Since graduating from ACM as ‘Outstanding Student of the Year’, Windsor has performed and/or recorded music with a variety of renowned artists including Blondie (Rock and Roll Hall of Fame), Hugh Cornwell (original guitarist/vocalist of The Stranglers), Paul Martinez (Led Zeppelin, Robert Plant, George Harrison), B.J. Cole (Elton John, Sting, Bjork), Paul Turner (Jamiroquai, Annie Lennox), Fish (founding vocalist/frontman of Marillion), Tony Visconti (David Bowie, T-Rex), Brian Tench (Tina Turner, Kate Bush), Andy Hill (Celine Dion, Vanessa Mae, Bucks Fizz), Terry Barham (Bob Marley) Chris Goulstone (Goldfrapp, Film + TV music composer for Lost, American Pie, WWF etc), Danny Kadar (My Morning Jacket, Cheap Trick), and Andy Todd (Republica, S-Club), Genesis Visible Touch and Dr. John Cooper Clarke.

In the process of doing so, Windsor has appeared on international TV and at many prestigious venues from the UK’s Cavern Club to the Royal Albert Hall.

Windsor’s contributions to music education include being a tutor at ACM’s drum school since 2001 (from the part-time drum school right through to drum course degree level) and at Bath Rhythm Course. He has also created written content for ACM’s courses and Rhythm Magazine. Schedule permitting, Windsor also works as a private tutor.

Recently, Windsor was asked to organise a series of new music classes for young music students to give them the experience of performing music in a band, and Band Academy at Box Hill School was born. It’s a bit like the movie “”School of Rock.””

Windsor currently endorses Zildjian cymbals.
