My new job at John Packer Ltd

E-mail Print PDF


Some breaking news hot off the press for you: I've accepted a position  working with John Packer Ltd in their shop in Taunton as of Monday 9th November.

I'm really excited about this new challenge, and would urge you all to make use of the services that John Packer Ltd have on offer. Come and see Steve and I in the shop, and if you're at a brass band contest and you see the John Packer Ltd trade stand - come and see us!

My position at John Packer Ltd will mean that my sales and repair services will be strictly for existing customers, or by recommendation, and sadly, I will no longer be able to offer teaching services - there just aren't enough hours in a day!

Visit the John Packer Ltd pages on this website for information about featured JP instruments.

Heroes of the Sky

E-mail Print PDF

As we give thanks today (15th September 2015) for the Royal Air Force, and inparticular it's massive contribution to the future of Great Britain during the Battle of Britain in World War II, I have completely reworked my concert march 'Heroes of the Sky' for brass band.

If you're looking for a piece for your commemorative concert this Autumn, this is for you.


The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

E-mail Print PDF


Another show I'm drumming for - and not one I'm familiar with either!

This production of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is based on the writings of C S Lewis, which has been adapted for the stage by Theresa Heskins with music by James Atherton  It's a collaboration between the Honiton Pantomime Society and other local amateur theatre groups.

This play with music is the perfect outing for the whole family. Featuring mythical beasts, a magical world and one gigantic wardrobe, you won’t be able to resist being drawn into the magical world of Narnia.

Note that the show is on at the new Honiton Beehive and it runs from Friday 31st July to Sunday 2nd August (not Thursday to Saturday as stated on the flyer!), with two performances on Saturday 1st August.

One Life Music

Hey! All you school music teachers out there? Have you discovered One Life Music yet? If not - take minute to have a look. Dan Callow and his team have produced some brilliant songs mostly aimed at young children at school or in clubs / churches that are simple to learn, yet great fun to sing and play - each with a simple and powerful message. We've done the scoring and arrangements for them all, and we highly commend them to you:

They are: I Believe (Book and CD), Let His Glory Shine (Album), The Children's Mass (Resource pack), and Family of Faith (Resource pack). Click on the pictures for more information:
