Piano and Organ
I am interested in performing solo and accompanying instrumentalists and singers.
I have a broad repertoire of styles, mainly classical, and enjoy the challenge of learning new works.
I am also busily involved as a church musician under the artistic pseudonym Russell Lucas.
The organ is a curious beast to master, with something of an anorak following, but can be very rewarding.
For range of colour it is brilliant.
For range of expression the piano wins hands down!
After six years as organist/DM at a church in Brixham,
I shall soon be available for any evangelical church that requires an organist or musician in the Torbay area.
