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