Other Musical Roles

Hello everyone. I have been conducting large ensembles since 2009.   This is something which I hugely enjoy. Due to my many years as a brass-playing professional orchestral and chamber musician as well as a teacher, I have the requisite skills to bring out the best in any musician.  The teamwork aspect of working in a large ensemble is very stimulating.  The end product is always greater than simply adding the constituent parts and this is what the rehearsal process is about. A time of challenges yet also fun.
