Royal Schools of Music (England) level 8 with distinction. A great deal of performance and competition.
I started learning piano when I was seven in the days when it was quite a brutal affair. I competed for the first time after nine months of tuition followed by many more competitions and examinations culminating in the Leeds junior competition when I was seventeen. I have played ever since and more recently in ensemble work. A few years ago I stepped in as repetiteur to prepare a soprano friend of mine for a recital of Rossini songs for Dame Joan Sutherland.
