QUALIFICATIONS AND EXPERIENCE
I have 49 years experience as a Choir Director and Organist I am currently Director of Music at Sawbridgeworth Parish Church (Great St Mary's) and Canning Town Catholic Church (St Margaret's).
I also have many years of experience as a composer/arranger and conductor. Apart from church music, I also work as a cocktail/jazz pianist, having played at such venues as The Ritz, The Cafe Royal, The Dorchester, The Park Lane Hotel, The Banqueting Hall Whitehall, Hampton Court Palace etc etc.
I have been Musical Director of a number of local pantomimes and large scale shows such as Hello Dolly!
I live in Loughton Essex and am able to travel to anywhere in the UK time, permitting.
AVAILABILITY DURING THE WEEK
I am generally tied up on Thursday/Friday nights and Sundays but available all other times during the week (daytimes and evenings).
I am able to sight read most music (any style) and can play from either full music or chord symbols.
If a venue has no reliable musical instrument, I can provide my own quality portable digital organ, or my full-sized digital organ.
I have a contact list of very fine professional singers and can arrange a soloist or choir to sing at fairly short notice.
I am always reliable and once a booking has been agreed, I will not sub-contract to another musician to do the actual playing.
