Having recently completed an MA degree in music performance, I am passionate about community oriented arts and currently work to provide access to arts within communities. My particular passions include both the historical and modern sociological uses of music, as well as making live music and music participation events accessible to local communities, especially those who have recently struggled with difficulties around social isolation.
In addition to my MA, I hold an LRSM Diploma in clarinet performance and an ALCM Diploma in music composition. I teach music including online lessons and have worked as a paid chorister. Other projects have included museum work, where I contributed an article about the use of brass instruments in Somerset stone mines.
