Welcome

Welcome to my wondrous world of music!  I have spent most of my life discovering that music is my sanctuary, that special place where dreams are formed and aspirations are realized.  As a performing artist, I have travelled to many places around the world and have played for and met truly extraordinary people.  In my studio, I enjoy giving recitals for those who wish to experience music as a close encounter.

Piano-playing is not only a solo affair – I adore playing chamber music with colleagues, both international visitors and Australian artists, and accompanying singers is one of my great loves. Perhaps my favorite genre is the piano concerto, which is musical collaboration on the grandest scale for pianists and offers a rich and irresistible repertoire.

Music-making is more than an art form; it is a skill that must be cultivated, treasured and passed on. My studio is also a training ground for those musicians who wish to discover themselves and develop to the best of their abilities so that they, too, can carry the torch into the next generation of young artists. 

My ongoing mission is to find personal meaning in the music that I share, whether it be performing, composing, listening or teaching. Whatever your musical desires are, I invite you to peruse these pages and see where they take you!
