Richard began classical piano lessons in England at the age of six. He went on to play piano for members of the British Royal Family at the Royal Berkshire Polo Club & the Royal Thames Yacht Club. As a London-based professional he made appearances at The Ritz, The Savoy, Covent Garden and, before moving to America in 1991, a two year run at London's Hotel Russell. In San Francisco Richard's career continued with nightly contracts at the renowned Fisherman's Wharf restaurant A. Sabella's and has since performed solo piano for crowds large and small in the majority of Bay Area hotels, restaurants & lounges. Drawing from a large and varied repertoire Richard will add sophistication to any room.
