Tim Carey, who lives in Chelmsford, England, enjoys 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, London, 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 partnering many different instrumentalists, especially flautists, in a large variety of chamber-music combinations, as well as giving the occasional solo recital or concerto performance. He is the regular pianist for many flute festivals and conventions all over the world. Last year included six trips to the USA, as well as China, Brazil, Costa Rica, Sweden, Slovenia and elsewhere, all working with flautists.
As an orchestral keyboard player he has worked with the London Symphony Orchestra, the Bournemouth Orchestras, the Philharmonia, Ulster Orchestra, Scottish Opera and currently with the BBC Concert Orchestra. He is also much in demand as a teacher throughout his home county of Essex.
When not actively involved in musical pursuits, Tim still finds time for his other interests which include languages, collecting and restoring cars, aircraft, boats and spending time with his large family.
