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 church organ every Sunday

Most recently, I have been immersed in the world of sound therapy, and I am undertaking a Professional Diploma in Sound Arts Therapy at the British Academy of Sound Therapy.

CASE STUDIES
THERAPEUTIC SOUND SESSION - Literal Soundscape
17 May 2024, 6-8 PM, Clarendon Hotel Blackheath, SE3 0RW

Soundscape is a piece of art in sound. In this session we will work with an abstract piece of art which we will be literally translating into sound. The group will work together and collectively decide on how the soundscape will progress, choose the instruments to express different shapes and colours, write a simple score and then perform the soundscape together at the end. The therapeutic process here is in communication, social interaction, creativity, being in the present moment, and having fun!
