I am an extremely versatile player, with an extensive background of experience, ranging through styles, occasions and venue's within and around Europe! I started playing the violin (my main instrument) aged 4, and have never looked back! I have played with a number of Orchestra's, from area music centre, to county intermediate and youth orchestra's (Worcestershire Intermediate Orchestra - WIO), as well as a short spell of playing with the Wyre Forest Symphony Orchestra, now for the Ray Of Light Orchestra, London. These are all outside of mainstream educational bands/groups. Within these, I have played various instruments in various bands throughout my school years. Reaching high school came the opportunity to be a part of a Music Tour to Austria, playing lead violin in the schools Irish Band, as well as playing bass guitar for a year groups band focusing on soul music. This Music tour happened consecutively for the following year, where again I played lead violin in the Irish Band and also sang in the "Elton" Band. With the Irish band, the schools group toured local schools within the region over a period of 2 weeks, playing a well rehearsed set to many school children. I have gained recent experience as a Session musician, exploring Music Technology and recording studio set ups. I also now do my own composition and arrangements of songs for myself and for others.
