I am Director of Music at King Edward VI Grammar School (known as KEGS) in Chelmsford, where I have worked for nearly 13 years. It’s a very quirky place – my best description of it is “a school for geeks, run by geeks”. So it suits me.
I have a wide variety of interests at school and I’m an officer in the CCF, help out with D of E, attend the lunchtime chess club and debating society (mostly to get a free lunch), and run the cricket tours to the Caribbean (a tough job but someone’s got to do it).
There are quite a lot of things I feel strongly about but this blog will try to stay focussed on music in education and broader educational themes. I will also try not to repeat what is written (much better) elsewhere. If you want to get in touch (I love to talk things through, to get to the nub of an argument) then please message at the end of a blog or find me on twitter:
