I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for my time at the Royal Academy of Music. The people who I met over the five years there are the most remarkable individuals I think I will ever meet – the memories and experiences that I have there as a student, growing and learning my craft as a professional musician will stay with me for the rest of my life.
Alongside working in mainstream education settings, I have spent time after my degree exploring music education of children and young people special educational needs. Progress is relative and individuals need to be judged on their own merits. To be able to have a positive impact on those who struggle with some aspects of learning is a major step forward; I feel humbled to be able to be working with such wonderful young people as a professional musician.
