Jeremy Davis

Piano

After completing his formal education at the Royal Academy of Music in London on both piano and ‘cello, he was awarded a French Government Scholarship to study with Vlado Perlemuter in Paris, where he began to explore the piano music of Faure and Ravel, with which he feels a special affinity. It was there he began to pursue a career as concert recitalist and chamber music player. On returning to London he shared the stage with the renowned pianist Louis Kentner at the QEH in a performance of Liszt’s Hexameron and quickly established himself as a freelance performer and teacher, appearing at major UK and Continental venues to critical acclaim. He is currently engaged in a series of concerts at St James Piccadilly devoted to rarely performed repertoire for piano and ensemble. His experience as a musician is wide ranging and diverse, encompassing a variety of genres, among others the chamber music of the 19th and 20th centuries, British music for violin and piano, and the 17 Century French Repertoire for viola da gamba, an instrument on which he is also proficient.

Jeremy has also worked extensively in opera, ballet, music theatre and contemporary dance collaborating with renowned conductors and choreographers as soloist, repetiteur and musical director at the London Festival Ballet , Chelsea Opera, Holland Park Opera, and Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts, and more recently as music advisor, session musician and composer/arranger for Parallax Films and Carlton Television Productions.

He is a member of staff at the London College of Music in the undergraduate, postgrad and junior departments, having had considerable experience there spanning 22 Years as teacher, adjudicator and external examiner and is currently Lead Keyboard Tutor for the Department.
