Before I turned to performance professionally I spent a number of years pursuing music academically and am still hugely passionate about it. I count Martin Ennis, Nicholas Marston, James Hepokoski and Daniel Harrison as my most formative mentors and teachers. I continue to engage with the academia through a variety of teaching work.
