St. Peter’s Flower Festival

My pupils had the wonderful opportunity to play some relaxing background music for St. Peter’s Parkstone’s Flower Festival on 29th and 30th June.

Most of my pupils that volunteered to play have only been playing for under 2 years and managed to put together a half an hour set. It sounded really beautiful in the church and the flowers looked amazing. Well done and thank you to everyone who took part.

“Both the cello and harp were so calming and everyone was very impressed and felt it added considerably to the ambience of the Festival.” St. Peter’s Church


Kelly and Paul’s Wedding

I loved playing at an old school friends wedding at the Mirimar Hotel in Bournemouth.

It was an beautiful wedding in an amazing venue. Thank you to the lovely staff who were really professional and provided coffee!

Thank you to John at Columbia Photography for these photos.

Congratulations Kelly and Paul, best wishes for the future!

Composing at Kimmeridge

Yesterday evening I popped down to Kimmeridge with my tiny lap harp to start a composition about the bay. I was torn between writing a tune about the nodding donkey on the cliff top or about sea. In the end the sea won! It was such a lovely calm evening (if a little cold!) Hopefully I’ll go back to Kimmeridge again in the near future to record a video of the finished tune!
