About me: After spending my schooldays in York and Rochester I went on to the University of East Anglia in Norwich for three years to read music. Following this I moved to London and spent a year studying piano accompaniment and harpsichord at the Royal College of Music. It was not long after this that I started tuning under the guidance of Mimi Waitzman, and then launched into my career. Apart from a five year sabbatical, which I spent as Business Manager of the Sixteen Choir, I have been working with early keyboard instruments all my life. In addition to this I am Personal Assistant to Trevor Pinnock as well as being his keyboard technician. As a very small extra job I enjoy being Assistant Organist at St Michaels Church in Summertown, Oxford, which incidentally is a wonderful recording venue!
