I began the flute at the age of 7, and after taking grade 8 at 14, and my performance and teachers diplomas at the age of 18, and began my music degree at Leeds College of Music. I am now in my second year. At the college I have perfomed in many lunch-time recitals and some evening concerts. Last November (1998)I performed the Ibert Flute Concerto with the college symphony orchestra.

Also in connection with the college I have been given the chance to participate in scholarships. In my first year I won the Robert Tebb Scholarship, and this year I won the Rotary Club of Leeds Scholarship. As a result of this scholarship I will be performing at the Leeds Civic Town Hall on the 20th June, and at the Art Gallery on the 12t January, 2000. Other solo events include a recital at Michael House School, Heanor, Derbyshire on the 3rd July, and at Bakewell Parish Church on the 5th July.

Before coming to Leeds College of Music I played lead flute with Derbyshire County Youth Wind Band and Orchestra, and toured Israel and Holland with the wind band, performing the flute solo 'The Carnival of Venice'. Whilst in Holland in July 1998 I also came 2nd in the 'Purmerade International Youth Solo Competitions. I have also been teaching the flute for 6 years.
