I am an experienced multi-instrumentalist, teacher, composer and specialist of Jazz Piano. I held a residency at Park House on the Sandringham Estate in Norfolk and since graduating from Birmingham Conservatoire, have been in several bands performing on the Craig Charles Funk & Soul Show for 6 Music and festivals in Norway and Russia. I have played high prestigious events such as a private house warming party for the boss of IBM, an exclusive corporate shopping event at Selfridges, Red or Dead fashion designer Wayne Hemingway's 25th wedding anniversary and many contracts for Disney Cruise Line. I have also had a lot of teaching experience with both adults and children alike of all ages and abilities. My extensive knowledge of music from classical to modern pop tunes means I can make learning fun and teach a variety of styles.
