I have helped on the Guildhall Jazz Summer School and worked with young musicians to perform at Barbican Centre alongside the Lincoln Centre Jazz Orchestra I record regularly for Decca records as a classical and pop pianist. I also work around London within a variety of ensembles at venues such as Ronnie Scott's, the Vortex, Camden Jazz Cafe, and Pizza Express Jazz Cafe.

Another student I've been teaching is an adult pupil called Barry, preparing him for his ABRSM piano diploma currently awaiting results.

I've known Alex for a long time, we studied at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama together. He has an eclectic taste in music, and is a versatile musician (he plays piano, accordion, harmonium, composes, records and sings). He is a great accompanist too, he has helped me with lots of exams at music college. He's also a lovely guy! Highly recommend
