I am a British conductor, clarinettist and academic.
I studied for my undergraduate music degree at Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge, where I held academic scholarships, an instrumental award and sang in the College Choir. While at Cambridge, I had clarinet lessons at the Royal Academy of Music with Angela Malsbury and Tim Lines as part of the University's CAMRAM scheme. In 2020, I graduated with a double first in Music.
Subsequently, I went on to study on the Master of Performance Course at the Royal College of Music. During my time at the RCM, I performed as a section principal with the RCM Symphony Orchestra and was featured in the RCM's 'In Focus' series. My studies included clarinet lessons and classes with Tim Lines, Peter Sparks and Colin Lawson, and conducting classes with Howard Williams.
I began conducting while I was still at school, and I have since worked with a number of ensembles, conducting repertoire ranging from works by John Dunstable and Guillaume Dufay to new commissions. I have also extensively reworked music for my vocal ensemble, Dorian Consort, creating bespoke editions of music by early modern composers such as Lully, Monteverdi and Croce. Recently, I have also created arrangements for the Royal College of Music Wind Ensemble and for the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain's Inspire Ensembles.
