Growing up in Bristol, Milo first trained classically on clarinet, moving on to alto saxophone.
Throughout his education he took opportunities to perform in a variety of styles from orchestral and chamber music at St George’s, to more popular styles in venues like the Colston Hall and Glastonbury Festival, through to functions with his own quintet, The Milo Fox Project, at numerous venues across Bristol.
At the age of 13 he travelled to London weekly to play with National Youth Jazz Orchestra’s second band where he honed his big band playing. Studying at Bristol Cathedral Choir School, a music specialist school, he also had the opportunity to play in a wide range of performances from small group renditions of Wayne Shorter tunes through to Glazunov’s saxophone concerto with the school’s string orchestra.
Moving to London in 2016 to study Physics at Queen Mary University of London, Milo joined Julian Joseph’s Academy through which he has performed at Pizza Express on Dean Street, the Barbican, and the Royal Festival Hall with Trevor Watkis and Byron Wallen.
He also plays alongside current Trinity students at gigs and functions as well as having performed with Nubya Garcia in the Barbican Foyer.
Along with teaching at World Heart Beat Music Academy, he is also interning as an acoustician at a theatre consultancy.

Best Musical Advice
Find the right way of learning for you. If you’ve got strong ears try and learn from recordings – if words are your thing try to focus on the lyricism in your playing, and telling a story. If numbers appeal more, try and apply that in your approach to rhythms, or relative notes and chords.
