He also performed with the cathedral choirs on tours and in concerts, with performances of Fauré’s Requiem, Bernstein’s Chichester Psalms, and Handel’s Messiah.
Born in Surrey in 1992, Jeremy received his first musical training with the Piano at the age of eight.

Whilst continuing his academic studies, Jeremy gained an ATCL performance diploma in Piano from Trinity College London in 2008.
Jeremy began his degree at the Royal Academy of Music in 2010, studying with Susan Landale, David Titterington and Clive Driskill-Smith. Whilst at the Academy, he was awarded the C H Trevor Prize and Gladys Aitken Award, and performed in masterclasses with Olivier Latry, Bine Bryndorf and Eric Lebrun, as well as a performance class with John Eliot Gardiner. After his first year at the Academy, he received his ARCO diploma, and performed on two of the Academy’s residential tours to Neresheim Abbey in Southern Germany. In October 2013, Jeremy played in the opening concert on the new Kuhn Organ in the Duke’s Hall, on which he gave his final recital the following May. Jeremy combined his studies at the Royal Academy with Organ Scholarships at Methodist Central Hall Westminster and the London Oratory, before embarking on his two-year Organ Scholarship at Peterborough Cathedral.
