I'm a grade 8 saxophonist and have been playing for over 10 years now, been in many bands from jazz to reggae as I love all music! I play Alto mainly, but have got a tenor and a soprano too. I went to Uni at Manchester where I studied music. I'm good at soloing and have a good ear. I Can also read and write music. I'm starting to experiment with combining sax and guitar pedals which is proving very interesting and creating some new and different sounds.

I play percussion also and would love to hear from anyone who needs me to play a piece for them, wants me to join in a band, or just wants a jam!
