music is life





I’m a pianist, singer, composer, piano teacher and singing teacher based in London SW6 – Fulham, near Hammersmith. I’m devoted to the making the experience of music ever more powerful, unearthing the magic, solace and freedom that it brings.

When I improvise, it’s like going for a walk in nature: I discover beauty, I don’t devise it!

Performing and recording artist

As an improvising artist, I dig deep to create accessible, beautiful and powerful music. My musical flavours combine jazz, classical and soul music. My greatest influences are probably Stevie Wonder, Chopin, Herbie Hancock and Mozart!

Piano lessons

I’m an experienced and unorthodox piano teacher. My job is to provide inspiration with a clear and disciplined learning path. This unique method, designed to generate real musical fluency on the keys, allows students to discover their natural inner musicianship.

Singing lessons

After many years of teaching singing, I’ve now use a simple and comprehensive vocal model to enable students to unlock their true, natural voice. When combined with powerful musicianship and expression, this creates a great singer.

Composition and theory lessons

My composition and theory teaching is based on a deep understanding of the principles of rhythm, structure and tonality. This approach generates facility and unlocks powerful creativity.

Vocal coach – répétiteur

I have many years’ experience accompanying singers and providing inspirational coaching to help them find deeper confidence, musical assurance and expressive magic in their vocal performances.
