As a performer I find myself working all over the world on many different projects with some of the most inspirational, enthusiastic and brilliant musicians around. This experience, together an infectious enthusiasm, forms the basis of my teaching career, which runs alongside my performing and involves courses, workshops and private lessons.
December 2010 saw the release of my solo CD 'Songs Without Words'. Featuring music by Monteverdi, Schütz, Frescobaldi, Castello, Fontana, Ortiz, Van Eyck and brand new divisions and improvisations on classic songs, this is the first full-length CD to feature the sackbut as a solo instrument.
