More information...

Originally from Haverfordwest, I am now living and working in Carmarthen having spent 10 wonderful years in Essex.

2022 had been a very exciting year so far. After 17 years as a teacher, culminating as a Head of Sixth Form, I took the plunge and left full time education to focus on composing, conducting and performing

I have had a long connection with brass banding, having been lucky enough to perform with, Pembroke Silver Band, Rhadyr, Burry Port, Clacton, Essex Police & Crwbin Silver. In addition it has been my privilege to conduct both Severn Tunnel & Crwbin.

Highlight of my time in banding include making it to the national finals in the RAH with Burry Port, winning the 4th Section in my first year with Severn Tunnel and helping Crwbin reach the 2022 National finals for only the second time in their history.

As a composer I am currently attached to Larch Music who have published a large number of works for both brass band and symphonic wind band. Commissions include work for the NULCO orchestra and an S4C commission broadcast on Christmas Day

His works for the brass band medium include:
Tylwyth Teg suite
Airshow
The Vulcan
A Carmarthen suite
Suo Gan
Irish windows lament
Platinum Reign
Dresden
Pentre Ifan
The English Electric Lightning
