Work

There is no such thing as a "standard" day when it comes to working as a freelance musician and being a pianist adds its own array of variety and complexity. Listed below is only a sample of my ever-evolving and changing work practice - it goes with saying that the many rehearsals, concerts, examinations, masses, lecturing, teaching and own-practise are taken as given!
