Accompanying is one aspect of music making that has always been close to my heart and while I was a student many performances and masterclasses saw me in action at the piano.
In a professional capacity I have appeared as accompanist with instrumentalists and singers of all abilities, including accompanying multiple exams in a university setting, accompanying professional auditions and giving full recitals with soloists. Recent concerts have included Mozart's Piano Quartet and Schubert's Trout Quintet and recitals of music for violin and piano during the Edinburgh Festival with repertoire including music by Handel and Tartini, Beethoven's Spring Sonata and Elgar's Sonata, Brahms' Hungarian Dances and works by Kabalevsky and Copland.
I have a large amount of exprerience as a choral accompanist. In addition to frequent 'Come-and-Sing' events in Scotland and Northen Ireland, playing both piano and organ, I have accompanied a large number of established choirs including Ulster Youth Choir, Cadenza, Dunfermline Choral Union, Edinburgh Festival Chorus and Belfast Philharmonic Society whom I accompanied for the past 5 years, playing for both the children's and adult choirs. and playing for conductors including Christopher Bell, William Macey, Christian Curnyn, David Agler, Martin Haselböck, Jac van Steen and Ennio Morrocone to name a few. In addition I regularly accompany the National Girls Choir and National Youth Choir of Scotland which have included tours to France and Sweden.
