ABOUT

I started learning drums at high school, reading and playing in the Worthing and West Sussex Youth Orchestras and then Worthing Symphony and Philharmonic Orchestras. I also played in brass bands (Sovereign Silver Band & West Sussex Brass Band).

Moving on from classical music, I played in a few rock bands and also did musical theatre pit band work. This evolved into 3 years professional playing in a pop band and 250+ musical theatre shows. I did a bit of studio work too whilst professional.

Nowadays I like to maintain a pro approach but enjoy having a bit of fun. I especially like live performance.

Being recently retired I'm looking to play much more now I have the time.
