Graham began his musical studies on the piano aged 5 and then began learning the organ aged 11 and the trombone aged 14. On completing his A levels in 2002, Graham studied music at Colchester Institute and gained a BA(Hons) with a 2:1 in July 2005.

From 2006 – 2011 Graham was a Peripatetic Music Teacher for Southampton Music Service, teaching Piano and Keyboard in many different schools across Southampton. Graham now works at Richard Taunton Sixth Form College, Southampton where he teaches piano and trombone, directs the Community Choir and accompanies the College Choir. In addition to this, he has been teaching on the A-level Music programme towards qualified teacher status in the lifelong learning sector. Graham is the musical director of Winchester City Festival Choir and Sarisbury Choral Society, and in September 2015 became the director of music at St James’ Church, West End, where he is responsible for co-ordinating the church choir  and organist team.

Graham also works as a freelance musician, teaching music privately and playing the organ for services at various churches in the area. Graham is  on the music staff for the Hamble Area Youth Band as a conductor and percussion “expert”! In his spare time, Graham can be found at Choral Evensong at a Cathedral or in front of a fairground organ at a steam rally.
