At school I studied Music GCSE and up to grade 5 singing, but more recently I brought my studies right up-to-date with a full-time Level 3 BTEC 90 Credit Extended Diploma in Popular Music Performance. I studied at West Kent College in Tonbridge, which has an amazing set of tutors and great facilities for students. My hard work paid off in July 2015: I achieved a Distinction*Distinction*Distinction grade, which is one off the highest achievable mark.
I took a year out and then decided to undertake a BMus Honours Degree in Popular Music, with a view to studying for an MA in Music Therapy in the future. I now study full time at the University of Kent, Medway campus, based at the Historic Dockyard, Chatham. It’s a beautiful, inspirational place!
In 2014 I sang and played trumpet on a Christmas single that I recorded as part of The Acoustic Reverbs. It’s still available here, with all proceeds going to a charity for children with life-limiting illness, Taylor Made Dreams.
I currently sing with my keyboard-playing friend, Mike Emery, as part of a duo and sometimes with my guitarist friend, John, as another duo. Our repertoire is broad-ranging, from 60’s hits to present day. Mike and I rehearse regularly and are always adding more songs.
