At the moment I'm writing music for absolute beginners. My opinion is that beginners should be put on stage as soon as possible (for family, friends and so on), to give them self confidence and inspiration to continue with their instruments. To do that, they need proper music, and why not give them new original music, written with the intention to be simple and easy to play, but good sounding.

My primary instrument was the tenor trombone, but now I'm playing different flutes (tin whistles and recorders) in a folk band. With the trombone I used to play with brass bands, marching bands, symphonic orchestras and big bands.

Best regards
