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!
