Throughout his studies at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Mannheim Musikhochschule and the Royal College of Music, Calum showed an affinity towards the marimba, winning his first BBC solo broadcast at the age of 18.  A winner and finalist in many prestigious competitions, Calum was taught and nurtured by international marimbists Jasmin Kolberg and Eric Sammut.

Calum is an active and highly sought-after clinician and educator, holding teaching positions at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and as a visiting professor at several other institutes in the UK.   Truly passionate about music education, Calum challenges the boundaries of classical music, pursuing accessible pathways to ensure that every young person has an equal chance for success.   
 
A pioneer of classical music, Calum’s mission is to address equity and access to a music education, be a voice for LGBTQ+ musicians and introduce audiences to the truly fascinating and magical world that is percussion.
