Welcome to my web site.

I hope this site will serve as a background to my activities as a professional musician, educator and my musical interests.

My work in percussion and 20th century music has led to many published articles, writings and interviews that are proving to be valuable resource materials for students and scholars.

I am also webmaster for the  Olivier Messiaen web site that features news, concert calendar, previously unpublished photographs and much more.

There is also a dedicated page on the Ondes Martenot.

ALL SAINTS SESSIONS were booked for a live Session in the 200-year-old Monitorial Schoolroom at the British Schools Museum in Hitchin as part of their new Winter Concerts season, then Lockdown 3 happened so instead, we filmed the show in this terrific space for later transmission. Our line up is the same as our Poetry in Aldeburgh show last November – guest poet Isabelle Baafi, plus Ian Burdge on cello and Malcolm Ball on ondes Martenot and percussion.

Our show will be broadcast on the museum’s YouTube channel on Saturday 27th March 8pm GMT. We have just started mixing the show but it is already sounding amazing and was beautifully filmed by Christopher Gavin.

Tickets £5
