‘I really enjoy teaching here at the College because the students are so naturally curious and eager to absorb knowledge. What's remarkable is that each of them already possesses a strong musical identity. When I was their age, the hybrid path I envisioned, blending classical and non-classical music, wasn't readily available, but I now have what might be called a classic portfolio career. My goal at RWCMD is to help students explore their own unique musical identities and nurture their relationship with music.

I take immense pride in my work with the National Youth Folk Ensemble of Wales project. It's been instrumental in creating a pathway into the music industry for orchestral musicians and several of our original members are now successfully working in that field.’
