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 events all over the world. As an orchestral keyboard player he has worked in with the London Symphony Orchestra, the Bournemouth Orchestras, the Philharmonia, Ulster Orchestra, Scottish Opera and currently with the BBC Concert Orchestra. He has recently formed a professional orchestra in Chelmsford so is is trying his hand at orchestral management too. 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 friends and family.
