London, United Kingdom
I have completed my final year at Pembroke College, Cambridge - graduating with a 2.1.
I took my Diploma ABRSM in percussion in July 2009, but since then have learned and performed the William Kraft Timpani Concerto (at least FRSM standard). I was percussionist for the National Youth Jazz Orchestra from 2007-2009. I am versatile and can sight-read + learn repertoire quickly. I have a strong musical ear and an equally strong sight-reading ability. I play for pit-bands, chamber groups, orchestras, big-bands, choirs, rock/indie/jazz bands, percussion ensembles. I am an all-round percussionist/drummer, experienced in many different performance styles/idioms: anything from classical to jazz-fusion. Would prefer professional experience and sight-reading/deputising work over unpaid work - if possible, I can learn material just by listening to recordings on youtube and then attending a sitzprobe/dress/tech rehearsal.
