PIANO

Equally at home as a concerto soloist, recitalist, chamber musician, choral accompanist, or educator, he regularly collaborates with leading musicians in the country’s major performance venues and festivals.

Hailed as posessing “limitless potential with real emotional sensitivity and inquisitive intelligence” by the celebrated concert pianist André Watts, Edward began studies at the Royal College of Music when he was ten, and is a first class graduate of the Royal Academy of Music where he was a prize-winning student. Additionally, he has studied at Indiana University's Jacobs School of Music, and is an alumnus of the Lucerne Festival Academy.

Edward holds two MMus degrees with Distinction from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, where he currently maintains a position as lecturer in piano in both the senior and junior departments. Under his additional role as staff accompanist, he has created all of the new accompaniment modules that the conservatoire offers its students. He is a principal study teacher for the University of Glasgow, accompanist and coach at the Aberdeen International Festival of Youth Arts, and has recently given masterclasses at home and abroad, including at the University of Edinburgh and the Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre.
