Deputy MD & Accompanist: Richard Stannard
Richard is an accomplished musician and has taught music for well over 30 years including 18 as the highly respected Head of Music at Thornden School where he also formed the Thornden Community Wind Band. He brings a wealth of valuable experience to RMVC and has composed and arranged pieces especially for Choir concerts performed in Romsey Abbey and other venues. Now teaching part time at the King’s School, Fair Oak, alongside regularly accompanying RMVC and taking the role of Deputy MD, Richard is actively involved in music and other activities at his local church, and more recently in developing countries. We are very fortunate that supporting others in their music-making through accompanying has been, and remains, one of his great pleasures.
