As many people know, the accent gives it away, I was born in Hull, East Yorkshire in 1961. Yes, that’s right the city that comes usually at the bottom of every league table going! But I am proud of my roots and always will be, Hull was the City of Culture 2017!
I found the clarinet at an early age but even earlier found a passion for Hull City Football Club. 500 miles round trip for a home game, from ‘Boothferry to Wembley’ and all that!!
I have been so fortunate to have been influenced by some amazing people throughout my life that have guided me either directly or indirectly.
Without the support of my parents I wouldn't be doing what I do. I can look back on early experiences and know that without them my life would have taken a very different path.
Music is a constant, enriching journey of discovery.
My journey started listening to the incomparable sound of Jack Brymer and witnessing Stevie Wonder display the power of music....
