I am a freelance musician, working alternately as a teacher, producer and international performer. Classically trained with composers John Tavener and John Rutter amongst others, I am skilled in advanced harmony and counterpoint as well as piano.

I am currently teaching privately and in schools. My performing is in various rock bands and in the sure I have worked as arranger and Musical Director with such acts as Status Quo, Sneaker Pimps and The Mighty Wah.

Whilst I am more than happy to teach advanced rock and pop keyboard playing, as a teacher I value the rudiments and notational method of learning as I feel it forms a good grounding for any style of music the student wishes to pursue. I adapt my teaching style to the age of the pupil and have taught all ages from 6 to adult. I prepare them for ABRSM exams but also like to include elements of playing by ear, improvisation and general chord work in my lessons
