He also studied postgraduate jazz piano at Guildhall, London, and in Cologne.

These will cover a wide spectrum of emotions, separately employing both the piano and the cathedral organ. I will also include my composition, originally commissioned by the Union Chapel, Islington, to commemorate murdered environmental activists on Good Friday 2018, based on the Lutheran chorale ‘O Sacred Head, Sore Wounded’.”
