Originally honing my skills on the British jazz scene and playing residencies in bars and clubs, I then went on to tour the world for several years playing on cruise ships, hotels, festivals and musical theatre productions. I now live in London playing regularly at Ronnie Scotts, The Vortex and other jazz venues across the UK, and have recently completed a master’s at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.

I have also worked extensively in musical theatre, most recently as musical director for ‘Jersey Boys’, and on the first US national tour of ‘Summer: the Donna Summer Musical’. Check out the 'multimedia' tab above for a video from my stint playing and directing 'After Midnight', a show set to the music of the Duke Ellington Big Band.

Well versed in a variety of styles, I teach jazz, funk, blues, R&B, pop, latin, rock and classical music. My teaching method is to focus on whatever type of music the student loves most, and to build from there. I believe that many people give up their dream of playing an instrument simply because they aren’t inspired enough, so my goal is to instil a love for music, whatever that means personally for each individual student.

Everyone learns differently and has their own pace and rhythm. I have some students who like to have a regular weekly or biweekly lesson, and others who just get in touch once in a while when they have digested the previous lesson and feel ready to build on it. Whatever the case, I am very flexible and we can figure out what works best for you.

PLEASE NOTE: I currently teach online only, using Synthesia software which allows you to see the exact keys I'm playing.
