My musical journey began not long after my fifth birthday, when my parents brought home an old piano from the local charity shop. I was fascinated by this huge musical toy, which was to eventually become a major part of my life. I grew up surrounding myself with music – playing in a jazz band, making my own TV themes, and playing chamber music with friends from the Saturday music school.
My passion for music led me to study classical piano at Trinity College of Music, London, as a young adult. These were great times, where I had the opportunity to practice all day, and perform and play with friends at night. After my training, my studies continued with Nelly Ben-Or, a concert pianist who also specialises in the Alexander Technique, a method for developing deep internal awareness and using the body in an efficient, coordinated way.
