I have known that I wanted to take this direction from an early age because I have always been surrounded by musicians and music. I was given my first guitar at the age of four and from then I have had encouragement and the drive to always be involved in music playing developing my skills to play at a high level. Throughout the duration of middle school I was involved in many bands which had the opportunity to play in competitions, including Staffordshire rocks where we got chosen for the grand final.
I have always wanted to learn as many instruments as I could, as I have always wanted an understanding of a wide range of instruments. When I started working with different musicians I wanted to understand their roles more and their instruments so that I could create more ideas and start to write my own music, which is something I am passionate about. Writing music is a hobby which I rely on a day to day basis. I always try to keep up personal projects alongside college projects so that I can express myself as much as possible.
Writing music has always been the key way of expressing my emotion and I do this by creating music throughout many genres. I have also been asked to write music for other musicians before and I know this is one of my top aspects. I started teaching guitar lessons as I wanted to develop my skills working with people by teaching them techniques on their instrument. The instruments I have learnt so far are guitar, bass, vocals, piano, violin, ukulele, drums and percussion; this has given me a greater knowledge and understanding of Western music.
The work of Mark Tremonti (successful guitarist and songwriter from the band Alter Bridge) has inspired me in particular, I have always loved the style he plays and I tried to apply this style to my own work in my band. The playing techniques of Mark Tremonti are very similar to my own and I aspire one day to have worked with as many different artists as he has.
I have started to become a Disk Jockey (DJ) about 2 years ago and this has encouraged me to get involved with film production and advertising. Making money through music is my future and I am determined to create professional music, sound effects and advertising around the world to all genres and people.
