Biography

I can remember being given my first musical instrument when I was 5 years old, a second-hand xylophone, and since then Iíve never been without. Iíve graduated from the xylophone since then and I now have 20+ years of experience as a pianist, keyboardist, percussionist and music technologist. Iím Ross Wall and I live on the music that I make.

I grew up around the big venues in London and Essex and Iím now playing the dream venues of my youth. Iíve been studying the art and craft of music for as long as I can remember and itís manifested in a Bachelorís degree in Jazz, a Qualified Teacher Status and a Grade 8 in Piano.

I have had commercial music releases through Prestige Elite Records and toured with X-Factor winner Joe McElderry last year. Iím also a regular pianist for Moni Tivony and Jamie Johnson, both of The Voice fame, along with good friend Kelli Leigh Ė who has recently topped the charts with Duke Dumont.

I play with some of the countryís leading function bands and often line up alongside Moni, Jamie and Kelli. Some of our most recent performances have been at the 5-star trinity of The Mayfair, the The Dorchester and The Park Lane.

Along with being the keyboard player for Joe McElderryís 60-date tour which ended in June 2014, I am also the Musical Director for the tour and will continue onto his next tour throughout this year and 2015.

When Iím not in London performing, on tour directing or in my studio recording Ė Iím lucky enough to be asked to play in musical theatre and on international cruise ships. I believe itís my exposure to such a variety of talented artists and my work within such a range of venues that makes me the musician I am today.


I was the first amongst my musical circle of friends to break into the esteemed Grade 8 in Piano, back when I was 17. I already knew by this time that I wanted to make music my life and my living Ė so shortly afterwards and I was taking the journey north to study at the competitive and oversubscribed Leeds College of Music. I graduated in 2004 with a Bachelorís degree (w/Hons) in Jazz Studies and quickly went onto finish my PGCE and become a Qualified Teacher of Music.

Between 2011 and 2014 I was a classroom Music Teacher for children at Ursuline School in Newham and King Solomon High School in Redbridge. Whilst I no longer teach in schools, I offer Private Tuition for fantastic prices and excellent results.

I can coach beginners with who donít know their ivory from their ebony, or I can help talented pianists climb that final ladder to reach the advanced grade that theyíre looking for. Iíve taught children who can just about talk, adults taking up a new hobby and pensioners looking for a new talent. When youíre teaching music, itís all about passion Ė nothing else comes into it.

I also specialise in teaching pianists the basics of Jazz, Improvisation & Composition; taking them through to advanced concepts to allow them to play whenever, wherever, with whatever. Music Theory comes into many of my lessons, from the basics of the stave to intervals and cadences. I can coach and prepare pupils for the trials of Grade Exams and GCSE Exams.
