio, based in Martlesham, local to Ipswich, Kesgrave and Woodbridge in Suffolk.
