I am a graduate of the 'Guildhall School of Music and Drama' and finished with an overall first in 2005. Now I spend my time performing in various groups, teaching the next generation of musicians and composing and arranging music for the ensembles I work in.
As a composer my music has been played on BBC Radio 3 and BBC Solent and on the saxophone I am experienced in many genres of music from classical to jazz, soul and funk. In terms of classical music I have played with various orchestras but currently enjoy performing with my saxophone quartet 'Marici Saxes' at recitals, concerts and functions. We are all classically trained musicians and have released two albums which feature several popular classics, traditional folk music and my own compositions.
Over the last fifteen years I have performed in many different ensembles which include the Guildford Philharmonic, Darvra's Wave, Cellorhythmics, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Yazz Ahmed, Planningtorock, London Jazz Orchestra, Eden Billy Simpson, Sarum Orchestra, Joan As Police Woman and the Brandenburg Sinfonia at venues such as the Royal Albert Hall, Vortex Jazz Club, Queen Elizabeth Hall, QEH Foyer, St Martin In The Fields, Royal Festival Hall, Wigmore Hall, Cheltenham Jazz Festival, BBC Television Centre and National Portrait Gallery. As a performer I have also played on various radio stations which include Scala Radio, Classic FM and Radio X.
As well as performing regularly I also enjoy teaching and work for St Albans School and The London Oratory School. I have also deputised at the Royal College of Music Junior Department, Farleigh School, St Benedict's School and St Swithun's. Currently I am also one of the tutors for the Hampshire Jazz Centre.
