I was born in London and learnt piano and cello as a boy. I studied biochemistry at UCL and have always enjoyed the heady combination of maths, science and music. My career has been a bit of both, but is now firmly on the music side.
I have been teaching music for many years, and have a huge number of exam successes with my students. Many of my pupils have gone on to careers in music, while the others have their music as a lifelong hobby. I am very proud of all of them, and I continue to get a great deal out of this work. I believe that lessons should be fun, but making good progress is part of the fun, so I’ll expect you to practise!
I enjoy playing piano, and love to help celebrate a special occasion with background or “cocktail” piano, whether soft classical, romantic, jazz or blues. Please get in touch if you’d like to book me to play at your event.
I also accompany instrumentalists. Accompanying is a particular skill, and one which I have thoroughly enjoyed honing to a high level. I’m available to accompany in exams, concerts or any performance.
