Highly versatile pianist and accompanist available for any event.
Very friendly person who was keen to satisfy all our needs. I would recommend him and be happy to use again.
Tom began learning the keyboard at age 7 and quickly moved on to the piano. After taking grade 4 in 2003 he rapidly moved through the grades and in December 2009 he gained a diploma in piano performance from ABRSM. During his time at school and sixth form he was a member of a number of ensembles and jazz bands, both in and out of school. Tom also participated in a number of musical extra curricular activities, including playing at a local care home and a school for children with learning difficulties. Whilst at Sixth Form College he made the decision to study music and gained a place to study for a BA (Hons) degree at the University of Southampton. During his time at the University he began playing the harpsichord and in his final year became part of an early music trio. Tom played with both the Symphony Orchestra and Symphonic Wind Orchestra as an orchestral pianist and assisted with a production of Sondheim’s ‘Sunday In The Park With George’, playing as a rehearsal pianist and in the pit band for the final production. Tom also started working as an accompanist, playing with several students in their final recitals. In his final year Tom took modules in composition and performance and received a first for his final performance of works by Beethoven, Chopin and Prokofiev. Tom now works as a freelance pianist and accompanist, and in a short space of time has played at a wide selection of events, including private parties, christenings, wedding ceremonies and wedding receptions. His has accompanied other musicians for exams, weddings and concerts, including a fundraising concert for the Royal British Legion, and worked with local schools, assisting with productions and concerts.
