At one point my profile was quite extensive but, following some comments, I decided to delete it. Here is a 'cut down' version!
I won a scholarship to the RCM at 16 and, afterwards, read Music at Cambridge (M.A.,Mus.B.,and eventually Ph.D.) and then back to the RCM for a performers course (M.Mus., + Performer's and Teacher's Diplomas) and was lucky, at both institutions, to be influenced by some of the most distinguished musicians of their day. I had another musical life before becoming 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.
