Music has been a passion since an early age, nurtured by my father who is an accomplished pianist and organist. I started by learning the ‘cello and piano, moving on later to the organ. I also grew up singing in St Edmundsbury Cathedral Choir with the inspiring choirmaster and organist Harrison Oxley. I studied music at Lancaster University, specialising in medieval music under Professor Roger Bray. It was whilst at university that I took up the double bass which became my first study instrument. I continue to play the double bass in various East Anglian-based orchestras.
I took up the viol in 2010 and now play viols with Hexachordia, a trio of early music specialists who give concerts and recitals across the country. I also own and play virginals modelled on Queen Elizabeth the First's own keyboard instrument. I also play the lute.
