Tim Carey

Concert Pianist and Flute Accompanist



Tim first joined us in 2006 when he joined Ian Clarke for our 3rd annual workshop, he was such a success we invited him back the year after to join Wissam Boustany, giving them their first chance to work together. He was also persuaded to join Flute Cocktail's musical director Michael Wood in a recital in Tavistock in December 2006.

Tim lives in Chelmsford, continues to enjoy a career full of variety as solo performer, chamber-music player, orchestral keyboard player and teacher.  His early studies were with Harold Parker, Louis Kentner, and then, at the Royal College of Music, with Kendall Taylor, David Parkhouse, and Bernard Roberts.  He was awarded many prizes and scholarships during his time there, both in and outside college.

He now spends his time giving solo recitals and concerto performances and partnering many different instrumentalists, especially flautists, in a large variety of chamber-music combinations. He is the regular pianist for the Flutewise series, the Wildacres course in North Carolina, the Cincinnati flute symposium and many other flute events in England and America. As an orchestral keyboard player he has worked in the past with the London Symphony Orchestra, the Bournemouth Orchestras, the Philharmonia and currently with the Ulster Orchestra in Northern Ireland. He is much in demand as a teacher throughout his home county of Essex.
