In the role of accompanist, I have played for numerous recitals & auditions.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
Yes - up to date as of September 2013.
- Do you belong to any professional organisations?
I have had the good fortune to have Sam (Messer) as my piano teacher for a few years now. As an adult learner, taking up the piano in my middle age, I was not sure how I would get on, but Sam showed me that new skills could be learned and an instrument that I had always loved mastered to some extent! Sam makes the lessons fun, but always with a structured and methodical approach underpinning his teaching, so I get the benefit of playing and understanding the theory behind both the piano and music more generally. I would heartily recommend him as a teacher and thoroughly enjoy my weekly lessons.
