Recognised as a leading early music specialist, I am a versatile musician, highly respected as a soloist, continuo player, researcher and choral director.

Performance dominated the first ten years of my career, most notably as principal continuo player and assistant to Sir John Eliot Gardiner. Between 2005 and 2015 I developed my academic teaching, research and choral conducting. I currently combine performance, instrumental teaching and research.

I am currently preparing to record ‘La Brillantina’, a disc of 16th-century music from Venice,  with cornettist Gawain Glenton. Please support me through this crowdfunder page:
