George graduated with distinction from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in 2021 on the Guildhall Advanced Instrumental Studies postgraduate programme (saxophone), as well as being awarded the Concert Recital Diploma for excellence in his Final Recital. Tutors whilst at The Guildhall included John Harle, Mick Foster, and Nick Moss. Prior to Guildhall, he studied Music at Goldsmiths College, University of London, where he was awarded first class honours, under the tutelage of Paul Bartholomew, Mick Foster, Ian Gardiner, and Jeremy Peyton-Jones. 


After his studies, he returned to Guildhall as a Junior Fellow, assisting John Harle as arranger/orchestrator for the interdepartmental Bauhaus Band, where he contributed several arrangements and orchestrations for the Bauhaus Festival 2022.


George is a portfolio musician, and has a varied career as a multi-instrumentalist, composer, arranger, and teacher. He plays all variants of saxophones, clarinets, and flutes, and works regularly in the fields of musical theatre, big band, jazz, classical, and contemporary music - and enjoys collaborating and playing in a wide variety of musical environments, having played in London's West End, Barbican Concert Hall, The Royal Festival Hall, The Royal Albert Hall, and all the major regional theatres in the UK. An active session musician, he has performed on BBC Radio 3, and he also has the ability to record remotely in this post Covid world, with good quality equipment.


As a composer and arranger, George has been commissioned by groups such as the Delta Saxophone Quartet (now in their celebratory 40th year). Some of George's compositions and arrangements are published by Samek Music, Alea Publishing, Saxtet Publications, and self-published on Sheet music plus. He is as passionate about original music composition as he is about arranging existing music, he particularly enjoys using vocal music as a tool for enabling vocal and lyrical woodwind playing. 

A passionate teacher, George teaches all ages and all abilities, favouring a more individual and holistic approach to each and every 'student' in which the overall development in confidence, curiosity, and creativity are paramount - rather than simply ‘learning the dots’.
