WELCOME TO MY WEBSITE!


Including the various aspects of jazz, over a period of years I have become involved in many different forms of music, i.e. Greek, Turkish, Middle Eastern, Indian, Brazilian, Cuban, Flamenco and of course classical music. There is always more to be learnt from other forms of music, provided they have something valid to offer. My work has taken me to many countries throughout the world and in each one I have always discovered something new to add to my knowledge and collection of instruments.


In the recording studios, there are many wonderful instruments which are played not necessarily for rhythm but for effects, such as the Chilean rainmaker, the Japanese kokiriko, the African talking drum (kalungu) or even an American invention known as a waterphone, just to mention a few. These exciting sounds have been used by many composers in their film scores which have added a further dimension to their music.
