My music performances all date back to 1996 – 2006.
As an older beginner in music, I always felt that a career in performance was not viable. Not only did I lack a necessary level of ‘comfort’ technically, but perhaps more importantly, my confidence in piano playing was in short supply, and it would take many more years before both of these issues were remedied to some extent.
My music studies began with classical guitar and during those early years when I studied guitar, I had many performances including my début recital at The Large Room, Waterford, in 1997 (which also transpired to be my finale with that instrument)!
My piano performances include piano accompaniment and some short solo recitals, as well as performances at festivals, competitions and masterclasses, in Ireland, United Kingdom, France, Italy and Czech Republic.
