1976-1983 Self Employed Session Musician
I was employed as a keyboard player in many pop, dance, rock and jazz bands across the UK and Europe. I did session work in various recording studios working on projects for EMI, HMV and Hansa Ariola. I was musical director and wrote scores for Davey Jones (Monkees) and Marti Caine, I have worked with artistes such as Boyzone, Tubeway Army, Alvin Stardust, Guys and Dolls, Lena Martell, Limmie and the Family Cooking, Mike Nolan (Bucks Fizz), Delegation.

1983- current Music Production Company Proprietor
I have been running my own Music Production Company producing: demos; albums; backing tracks/ karaoke tracks; jingles; sound effects, for vocalists, bands, drama and dance schools, radio, television and video production. Through my work in recording studios, I have a well-established understanding of most music technology applications and digital/ analogue recording studio equipment and techniques including the use of DAWs such as Cubase and Pro Tools. I have excellent knowledge of sampling and synthesizer programming. As a sole trader I have great experience in the day to day running of a small business, i.e. marketing, accounting, finance, etc. I also have experience in live sound engineering, artiste management, music publishing and promotion.

1983- current Piano/ Keyboards/ Guitar Tutor/ Vocals
I am a session vocalist for music production companies such as Mastertrax, SongGalaxy, providing both sound-a-like lead and backing vocals. I teach part time Piano, Keyboards and Guitar privately and on contract as a peripatetic tutor for schools with Leicestershire Arts in Education for the local council. I have also provided piano accompaniment for children’s examinations for flute and clarinet grades 1-8 for the music for schools foundation. I have also coached vocals and harmonies for local bands.

Through my work in recording studios, I have a strong understanding of most music technology applications and digital/ analogue recording studio equipment and techniques, including DAWs such as Cubase and Pro Logic, an excellent knowledge of sampling and synthesizer programming. I am a fluent sight-reader and am more than competent in every style of music as a pianist, keyboard player and guitarist I can improvise or busk most material. I can compose music in any given style, lyrics set to music/ music composed around lyrics.
I was trained classically on the piano from the age of 7 to grade 8 (pass) and reached diploma standard. I played the French Horn when I was at school to grade 8 (distinction) and toured with the Leicestershire Schools Intermediate Orchestra.
I can score musical arrangements for a small band to a full symphony orchestra. I have managed artistes to help them establish themselves on the road in a gigging situation. I have worked on a project delivering Music Technology and Sound Recording workshops to primary schools.
