Specialist Art Forms
I am a fiddle and keyboard player, also singer and percussionist, who is passionate about involving people in music making. I firmly believe in the transformative power of music, and have seen its effectiveness in the groups with whom I have worked. They include, at present, adults with learning difficulties , elderly in care, and the elderly mentally ill. I have also worked with children with learning difficulties and complex special needs, with clients with autism, with NEETs and the sensory challenged.
I have an honours degree in music, and a well-established private instrumental teaching practice. I perform professionally at a wide variety of events throughout the year. I compose and arrange both small and large scale works. I bring the experience of 20 years as a full time professional musician and my on-going study and training to a range of community projects, which have recently included Reach the Heights (working with young people), artistic and educational collaborations with Pembrokeshire based Space to Create, as well as running workshops and writing, rehearsing and producing shows with Glasallt Fawr therapeutic community.
