music is life





I’m a pianist, singer, composer, piano teacher and singing teacher based in London SW6 – Fulham, near Hammersmith. I’m always looking for ways to create the magic, solace and empowerment that only music can provide.

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

Performing and recording artist

As an improvising artist, I dig deep to create accessible, beautiful and powerful music. My musical flavours combine smooth jazz, soul, jazz funk, lounge & classical salon music. My two greatest influences are probably Stevie Wonder and Chopin!

Piano lessons

I’m a very experienced piano teacher and aim to provide inspiring lessons using a highly innovative approach to learning piano. My focus is to empower students by unblocking their natural musicianship skills to generate real musical fluency.

Singing lessons

After many years of teaching singing, I’ve developed a unique and comprehensive model that I use to help students rapidly unlock their natural, expressive voices.

Composition and theory lessons

My method of teaching composition and theory is based on keyboard musicianship. This approach generates technical facility and unlocks powerful creativity.

Vocal coach – répétiteur

I’m an experienced accompanist and I enjoy giving inspirational coaching to help singers find deeper confidence, musical assurance and expressive magic in their vocal performances.
