What do you do?
I am currently the music teacher for Cedar Mount Academy in Gorton, Manchester.
What is your background?
My musical beginnings were tied closely with DJing and electronic music. Shortly after getting into music production in my spare time at school, I began to take instrumental playing seriously and now I love to blend these two disciplines together. Sampling, synthesis and sequencing fascinates me!
What are you most looking forward to working with Musical Futures on this programme?
I have been using Musical Futures during the entirety of my NQT year as well as my PGCE. The informal nature of learning really appeals to me, and music is definitely a subject that is to be learnt practically first and theoretically later!
