music makes life make sense

I’m a pianist, singer, composer, piano teacher and singing teacher based in London SW6 – Fulham, near Hammersmith.

I am devoted to making music a meaningful, powerful and magical experience, unearthing the joy, solace and freedom that it can bring.

Making music is like going for a walk in nature: I discover beauty, I don’t devise it!

WHAT I OFFER


Performing & recording artist

As an artist, I work to create rich, beautiful and powerful and accessible piano music, and sometimes I sing too. I trained as a classical musician at the Royal Northern College of Music but am also a fluent improviser. My musical style is intelligible, very defined tonally and rhythmically and emotionally connected.


Piano teacher

I have been teaching piano for over 20 years. My piano lessons follow a clear, highly innovative approach which makes learning to play the piano a fascinating, inspiring and enjoyable experience. I have my own unique and radical piano method which develops real practical musicianship skills: the art of piano improvisation, fluent sight-reading and playing by ear. I teach classical, jazz and pop styles.


Singing teacher

I have been giving singing lessons for over 20 years. I teach using a clear vocal model which enables students to unlock their true voice and sing naturally, with ease. I also teach singers musicianship and performance skills which when combined with a strong singing technique makes you a great singer with a powerful, expressive voice.


Composer and producer

I compose and produce acoustic and electronic music in a wide range of styles for film and TV or any other purpose. I also compose ensemble music for schools. I can create clear, professional scores and parts. I work quickly, can follow a brief easily and welcome commissions.


Versatile musician: pianist, singer, keyboards, programming

I’m a fluent improviser, sight-reader and sight-singer, experienced and accomplished in various roles: session musician – keyboards, programming and vocalist; and a accompanist/coach for singers and instrumentalists.
