I am a Piano professor at the Royal College of Music, where I also coach chamber music, lead the Concerto Performance module and teach Piano Pedagogy. I also teach at the RCM’s Junior Department.

At Guildhall School of Music & Drama, I am a Professor of Academic Studies and teach a module on the intersection between musical thought and practice. I also teach piano at City, University of London and am on the Keyboard faculty at the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama. I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

I record the CDs for the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM)’s Piano Syllabus, Grades 4 to 8.

I also feature in the Tido Music app, which includes my filmed performances and tutorial videos, which were made in collaboration with Edition Peters for their Piano Masterworks series.
