He has extensive experience in initial teacher education and has taught music to graduates preparing to teach in both primary and secondary schools.
He was on the editorial board of the British Journal of Music Education between 2013 to 2015 and in 2014-2015 was the programme supervisor for Teach Through Music, a professional development programme funded by the Department for Education and the London Schools Excellence Fund aimed at developing music teaching at Key Stage 3 in London schools.
