In years gone by Francis spent many hours with a violin under his chin. He then went on to study music at King’s College London and The Royal Academy of Music. With extensive experience in orchestral playing and chamber music and playing in numerous bands in recent years — at barn dances, in cinemas, aircraft hangers, muddy fields, on theatre stages, and at a variety of venues across his known world — Francis has come to love all types of music and improvisation.
He wants to encourage all people to have fun by expressing themselves when making music with others. Francis believes that live music is one of the greatest things in life and that is why he is a music educator.
