Ian McTeer, piano, is in demand as a solo concert artist and also for his high level accompanist work.
Ian was recently broadcast on BBC Radio 4 performing Satie's Gymnopedie No.3.
Ian McTeer was born in 1958 and began piano lessons at the age of eleven. In 1972 at the age of fourteen he commenced tuition with John Bryden at Kelso High School.
During the period 1972--1976 he began to perform at concerts and took part in classes for young pianists as part of a summer school of music at Downe House near Newbury. He was awarded prizes for instrumental accomplishment and music while still at Kelso High School and in 1976 started full time study at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama (now known as the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland) under Lawrence Glover, gaining the DRSAM in Piano Teaching in 1979 as well as the prize for Harmony and Counterpoint for that year.
In 1980 as part of his postgraduate studies he took part in a masterclass given by the well known Hungarian pianist Peter Frankl and was commended for his musical playing of pieces by Schumann.
He continued part time studies with Bernard King and in 1983 gained the ARCM in piano performance.
Ian regularly plays a wide range of repertoire as a solo recitalist in various local venues and in more recent years he has also performed in a duo capacity with local soprano Elizabeth Cameron and frequently accompanied singers and instrumentalists at exams and concert engagements.
His playing of Satie's Gymnopedie No.3 was broadcast as part of a BBC Radio 4 World Tonight programme featuring Cavendish pianos in 2012.
