As an undergraduate I studied Music at Anglia Ruskin University specialising in piano performance, composition and electronic music. I also trained as a music therapist at UCL.
I have given classical recitals and was awarded 95/100 for my LTCL piano diploma.
I played for dance classes in Cambridge 78 - 88 and have worked as a rehearsal pianist for countless musicals, notably Kiss Me Kate and Peter Pan.
I also have my own modern jazz quintet and have accompanied many jazz and rock singers.
I currently run a Community Music Project for people with enduring mental health problems. We are a performing band called The Recovered Mkii.
I have a passion for the American Songbook and for Contemporary and Traditional Musical Theatre.
