Hello and Welcome
I am a down-to-earth, classically trained pianist living in London. I enjoy collaborative work with singers and instrumentalists. My professional work encompasses recitals, private events, recording sessions, cruise ship engagements, interactive therapeutic concerts, meditative sound concerts, hotel work, and I play the organ every Sunday.
Most recently, I have been immersed in world of sound therapy, and I am undertaking a professional diploma in Sound Arts Therapy at the British Academy of Sound Therapy.
