UNIVERSITY NEWS LAST UPDATED : 18 MAY
I have some news! The Royal College of Music (RCM) has offered me the position of Head of Brass. This has been a tricky decision, as I hope you are all aware of how much I love RBC, and how deep my respect is for all your simply amazing dedication and brilliance.
It is, however, an opportunity that I can’t miss, particularly because of the positive impact the move will have on my work-life balance. Commuting from south-west London has taken its toll somewhat on me and general family life in terms of tiredness! I have, therefore, accepted the offer, and will be starting at the RCM as Head of Brass in September 2023.
I’m looking forward to having plenty of opportunities to catch up over tea, beer or weird hash brown cones in Boult’s over the next few weeks.
I just wanted to put on record my gratitude to you all: the last five years has been the greatest privilege of my working life. The commitment, brilliance, and all-round loveliness of RBC staff across all roles has been unforgettably inspiring.
I look forward to keeping in touch with everyone.
