cropped-RogPianoStoney3.jpgMy name is Roger Filkins and I 
have been a professional pianist 
for over 40 years. 
From a child, I really wanted to 
learn to play the piano and at the
age of 8 years, I was registered 
with my first piano teacher and 
finally went onto study under the 
guidance of the London Royal 
College of Music, which mainly 
involved works of the classical 
composers of fame.  
From there and during my mid 
teens, there was no escaping 
the influence of pop music, 
along with my yearning 
to want to play a little jazz.
I then embarked on tours with 
small bands, entertaining at 
some of the top names of 
venues at coastal resorts 
during the Summer months and 
Winter seasons were filled with 
working nightclubs and military 
forces bases. 
Then, an opportunity arose and I 
was invited to perform as 
resident pianist in a five-star 
hotel restaurant, in a city that 
very few people had ever heard 
of at that time (including me) 
and that city was Dubai, 
where I continued to work for a 
number of years, enjoying life 
in a part of the world that was 
vibrant and on it's way to 
becoming the fantastic 
metropolis that we 
know today. From Dubai, I was 
commissioned for work in 
Bahrain, Qatar, Baghdad, 
performing for hotels such as 
Sheraton, Intercontinental, 
Hilton, Meridian, 
along with appearances in 
China and cruises with Cunard. 
I have performed 
on TV and radio and have 
numerous recordings 
to my credit.

    Pleased to read that you’ve done so well for yourself. We met in May, 1976 in Pontins. My name was Carole Setchfield then and I lived in Woking. Best regards.
