Philip began studying the violin aged six. Two years later, he was offered a place at Chetham's School of Music in Manchester, at the time becoming their youngest pupil.

Philip was soon performing around the UK, and at 13 played for the first time as a soloist with an orchestra. He has performed as a member of several ensembles and orchestras, in venues including the Bridgewater Hall, the Royal Festival Hall, Manchester Cathedral, Chester Cathedral and St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle.

These experiences led Philip to dream of setting up his own orchestra, so that he would be able to perform beautiful live music to audiences around the country. This year, that dream is finally coming true, beginning at Chester's historic Town Hall. (Tickets are available here.)

Philip plays a violin made in the year 1750, by a German luthier named Sebastian Klotz. Alongside his passion for the violin, he also enjoys playing the piano.


Beyond music, Philip is a keen filmmaker. His short film Pong tells the story of a ping pong ball that comes to life and goes on an adventure. The film won a BBC competition and was awarded an official 'U' certificate. Watch it here.
