At one point my profile was quite extensive but, following some comments, I decided to delete it. Here is a 'cut down' version!
I had a 'life' before this. I was a 'cellist! Studied with Pleeth and had masterclasses with Casals.
B.Mus. - a 'first', Master's (M.A., M.Phil.) and Ph. D level research and RCM/RAM Performer's and Teacher's Diplomas! I was lucky to be taught by and influenced by some of the most distinguished musicians of their day.
Became a, very part-time, church musician about 30 years ago.
I have a number of publications to my name and have also been fortunate enough to have given concerts/recitals in some of Europe's most prestigious venues. I no longer play for my living!
I enjoy this forum but I get frustrated sometimes with the pomposity of some members (and they with me!!!) and with the 'back of fag packet' organ designers!! Sometimes I make comments that infuriate members.
Some members know who I am and are welcome to contact me via my website. If you want to contact me and don't have my website then you can do it via this board and I will respond.
