Originally from Gloucestershire, Felix began playing the cello at the age of three. At nine, he joined the Royal Academy of Music Primary Department and progressed to the Junior Royal Academy.


In 2011, he began studying with Guy Johnston and in 2013 won both the South Cotswold Rotary Club 'Young Musician Of The Year' and the Norma Simpson Lower Strings Prize at the Junior Royal Academy Of Music. Later in 2013, he was a recipient of a 'Future Talent' award which gave him the opportunity to perform alongside Guy Johnston at St. Georges, Hanover Square in London.

He continued his studies in 2014 with Bruno Schrecker, former cellist of the Allegri String Quartet and pupil of Pablo Casals.

In 2016, he was awarded a scholarship for a year of postgraduate study at the Interlochen Center for the Arts in Michigan U.S.A., where he studied both classical and jazz cello with Crispin Campbell.

Returning to the U.K. in 2017 he began a Bachelor of Music degree studying with Hannah Roberts at the Royal Northern College of Music, graduating in 2021. In his first year at the Royal Northern College of Music, Felix became a founding member of the Elmore String Quartet and is now a Junior Fellow in chamber music with the Elmore Quartet at the RNCM.

He is also artistic director of the Elmore Chamber Music Festival in Gloucestershire.
