I'm a young musician from Aberdeen who is preparing to study Composition and Conducting at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama.

Despite being still quite young, I have composed various pieces, mainly for small ensembles designed to be both challanging to the player while being incorporating areas of entertainment which are identifiable to a wider audience. My recent works include "Fanfare and Jubilation", "Little Suite" both for which are for Wind Quintet, and "Contest Tryptich" for Brass Quartet. The two Wind Quintet pieces both won there categories in the Aberdeen Music Festival with an outstanding classification and "Contest Tryptich" is to be performed at the Schools Solos and Quartets finals by the Cults Academy Brass Quartet.

On the Conducting front, I currently conduct the Aberdeen City Youth Wind Quintet and the GCO Wind Quintet. In addition, I have in the past conducted the Bon-Accord Silver Brass Band, the Aberdeen University Wind Band, the Cults Academy Wind Quintet and the Grampian Concert Orchestra. Despite my interest in small ensembles, I am interested in taking some larger groups, with which I can develop my Conducting ability.
