Notes:

Professional pianist since 2001. Repertoire of several hundred songs and pieces.

Currently pianist/keyboardist in several Kent-based bands, spanning genres including jazz, blues, rock and reggae.

Vastly experienced singer, currently in two choirs: St Stephen's Church Choir and Thanet Chamber Choir. Former member of The Queen's College Chapel Choir, Oxford (2000-2001).

Past solos include 'Libera me' from Faure's Requiem, 'Non timebo' from Purcell's 'Jehova quam multi sunt hostes mei', 'O Isis und Osiris' from Mozart's 'The Magic Flute', and Schubert's 'Liebesbotschaft', among many others.

I can teach classical singers how to approach non-classical genres, and vice versa!

I am also a singer-songwriter with more than two decades of experience, and would be delighted to teach the basics of songwriting. I composed the music for several songs in a new musical about Ada Lovelace.

Although I focus primarily on non-classical genres, I am also more than happy to teach grades 1-5 piano and grades 1-8 singing.
