As I drove to wards Amersham the distinctive sight of “Ambers of Amersham” came into view and I’ve got to say that this was an event I was looking forward to. The last occasion that I played the piano here was a couple of years ago and I really enjoyed the event. To call Ambers […]

Yesterday I played the piano for a 70th birthday party which was being held at the wonderful Stoke House. I have played at this fine historic venue quite a few times and I’m always taken aback by the splendour of the place. Also, I must mention how friendly and helpful the staff are at this […]

It was quite cold as I waited for the 5:55am London train. I had my digital piano strapped to a foldaway sack trolley and I had a small amplifier and leads in a small backpack. I was on my way to a wedding at Asia House, Cavendish Street and the ceremony started at 10:30am. I […]

It was an easy journey taking me […]
