Orchestra UnitedChannel 4 LogoPlease take a look at the videos below highlighting my coaching on the Channel 4 documentary Orchestra United.


It was amazing experience to work with and coach a group of young musicians forming the Halle Youth Orchestra as they progressed on their journey to their final concert at the Bridgewater Hall, Manchester. They overcame doubt, fear and anxiety to play beautiful music and participate in an experience they will never forget. As the orchestra coach I began by delivering a two-day leadership workshop and went on to facilitate team building and one-to-one coaching support for all the players including James Lowe the conductor. This entire process was televised was made into a series aired on Channel 4 Television, UK in 2010.
