Atmospherica concert series launch.

I performed a selection of my piano music to an enthusiastic audience at the launch of the Atmospherica concert series  last Thursday lunchtime.

Just less than thirty people squeezed into the studio to listen and they seemed to enjoy themselves.

Here’s a little clip from the concert so you can see a bit of what went on.

If you would like to come to the next concert featuring the work of the amazing Mark Deeks please visit this web page to book your ticket. You can find out more about Mark and listen to some of his work at

New Piano Settling In Nicely!

The latest addition to the studio is a 1905 Bechstein grand piano. I’m really excited about letting you hear this amazing instrument in the January ‘Atmospherica‘ concert series.

It has a lively, versatile sound with a crystal clear treble range and plenty of power in the bass notes.  I’m going to be carefully positioning some microphones very soon so stay tuned to hear the results  very soon.

Murmuration Sheet Music now on sale

The sheet music for my Murmuration EP is now on sale at

It taken a little while to put these together using a program called ‘Sibelius’ that on the whole works really well but has taken a little bit of learning and experimentation to get good results. I’m very happy with the way the pieces look and also pleased with the look and feel of the final product – the printing, paper stock and cover images all work nicely together.

If you are thinking of playing these pieces I would estimate that the level of difficulty is roughly equivalent to ABRSM Grade 5 or 6.

The book containing all four pieces from the EP is priced at £12.50 plus p&p.

New EP – where to buy?

My new four track solo piano EP ‘Murmuration’ is now available to listen to and to buy on this web site as well as on  my bandcamp page here

It is also available in a number of other online stores including

The sheet music book for the album, if you would like to play these pieces on the piano yourself, will be available later this coming week via the band camp link above.

I very much hope you enjoy the music and thanks again for taking the time to listen and supporting independent artists.

Happy New Year

Hi all,
Back into the studio today after an enjoyable festive break. I’m currently working on preparing  library tracks for submission, some library track admin (boring but necessary), editing scores for my forthcoming solo piano sheet music collection and listening to some great work from my friends Sam and Dan Burt who have made this fine collection of trailer music.

The playing and recording of the next solo piano record will have to be put on hold for a while as a result of a fracture of my left thumb sustained whilst stalling my motorbike at the petrol station before Christmas. No boogie woogie for a while…what a dafty!
