This was an audio themed school event at Queen Victoria Primary School
Sedgley. The pupils were introduced to music technology and the principles of
music and sound creation. I hold a current CRB certificate and a clean driving
license.

Through this the use of Microsoft project was heavily utilised for Gantt and
progress chart creation.
Business organisational skills must also be noted for meeting customer
requirements and deadlines.

Interests: Music, audio recording and production are my greatest interests with the
ownership of a small high performance home studio environment with a large
array of instruments and equipment. I also enjoy watching films and playing
computer games and spending time with my friends and relatives.

I have also worked and contributed music and audio for the charity SP8 of the
Art. While supporting pupils at Teagues Bridge School Telford, my work has
been used in both literacy and creative arts events.
