Despite originally starting out his career in architecture Elliott’s passion for music soon transitioned into a freelance career performing and teaching around London and the South-East. In 2014 he received an Ann Driver Trust Scholarship and in 2015 the Trinity Laban Award to study a two year masters course in performance at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, where he studied clarinet with Michael Whight and Joan Enric Lluna.

Elliott thrives on his interest in chamber music and founded the Waldegrave Ensemble, a flexible ensemble of winds, strings and piano which sets out to bring a wide range of works to communities outside of London. After the success of their performance premiere of Matthew Taylor's Wind Quintet at Blackheath Halls in 2016 the ensemble are now looking forward to recording their first CD featuring all his works for winds in August 2017 due for release later in the year. They are also celebrating the 20th anniversary of the passing of renowned composer Jean Francaix by performing a programme featuring his Wind Quintet no.1 during 2017.

Over the past few years he has had several TV & Film appearances including SkyOne's 'League of their Own' with the Sinfonia Tamesa and as part of the orchestra in the 2011 film 'First Night' featuring Richard E Grant and Sarah Brightman.

His previous solo performances include Aaron Copland's Clarinet Concerto with the Amici Orchestra, Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto with the Waldegrave Ensemble Chamber Orchestra, Mendelssohn's ‘Konzertstucke No. 2’ with the CLIC Sargent Charity Orchestra, Krommer's ‘Clarinet Concerto’ with Richmond Orchestra , and Weber's Clarinet Quintet with the Dorking Philharmonia String Section. His performances have taken him to many prestigious London venues, along with tours across Europe to Germany, Netherlands and Spain.

Elliott plays on a pair of Selmer St. Louis Clarinets and a Selmer Priviledge Bass Clarinet with mouthpieces customized by Ramon Wodkowski.

“Elliott played for my production of West Side Story. He showed outstanding concentration, dedication and skill with the demanding Reed 4 part. He played both Bass Clarinet and Baritone Sax with particular authority and character, really forming a powerful heart to the section. He also has an excellent attitude, and proves a popular colleague.”
