Professional pianist and composer
Paul is professionally qualified with a degree in music from the university of Edinburgh (B. Mus) and 14 years’ experience of teaching music and advising music teachers nationally.
His repertoire ranges from classical to jazz, musicals, film, dance, and contemporary pop. Paul also composes music and improvises. His touch is quite unique and while he has classical precision from his training, when it comes to interpreting jazz and light music, Paul has a superb talent to deliver ravishing performances in every style with a fantastic natural feel. Just check out some of the testimonials.
To get the best out of Paul, and for sheer ambience and visual impact, book a venue that has a quality grand piano on site which shows the venue takes music seriously. But if there is no piano, Paul can bring a mobile digital piano.
If you want a touch of class to make your event stand out, book Paul to add that extra special ingredient.
Dressed in tuxedo (or more casual if you prefer) - he presents as immaculately as his piano playing.
Paul is a musician of the highest calibre; in both his accompanying skills and solo playing he demonstrates immense musicianship and technical ability. I was fortunate to have Paul as my accompanist in the BBC Young Musician of the Year competition national semi-finals, a role which he undertook with great success. Not only is Paul unique in his ability to convey profound musical interpretation, he is a pleasure to work with.
