Hello. I am delighted to say that I have just moved to Wellington from England where I have thirty years experience of teaching, and of composing serious classical music for symphony orchestras, chamber groups, voice, choirs and solo instruments etc.
As a concert pianist I perform my own compositions wherever possible and enjoy accompanying various instrumentalists particularly in the works of Shostakovich and Prokofiev.
During my interesting and varied career I have experienced many different musical worlds and have been a professional keyboard player on board cruise ships, musical director, session player, guitarist and vocalist with various rock bands (prog rock, pop and covers), a bazouki player and a singer with a medieval ensemble.
I enjoy all aspects of ‘sound’ exploration and enjoy teaching enthusiastic students. I am happy to help students who wish to to work towards exams.
I will be teaching piano at RATA Academy as from February next year, 2017
I can offer – one to one help and attention in developing composition and instrumental skills. Student centered learning and pace. Development of music notation reading and writing skills.
Fun and enjoyment from sharing and discovering music together.
I look forward to hearing from you.
