September - Apologies, I've been quiet on here. Like most, I've been adjusting during lockdown. Keeping busy with teaching via Zoom & Skype and running my community choir. Doing a bit of music and video making. Recently posted these on my FB page!


I've started a couple of new recording projects. A collection of relaxation music and the other is a new folky one!


Having said that, I've had to put these to one side for the time being as busy with the day jobs! Also, besides music teaching, I work as a freelance health manager. Just before Covid, I was sponsored to complete my professional registration in health management and so, I've also been extremely busy studying and writing assignments in order to graduate at the end of the year!


May - I have recently been part of the team involved in this wonderful fundraising project in aid of St Michael's Hospice, Hereford. Further details of Hampton Bishop Virtual Open Gardens can be found here:
