About Me

I am a pianist based in Bromsgrove, Worcestershire and I aim to create and deliver a highly memorable, professional and above all enjoyable live music experience for you. 

 

Currently 20 years old, I have been playing the piano since I was a child. At present I am working towards a Grade 8 qualification. After studying Music (Technology and Composition) at both Worcester College and the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts, I have now decided to embark on an exciting venture as a professional pianist.

For a number of years I have studied and self-taught a range of different styles from contemporary to blues to jazz. In my spare time I also enjoy writing and composing my own music. I like to improvise and give popular pieces my own fresh take and unique spin. This, plus a genuine love for playing and performing music, means I can shape and fit my service to your own individual needs.  

I have previously played at venues including the Guildhall in Worcester for the 'Love Worcester Heritage Week' event. Also at the Artrix in Bromsgrove for their Valentines Day 'Afternoon Tea'My 'Space Set' (video shown below) featured on live internet radio station Astro Radio, hosted by Pete Williamson (BBC Radio Shropshire, Solarsphere Events) showcasing music from David Bowie, Elton John and John Williams.

A FEW INTRODUCTORY VIDEOS

This short video shows excerpts of pieces taken from my standard setlist for weddings & parties. You can view the full video on YouTube here.

My 'Golden Oldies' set shows styles of blues, rock and roll and pop music from the 30s through to the 50s performed by the likes of Elvis Presley, Doris Day, Glenn Miller and more...

The 'Space Set' is a concert recital I was hired to perform at the Artrix Theatre in Bromsgrove for 'National Space Day'. Unfortunately, the event was cancelled due to Covid-19. This 50 minute virtual performance shows a variety of styles and includes examples of classical and contemporary music from David Bowie and Elton John to Gustav Holst and John Williams.

This minute long piece contains excerpts from a longer improvised recording session on the grand piano at Huntingdon Hall in Worcester - offering another small taster of my style of playing.

I would also like to thank the team at Vale Pianos at Pershore, Worcestershire for their support!
