Steinway Day forEpta 5 Nov

Such fun teaching adults for Epta at Steinways in London. Its a perfomance oppotunity for adults and students and Steinways generously let Epta use their big meeting room. The day was held with jointly by Kathryn Page and me, and introduced by Melvyn Cooper. As a special treat after the morning session we managed to play all together again in the Hall of Fame – our hold favourite, the Bach/Gounod Ave Maria

Sat 9 July, DCO Orchestra concert in Wirksworth

2016-07-09 DCO concert0001

An exciting and challenging programme full of cracking tunes. I will join the orchestra playing orchestral piano (being somewhere near the horns and percussion!) in the Stravinsky and Rachmaninov and my biggest challenge is to COUNT! I am not used to that at all and will be on tenterhooks!Do come along – sure you can buy tickets on the night on the door. And remember, its the Royal Oak afterwards, always part of a good DCO concert…
