As a skilled and qualified classical pianist, I enjoy accompanying performers of all ages and instruments. If you or your child performs classical music and is looking for a reliable accompanist for a concert, recital, competition, audition or examination, send me a message or call me to discuss your needs. My fees are very reasonable and I’m more than willing to negotiate them according to the performer’s skill level and the demands of the accompaniment. I have a current Working With Children Check (WWCC).
I have accompanied a variety of instruments, including flute, clarinet, trumpet, violin and cello, as well as singers. My specialisation is accompanying voice and, as I am a semi-professional singer myself, I am familiar with much opera, musical theatre, oratorio, lieder and art song repertoire. Through my studies to postgraduate level at the University of Sydney, I have considerable understanding and familiarity with performance styles of a wide range of classical music. I can sight read extremely well and can also transpose at sight given adequate warning and preparation. My goal is to work with the performer I’m accompanying to present a musically secure and satisfying performance.
Rehearsals are preferable at my house located in the eastern suburbs of Sydney where I have a spacious music room with a grand piano. My house is free-standing and on one level only with a couple of steps at the front door. There is a bus stop directly in front of my house as well as plenty of free street parking. I am also willing to travel to another rehearsal venue if it is convenient and travel time permits.
