Christopher studied music with education at the University of Aberdeen. He is currently an alumni member of The National Youth Choir of Scotland and Edinburgh Festival Chorus. He currently works as a Music Education Producer/Programmer with the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall and as a freelance choral conductor. Christopher is registered with the General Teaching Council of Scotland and previously taught music in Scottish secondary and primary schools. In 09/10 he undertook research which analysed the benefits of teaching the Kodaly approach in primary schools to better aid the transition to secondary music education. He is delighted to be awarded a Winston Churchill Memorial Trust Fellowship, which has been partnered by the Finzi Trust. Over 2016-17 Christopher will be traveling to the USA and Australia to research concert hall community engagement under the working title of “Realising the Potential: The role of the International Concert Hall within the local community”.
