I have worked in the disability arts industry for over 20 years as campaigner, teacher, composer and founder and CEO of The Music Man Project - an award-winning music education service for people with disabilities. I was awarded the Medal of the Order of the British Empire in the 2021 Queen's New Year Honours List and I am a Churchill Fellow, Paul Harris Fellow, Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and a Global Peace Ambassador. I studied at the Guildhall School of Music, King’s College London, the Royal Academy of Music and the Institute of Education. My teaching is the basis of PhD research at the Royal College of Music. I have enabled my students to break a world record, perform to Royalty, appear in a TV advert and perform to sell-out audiences at the London Palladium and Royal Albert Hall. I have taken my services around the world.
