After graduating from the University of Glasgow with a degree in Music in 2013 and completing his postgraduate studies with Professors Alasdair Mitchell and Garry Walker at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Leon became an Associate Musician of the Royal Scottish National Orchestra. As part of his musical education, Leon has enjoyed the opportunity to work with some of Scotland's most prolific orchesras including the RSNO, the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and the Scottish Chamber Orchestra.
Leon has been heavily involved in the amateur and youth scene across Scotland and the UK. Apart from Paisley Sinfonia, notable engagements include the Highland Regional Youth Orchestra, the City of Carlisle Orchestra, Glasgow Orchestral Society and Perth Community Orchestra.
Having been brought up as a singer, Leon also enjoys frequent choral conducting opportunities, most notably as the Lanfine Conducting Scholar of the University of Glasgow Chapel Choir where he enjoys frequent performances in a wide repertoire.
