Sam's undergraduate degree was taken in Organ Performance at the renowned Birmingham Conservatoire, where his teachers included Henry Fairs, Daniel Moult and David Saint. He then embarked on postgraduate studies at the Royal Northern College of Music Manchester where he won the prestigious Organ Recital Prize in 2009.

At its conclusion he took the short journey along Hope Street to become Organ Scholar at Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral, the first person to hold both positions successively.
