‘Without discovering music, I don’t know where I would be.’
“Having started playing the clarinet at an early age, I had little idea of how music would structure the rest of my life. In school, it was something I thoroughly enjoyed and got excited about but it was only when I gained an A* in GCSE that I thought ‘Maybe I’m actually quite good at this?’
Even as my education progressed, I didn’t really know the true impact it would have until I went to university and achieved my B.A in Music. While there, I pushed my skills beyond where I thought possible and through becoming a multi-instrumentalist, composer, conductor and musical director, I found my real passion for music.
Since then, I have continued to work in these areas, as well as secondary school music teaching and most recently, music journalism. Throughout all of this, I have discovered more musicians than I could have ever imagined, and heard and performed more music than I would have ever thought existed.
Perfectly combining all the experiences I’ve had through my 20+ years of being involved in music, I launched ListentoDiscover in February 2017. It is safe to say that without discovering music, I don’t know where I would be.”
