Hi, I teach Trumpet, Music Theory, Music Technology and Composition.
I am a Multi-instrumentalist, producer, composer and bandleader; I graduated in 2018 with a Bachelor of Arts in Fine Art from the University of the West of England. Since graduating, I have been teaching full-time and am currently completing a Level 4 Certificate for Music Educators from Trinity College at Enact Music.
Working in Bristol, I have been part of the city’s vibrant contemporary jazz scene and released pop music under my stage name ‘LYLE!’. My experiences, both playing my music and as a session musician in loads of different styles and genres, have had me play up and down the UK, most notably performing at Glastonbury 2019 after winning a grassroots competition judged by founder Michael Eavis.
I have a strong teaching philosophy that focuses on specifically tailored learning paths that give a student the tools to become self-sufficient in playing and creating music, whether to relax at home, play with others, or write their songs!
