BACKGROUND

As a flautist I have regularly been performing with various jazz groups, new music ensembles, symphony orchestras, pop artists and non-Western music groups, both as a band member and as a guest in the UK and different parts of the world.
I studied flute at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama with Kathryn Lukas, Philippa Davies, Peter Lloyd and participated in master classes given by the late Geoffrey Gilbert.  I studied jazz with the late Lionel Grigson.
I am a professor at both the Trinity College of Music and the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. I have given consultations, workshops or coached at the Trinity College of Music, York and Durham Universities as well as The Centre for Young Musicians, Morley College.
