homeofficepianist

Welcome to homeofficepianist, a website embracing the unique opportunities of this moment in time to explore alternative forms of creative communication. In sharing the result of his daily practice sessions with you, the homeofficepianist invites you into the everyday rhythms of his musical journey

Utilising the time at home afforded by the current restrictions, the homeofficepianist is embarking on an expansive exploration of the musical universe, with each journey catalogued in a collection of periodic recordings. 


Initially, these recordings were made as a tool to self-monitor practice progression. However, these humble recordings capture something of the feeling of performance, and therefore the homeofficepianist began to share them with friends and colleagues. The positivity of this experience has inspired him to create this platform to welcome you into this musical exchange, joining him on a mystical and enlightening path.
