How old were you when you first started playing?
I’ve been playing guitar since I was seven years old and I am very passionate about all types of music, but mainly guitar-based music ranging from classical guitar (achieved grades 1-7) to heavy rock.

Has playing guitar given you any exciting opportunities?
I’ve been playing in bands since I was 15 and have had the opportunity to travel playing music. I recently went to America to play with some well-known Blues players for a few weeks and I’ve played in Ireland too. I'm also in an original band called ‘Burn The Headlines’ and we currently have our EP on iTunes and Amazon, plus videos on YouTube. I also play a bit of bass, drums and piano and sing in my Blues trio cover band.

Tell us about working at PMT Norwich?
I’ve been working in the music shop since 2006, and because of this I’ve got lots of knowledge of guitar amplification, electric guitars and acoustic guitars. I studied at Further Education College, Music and Music Technology to learn about recording and live sound engineering too so I can help you with recording your own music and performing at gigs!
