Musical Direction

I specialize in conducting, with a primary focus on wind bands. My knowledge across the genre is substantial and I can advise bands and ensembles, support established band conductors or offer myself as a guest conductor. My energetic approach is proven to enthuse the musicians and generate quick and satisfying results for all. Using my own unique coaching methods, I absorb the abilities of the musicians and gauge all rehearsals on the basis of each performer. Everyone is important and has something to contribute and I allow this to shine though so everyone gets the feeling he or she has made a worthwhile contribution, whatever their standard.
