Sam studied at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama with generous scholarships from the Tobacco Pipe Makers and Tobacco Trade Benevolent Fund, the Leverhulme Trust, Wolfson Foundation and the Guildhall School Trust. He was awarded MMus with Distinction in 2012, following his BMus with First-Class Honours the year before.


Since graduating, Sam has pursued a performing career which has taken him across the UK and Europe, both as a soloist and ensemble member.  Sam has had the great pleasure of working alongside many of the country’s finest musicians, being conducted by Sir Antonio Pappano, Sir John Eliot Gardiner and the late Sir Colin Davis, with orchestras such as the Philharmonia and Royal Philharmonic.  He has worked with eminent performers such as trumpeter Crispian Steele-Perkins, saxophonist John Harle and Soft Cell singer Marc Almond.  Recordings with English Symphony Orchestra have featured in the Classical Charts Top 10 and achieved tens of thousands of views on YouTube, while recent solo performances have included the London Handel Festival and Festival de la Musique Sacrée.


Alongside his work as a performer, Sam enjoys instrumental teaching and has also published a Trumpet Sight-Reading tutor with John Kember for Schott Music Publications.
