I have worked with many organisations, including:
Music has the power to change lives, to connect people, to feed our emotions, to drive economic and social change, to develop our language and express ourselves.

Scientific research has proven the effectiveness that music has in supporting a person’s academic development.
However, many young people still don’t have access to an instrument or the tools needed to get started. This is why I have created a selection of tutorials, based around my favourite FREE online music making resources.

My music delivery has been the focus of two academic research studies, one undertaken by the University of Leicester and the other by the University of Nottingham.
