Charlie was Head Boy at Junior King’s in 2010 when he played rugby in the JKS U11 National Champion school rugby team at Twickenham. He was a keen musician playing the trumpet and singing in the school choir. During the Remembrance Service he played the Last Post and it was his musical experience while at the Junior School that led him to become a Music Scholar at The King’s School. As he progressed through the school he left his rugby playing and trumpet behind to concentrate on the guitar and composition, along with singing a wide repertoire of musical styles in a number of the school’s choirs. He performed Sinatra’s You Make Feel So Young with the BBC Big Band while at the senior school and is now studying rock guitar and composition at The Royal Northern College of Music. He has formed his own band, Silvette, and he tours performing his own music. He has recently completed the score for a feature film Marriage, and he is looking forward to a varied future in the music business.
