" I've worked in music all my life including writing music for BBC television and running a professional recording studio for sixteen years. I've enjoyed running community music projects for the last six years including three years studying music therapy & counselling skills at UWE.

" I run four successful community choirs in Taunton Minehead Tiverton and Exeter and launched an online choir in June of 2021, House Choir, which brings community music making into people's homes around the UK and beyond. I have worked closely with Foxes Academy in Minehead for learners with learning disabilities. I have provided music sessions for Parkinsons UK in North and West Somerset and have run music workshops with Rethink Mental Health Charity and with the brain injury charity Headway. I am currently developing educational programmes for SOMPAR NHS Trust focusing on music and wellbeing. I co founded the Song Therapy Network which offers support and leadership training to community musicians in the UK, Ireland, the rest of Europe and the USA."
