As a teacher I have worked for over 10 years with vocal students of all ages and abilities. I have been fortunate enough to have been musical director of many choirs over my career and enjoy conducting very much.

'From the point of entering into the conservatoire I found myself singing in an assortment of professional engagements which never really stopped'


For the past 20 years, I've refined my technique and musicianship through performance and teaching. I have gained a broad set of skills which place me in a good position both as performer and mentor.

I am a Scottish Italian living as an Australian resident in the Melbourne area.

Graduating from the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester England  with a BA Mus GRNCM I have had an extensive career spanning continents as an opera singer. I have been fortunate enough to have  worked as both a soloist and freelance singer with some of the  finest orchestras and conductors in some of the worlds best opera houses.
I have made recordings for radio and television as well as CD and DVD commercial release.

My voice  is best suited to the Italian repertoire of Verdi and Puccini. I have a natural lyrico spinto voice with reliable high notes and a bright dramatic timbre to my voice with lots of squillo.  As well as Opera, I have performed extensively in oratorio and in concert recital. I have sung my fair share of musical theatre and enjoy the challenge of working in a new genre of music.

As a performer I have toured the UK extensively as part of a tenor group and opera quartet servicing audiences in theatres from major cities to remote villages.

I have also worked as a composer, arranger and vocal / choral conductor of various choirs throughout my career.

As a teacher and vocal coach I have found myself  in demand for my technical knowledge and ability to communicate technique with my students. In my performing and in my teaching I hope I can demonstrate my passion for the art of singing. It has been said that my teaching style caters for the individual and is a new fresh approach to bel canto technique.

In my capacity as a professional singer I believe it is important to work as a mentor with young singers entering the profession.

I am lucky to be  happily married to my wife Elaine and have three beautiful children, Chloe , Luca and Aria.
