I am available to provide piano accompaniment for performance, auditions, examinations and music festivals. In my career as a professional accompanist, I have had performing experience in many different styles from Lieder and classical instrumental sonatas to music theatre and the latest show songs. This versatility has been very useful in many musical situations. I have performed with many well known singers and instrumentalists in broadcasting, concerts and recitals and I am equally at home in recital, concert, cabaret or the recording studio.

Much of my work is as an audition accompanist and I am involved regularly in this role for the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and the National Youth Orchestra of Scotland.

Over the years I have enjoyed my work as an accompanist for various competitive music festivals and through this have accompanied many talented young musicians.

"Poulenc's Novellette No 1 was beautifully played by Walter Blair" (Moffat Music Society)

"Such variety and expertise in every way, the concert was an absolute stunner from start to finish" (Beith Arts - concert with Mark O'Keeffe trumpet and Patricia MacMahon soprano).
