I am an experienced freelance organist based near High Wycombe in Buckinghamshire. I am available to play for all types of church services including weddings and funerals.

My main career has been in industry, but I have maintained an active interest in music and play both piano and organ to diploma standard. I continue to have organ lessons and I am expanding my repertoire; a sample of this is below.

I have also made some recordings, which you can find HERE

Please contact me if you would like cover for your existing organist, or if you are looking for someone to deputise on a regular basis. I am approachable, friendly and happy to chat through your requirements.
