I began picking tunes out by ear at an early age - not precocious, just curious - and this has fuelled my playing and keyboard skills ever since.  Despite several attempts I never stuck very well to formal tuition, but flourished through lessons in jazz piano and learning to read orchestral scores at the keyboard.  My technique was brought into some sort of order through studying piano as my second instrument whilst at Trinity College of Music, and this continuing improvement provides me with great pleasure to this day.

Current repertoire includes solo works by Malcolm Arnold, Bach, Chopin, Gerswhin, Haydn, Lyadov, Mendelssohn, Mozart and Schumann.  I also enjoy improvising and extemporisation, and playing jazz standards and songs from the 'evergreen' composers such as Irving Berlin, Duke Ellington, George Gershwin, Cole Porter and Fats Waller.

My various gigs to date have included regular jobs as a hotel bar pianist and church organist, as well as occasional appearances in the theatre pit.
