Piano & 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.

For the past 6 years I have been busily involved as a church musician in and around Brixham, South Devon. For churches requiring an organist or pianist in Torbay – especially those with a modern outlook – I may be available (for expenses only) but I am not seeking a position.

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! At home I am fortunate to have an amazing nearly-new Grotrian-Steinweg piano.
