He has been leader of the Royal Ballet Orchestra, co-leader of the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, a BBC recitalist, soloist with the London Haydn Orchestra, soloist for Royal Ballet Covent Garden Royal galas, and soloist with the Bournemouth Sinfonietta.  He also directs his own ensemble, Stromenti performing popular classics and baroque.

His violin is a Giuseppe Marconcini once played by Paganini.
