'O Lord, open my lips, and my mouth shall show forth Your praise' (Psalm 51:15 NKJV)
Hello, and Welcome to my Website
These pages offer news and information regarding my work as a musician and music teacher. I do hope you will find this site useful and helpful.
For my tuition work there are pages of information regarding my private teaching practice & work within schools here in Norfolk. I am a registered and full member of the ISM (Incorporated Society of Musicians) and the Musicians Union.
Regarding my playing work, I have started to assemble my own personal account of how the band & project IONA came into being. These origins came from within my long association and touring/recording work with the musician & composer Adrian Snell and subsequent discoveries of the Celtic origins of the Christian faith within these Islands. Do click the link for IONA (under the heading Performance & Recording) to find out more about this very significant part of my journey. It is my intention to work further on these writings during the summer months (July/August).
Enjoy the video below, which was made by Mark Fleeson on the Holy Island of Lindisfarne and features music from a new recording by Dave Bainbridge (co-founder of IONA) & myself, called 'Life Journey'. Also, do visit Mark & Mary's website at Lindisfarne Scriptorium and discover more on this project and also what amazing creativity is taking place on Holy Island today.
Thanks for visiting, David
