Tell me about your qualifications.
I was fortunate enough to study with Dame Fanny Waterman for my teenage years, during which time I gained my ARCM (Perfromers) Diploma. This was followed by 5 years’ study at the Royal Northern College of Music (the final postgraduate year specialising in accompaniment). I gained GMUSRNCM in 1985, followed by PGDipRNCM in 1986

My first job was at Chetham’s School of Music, as a staff accompanist, playing for instrumentalists in concerts and and in both local and national competitions, Moves took me to full-time teaching posts in Sussex and the North of Scotland before returning to my native North Yorkshire, all the time pursuing a freelance career as teacher and performer.

I am currently Head of Keyboard at Bootham School in York
