Delighted to announce I have been asked to start a workplace Choir at Tate St Ives starting this November.

New Music Publication












I'm delighted to annouce the launch of my first music book  'You Can Ukulele!'. I produced this book as part of my work with WILD Young Parents Project and it will be distributed to young families across Cornwall free of charge. The book aims to make learning ukulele simple, to give young children better access to music at home and what better way than to make their parents musicians?! There will be a limited number of copies available for the general public and WILD are asking for a donation of £10 for a copy.
