James Lloyd Thomas 's profile picture

I have played in many venues around the world as a soloist and accompanist. I have lived and worked in Hong Kong and new Zealand. I trained in London with some of the best teachers around and I started my career there. I am now based in the East Midlands, but will travel any reasonable distance to play. I love giving concerts and recitals, I accompany and play for services in churches of all denominations. I have my own high quality digital piano that I can bring with me if needed I am often available at short notice and also give concerts with my harpist wife!

5 out of 5

James was able, at short notice, to pull out all the stops when needed. I had a very quick, positive response to my request for booking his professional musical services. He was able to play both the organ and grand piano at St Paul's Bedford with soft, seemingly effortless quality which was very uplifting for the congregation. Five out of five. Thankyou, Adam B.
