QUALIFICATIONS AND EXPERIENCE 
Experienced organist, accompanist, repetiteur and pianist. I studied music with Peter Hill at the University of Sheffield where I graduated with first class honours in 1988, before completing my postgraduate studies (MMus) at Kings College London.

After many years as a part-time freelance musician, I took up the post of Organist in Residence at St Elizabeth of Portugal, Richmond upon Thames, in September 2015. The church has an excellent three manual Compton Hill organ, and a smaller instrument for rehearsals, chamber music and services during Advent and Lent. I also rehearse and perform with a number of auditioned and community choirs, including Cantandi Camerati and the choir of Strawberry Hill House, Teddington.
GEOGRAPHICAL AVAILABILITY
I am based in Hampton Court, and so have very quick and easy access to venues in Richmond, Kew, Teddington, Kingston and Surbiton. Having held organist posts in both the Church of England and Catholic Church, I am familiar with the liturgy, traditions and repertoire of both faiths.

I am happy to travel within Middlesex, Surrey and Central London, and have, since October 2015, been the organist at recitals and choral events held in St Mary's Hampton, St Mary's Twickenham, St Margaret of Scotland in Richmond, St Francis de Sales Teddington, All Saints Esher and St Pancras Parish Church NW1.
AVAILABILITY DURING THE WEEK
I am currently available for rehearsals and events after 6.00 pm on weekdays, except for Wednesday (when I lead a choir rehearsal at St Elizabeth's Richmond). I am available to play for weddings and other events throughout Saturday, and on Sunday after 13:00.
OTHER INFORMATION
I enjoy accompanying all forms of classical music, from early choral music to opera and 20th century chamber music. I also offer tuition in performance coaching (with accompaniment) and musicianship (aural) tuition for students studying for ABRSM and Trinity examinations.

The easiest and quickest way to contact me - with the guarantee of a fast response - is via text on 07860 472398.
