What a wonderful student concert we all just witnessed! My cornet and trumpet students, many whom are working towards exams, performed so well for their families and friends. Thanks to all who came along to support our young people. LT
I had the great honour of tutoring five wonderful young trumpet players throughout the Easter break. Tertiary students from across the country flocked to the stunning facilities at Melbourne University’s Ian Potter Southbank Centre: the new home of the Music Conservatorium.

It was my great pleasure to be able to attend the concert Hemispheres on the final day of October, 2018, presented by the brass band of the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. Creatively curated by Dr. Robert Childs, the concert featured my opening number Flight, commissioned by the RWCMD mid-year. Continue here for a review of the wonderful concert.
It was brilliant to co-adjudicate with Erin Ellenburg for the Open Flugelhorn section at the 2018 Yamaha Australian National Band Championships.
The third movement from my Flugelhorn Concerto was the set piece. It was exciting to hear so many variations of the work, especially given that I’ve only ever performed the work myself and never actually watched a performance.
Congratulations to everyone who performed! Thank you for taking the time to learn quite a challenging work.
