Neil Roxburgh


Headshot for Neil Roxburgh

Born in Canada, Neil Roxburgh's fine reputation as pianist and teacher has led to a varied and multifaceted professional career.

At ease with a wide range of classical repertoire, from traditional to more contemporary styles, a particular affinity with the music of Debussy and Ravel has earned much praise and recital programmes convey his versatile and often intimate playing style.

Solo and ensemble performances have taken him through Europe and to North America, with recognition for “finely graded playing” (The Times) and “consummate professionalism” (The Independent), and he has featured in broadcasts on BBC Radio 3 and Classic FM as well as Canadian media.

Following initial studies in Toronto, Neil Roxburgh was awarded a major scholarship to study piano with John Barstow at the Royal College of Music and received numerous honours for his playing. The Dannreuther Prize for his performance of the Samuel Barber Piano Concerto was a highlight, and his RCM studies culminated in him being presented with the prestigious Tagore Gold Medal as outstanding male student.

A committed and respected teacher, he has taught piano and chamber music in the Royal College of Music Junior Department since 1995 and currently also holds teaching positions at The King's School, Canterbury and St Paul’s Girls’ School in London. He additionally gives master classes, adjudicates music festivals and regularly examines nationally and internationally for the ABRSM.
