Edward Bettella is a pianist, composer and teacher, combining his busy teaching schedule with writing new music for a variety of settings.
Edward began his piano studies aged 7 under concert pianist and teacher Brian Ellsbury. In 2013 he completed his Associate level diploma with Distinction, through Trinity College, London. He is currently working towards his Licentiate diploma under the tutelage of concert pianist and lecturer, Maria Garcia. This diploma program includes the works of Chopin, Rachmaninoff and Schoenberg. In April 2015, Edward performed in a master class with world renowned pianist Melvyn Tan.
In November 2014, Edward’s choral work ‘Voices From The Front’ was premiered in Bath. This piece was written to mark the centenary of the First World War, combing the poems of soldiers who fought during the conflict with music. In August 2015, Edward premiered ‘Sunset Fan/Sunset Flood’, a suite in 4 movements for piano and cello, inspired by the poems of writer James Roy Blair Anderson.
