Harry was fortunate enough to gain vast amounts of musical exposure as a child. He first started playing the trumpet when he was 8 years old, and quickly found a passion for music joining a plethora of ensembles throughout his school life and then at the Royal Northern College of Music between 16-18 years old. During this time, Harry had worked with Motown legend, Kim Wester, who is known for her work with Marvin Gaye. Harry also was fortunate enough to have been a winner of the BBC 2014 'Young composers' competition'; this experience involved Harry's compositions being performed on the radio by musicians from the 'BBC Symphony Orchestra' as part of the proms.
Harry currently studies at the Guildhall school of music and drama with the country's finest educators and trumpet teachers such as Percy Pursglove, Quentin Collins and Robbie Robson.
