Meet Your Tutor
From Gosport, Hampshire, Myles started studying piano and clarinet just before his GCSEs, and quickly discovered a passion for music making. In the years that followed, Myles began organ lessons with Geoffrey Holroyde (formerly of Coventry Cathedral) and became the organ scholar at Holy Trinity Church, Gosport on the newly restored Handel organ, whilst accompanying various choirs around the town.
Moving to Southampton in 2014 to read French and Music, Myles began working freelance in the city, playing for St. Deny's and St. Barnabas Church until he moved to France for study in 2017. Whilst there, he was tutored by Pierre Georgeault at La Cathédrale de Rennes, whilst co-directing and accompanying the university mixed and all-female choirs and specialising in piano pedagogy and medieval musicology. Upon his return, Myles became the Michael James Organ Scholar at Romsey Abbey and the Southampton University Organ Scholar at St. Michael's Church, and started to set up his private tuition studio.
After graduating, Myles started working for the Southampton Music Service as a peripatetic piano and clarinet teacher, whilst teaching freelance in and around the city. In September 2018 Myles became the Director of Music at St. James Church West End, and currently sits on the committee for the Winchester and District Association of Organists. He was the Conductor for The Woodside Singers from 2019-2020, and is currently working on a variety of online music projects, including the #Improv365 challenge, and editing together piano concerts and duets.
Myles performs regularly around Hampshire for a mixture of private functions and concerts, and he is currently working towards a Licentiate from the ABRSM in performance and teaching.
In his spare time Myles can be found learning Japanese, or enjoying the freedom of two wheels on his motorbike.
"Myles is such an inspiring and enthusiastic pianist. I feel like I've really landed on my feet having lessons with him!"

"...What really makes our lessons great is how patient, calm and supportive Myles is. I couldn't recommend him highly enough."
