I am a Head of Music and a Conductor based in South Oxfordshire.

As Head of Music at St. Birinus School, an all-boys state comprehensive, I lead the music curriculum and coordinate the extra-curriculum music provision. I am passionate about pedagogy that makes music accessible to boys, especially around the vocal change.

I am very privileged to direct and conduct Didcot Choral Society, in their thrice yearly concerts. The repertoire is wide ranging, from choral classics to contemporary songs. My philosophy as director is to be inclusive, informative, and to build on the joy that people share in music. I keep all programme notes and other musings here.

I enjoy editing early music and German Lieder, and a few of my editions are available on this website.

I arrange music for boy’s changing voices and for School Ukulele groups, which can be found here. I hope that other educators can find these resources useful!

This website is a good start to get to know me! Have a look at my posts and look through my notes,
