I have specialised in evaluation for the past 6 years, previously working in arts project management and development, community arts, and production of music events and festivals. Alongside this, I’ve continued part-time music performance and music leading in early years settings.

My formal qualifications include:

  • Bachelor of Music (University of Huddersfield)
  • Postgraduate Certificate in Evaluation Studies (University of South Wales)
  • Diploma in Applied Health Studies (University of the West of England)
  • MSc in Social Research and Evaluation (University of Huddersfield – currently studying, due to complete in 2018).

I’ve been playing music for as long as I can remember. I was 5 years old when my older sister taught me to play Three Blind Mice on her recorder. Over the years I’ve had opportunities to play many different instruments (trumpet, flute, violin, viola, cello, piano, guitar, accordion, ukulele) and explore many different genres and ensembles (marching bands, symphony orchestras, string orchestras, folk-punk bands, bhangra, klezmer and all kinds of traditional music). These days I focus on the violin with world music quintet Malarchy, and play the piano and accordion for my own amusement.

I’m a member of the Musicians Union, Music Education Council, Music Mark and Sound Sense.
