    George Rowley

    George Rowley began his studies at the age of 7 in his hometown of Kidderminster. He later received a scholarship to the Junior Royal Birmingham Conservatoire to work with Magdalena Nasidlak, before embarking on his undergraduate studies with James Kirby at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. Whilst at RWCMD, George was accepted to study on an ERASMUS exchange programme at the prestigious Hannover Hochschule für Musik, before graduating with a first class honours degree in 2015. George continued his studies with Mark Bebbington at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, from where he graduated with the highest Distinction in his cohort. Most recently, he has been a pupil of professor László Borbély at the Franz Liszt Academy of Music in Budapest, supported by a scholarship from the Weingarten Trust.

    As a soloist, George has performed professionally throughout the country and abroad, including appearances at the Winchester Festival, the Holywell Rooms and the Liddell Concert Series. In addition to this, George has participated in masterclasses with pianists such as Nikolai Demidenko, Freddy Kempf, Steven Osbourne, Natalia Trull and Peter Donohoe and has reached the final stages of many competitions including the Brighton Concerto Competition, the intercollegiate Beethoven competition, and the Ian Stoutzker Prize.

    George is now based in the West Midlands where he is in high demand as a performer and teacher. He is currently a professor of piano at the Junior Royal Birmingham Conservatoire and has recently joined the piano faculty of Cheltenham Ladies’ College in addition to teaching privately from his studio. In March of this year, George made the premier commercial recordings of the piano sonatas of Ivor Gurney which will be released on the Naxos label in October.
