Musical Background: I started playing piano when I was around 10 years old. At that time, my family moved into a house that had a neglected upright piano in one of the rooms. The piano was out of tune and needed several repairs to broken keys. A local piano tuner carried out the repairs and tuned it as well as he could, but had to leave it at 2 or 3 semitones below concert pitch. If my playing sounds out of tune, you know the reason why!

I taught myself to read music and to play the piano from an old Piano Tutor book that was in the piano stool. I well remember the painstaking effort to perfect the right hand and then the left for my very first piece. Only to be followed by having to play them both together!

About 10 years later I bought my first organ (as it happens, all Yamahas from here on). I owned three organs over the next few years, the last two being from the HS series, and eventually succeeded in adding some sort of a left foot pedal technique.

From then until only two or three years ago, my interest in playing dwindled to just the occasional session, as I lacked any real outlet for my music. My interest was, however, renewed when I bought my first keyboard and re-awoken each time I upgraded. I currently play the PSR3000.

A few years ago, my discovery of the internet and what it can do to aide the musician was a revelation. The friendship that the various groups and forums provide to we keyboardists took me from a solo home player to part of an international family of players, generous with their time, advice and encouragement.

My only public performing has consisted of a few charity concerts, providing backing music to a troupe of performers. But, more recently, I have been lucky enough to have some music accepted and published on various music websites. So … who knows … I may still be famous one day! (updated 8/11/07).
