Anthony Williams MMus(Dist)  DipRAM  GRSM(Hons)  LRAM  ARAM

Concert pianist, writer, lecturer, ABRSM examiner and moderator and festival adjudicator, Anthony Williams was born in Essex and studied at the Royal Academy of Music with Alexander Kelly and at Reading University with Jonathan Dunsby.
Following international competition success Anthony embarked on a career as a concert pianist whilst also establishing an international reputation as a piano teacher. He has since become a passionate educator of pianistic musicianship at all ages from beginner to advanced. As well as giving piano masterclasses, public lecture-recitals and seminars on performance, repertoire and the art of teaching,  he is involved with numerous professional development courses and workshops both in the UK and abroad.
He has given talks on piano performance for Radio 3 and is author and editor of various publications which include The Best of Grade and Fingerprints (Faber) and Teaching Notes (ABRSM). His most recent and highly acclaimed book The Piano Teacher’s Survival Guide (Faber, 2017), is a comprehensive guide to teaching and playing the piano. It draws on his experience of teaching young beginners through to professional pianists, combined with insights from his professional playing around the world as both soloist and accompanist.
Anthony combines his busy freelance career with a full-time position at Radley College, Oxfordshire as Head of Keyboard and Instrumental Music.
