Accompaniment

One of my passions is in Accompanying a variety of musicians and ensembles. As part of my degree and training at Chetham's I studied this with a range of instruments and vocalists.

 

Part of my job is to work as a rehearsal pianist for the Lydian Singers of Knutsford with highly regarded conductor John Naylor. I also play regularly for concerts on piano and violin in the choir's orchestra/ensemble.

 

I also play for The Phoenix Singers of Leek with Ashley Thompson, who has also composed many works of his own. We have recently played on BBC Stoke and on the Staffordshire News.
