Educational Work

I am often invited to guest teach at music conservatoires throughout the UK, which is something I find really rewarding. It is a privilege to have an opportunity to nurture students and enable their learning and musical development. As well as individual lessons, I enjoy giving chamber ensemble coaching and orchestral section training. I have recently become Visiting Artist in Trombone at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, and other guest visits include Guildhall School of Music and Drama, Royal Academy of Music, Royal Northern College of Music and the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. I have given masterclasses at Wells Cathedral and Purcell Schools, coached the National Youth Orchestra and National Youth Concert Band trombone sections, and was on the artist faculty for the 2017 Dublin Brass Week. I have adjudicated for a number of competitions, including BBC Young Musician, Royal Over-Seas League, BBC Radio 2 Young Brass Award, Ian Bousfield/Getzen International Solo, Swisstbone, International Trombone Association and British Trombone Society competitions.
