  • Teacher

    After many years performing, I’m really enjoying a return to one of my first passions, teaching. With a growing number of private students, it’s a pleasure working with them and helping them to further their musical aspirations.

    My approach to music education might best described as ‘holistic’ – I believe that understanding music as a ‘whole’ is paramount.  Maybe you need more than just piano lessons. Perhaps you want to understand more about chords, harmony and improvisation.  Do you want to know how to get the best out of your keyboard or have you ever wondered if your computer can help you achieve your musical goals.  Maybe it’s time to get in touch with that ‘inner song-writer ?

  • He has worked with many artists from the Rock and Pop world  including Kylie Minogue, Jason Donovan, Nik Kershaw and Howard Jones to name but a few.  In the last few years he has toured with Rick Astley both as his MD and keyboard player and was involved in the promotion of the 80s pop icon’s comeback album, ’50′. He has also played for several high profile dance shows featuring professional dancers from BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing series.

    John has had a long term working relationship with Roland (the Japanese electronic instrument manufacturer) since 1988 having travelled the world as a consultant, clinician and music educator. He has also been involved with product development and written many demo songs for these instruments.

    His music programming skills in recording, sequencing and music notation have been put to full use in the studio where he has worked on numerous projects for many international publishers, producers and musicians.

    Having moved in 2016, he now lives close to Milton Keynes with his partner and son.
