Piano and Organ

Music

I am interested in performing solo and accompanying instrumentalists and singers. I have a broad repertoire of classical styles and enjoy the challenge of learning new works. Currently I am working on Prokofiev’s 7th piano sonata, an ambition from way back.

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.

I am interested in any evangelical church that requires an organist or musician in the Torbay area.
