|Neil Carter (musician)|
Neil Andrew Carter (11 May 1958) is a musician who has worked in diverse genres throughout his 35 year career. Classically trained, he became a professional rock musician at the age of 17 and initially had his first 'mainstream' experience with singer-songwriter Gilbert O'Sullivan. He subsequently played guitar and keyboard for the hard rock band UFO, blues rock guitarist Gary Moore, and Wild Horses. He is credited for co-writing a number of Gary Moore's songs including the worldwide hit, 'Empty Rooms'. At 30 he left the rock world and has in recent years developed a different career as both teacher of woodwind (saxophone and clarinet) and as an ABRSM examiner. 2010 saw a return to rock with Gary Moore, playing festivals across Europe and a tour of the Ukraine and Russia. Future tours and a Celtic rock album were to follow but this was curtailed by the death of Gary Moore in February 2011. He also plays other instruments including the flute and bassoon.
Brighton College career
He currently teaches at Brighton College, holding the position of "Head of Woodwind and Brass". He teaches one-on-one lessons on clarinet and saxophone. Neil is the conductor of the school Concert Band, and the school Saxophone Ensemble and leads the School's Swing Band.
