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
