Music

My interest and love has always been music and how the creative process is realised from the composition through to the live performance

Biography

I have been a professional musician for 30 years and have toured the world with bands such as Jamiroquai, Blur, The Good, TheBad and the Queen and Gorillaz amongst others. I have recorded extensively with the above and have run many shows at The Barbican Hall in the capacity of musical director. The experience I have gained from my professional life has been a major asset in delivering first-hand knowledge of the music business to students.
