Biography

CRW_1460-03_edited-1-portrait--optimised-for-webZillah Myers (b 1974) is a piano teacher, composer and performer based in Ealing, West London. She was brought up in a remote corner of North Cornwall, a place of wild rugged beauty and eccentricity that still infuses much of her creative output.

Zillah took her first degree at Oxford University and then pursued further studies in piano at the London College of Music under Jeremy Davis, gaining an ALCM diploma (Associate of the London College of Music). As well as teaching piano, she now performs regularly as part of various chamber ensembles and with the Addison Singers, with concerts in venues across London including Kings Place and St Martin in the Fields and further afield with recent tours to Vienna, Paris and Cornwall. Since 2019, she has also been teaching music to undergraduate students from the University of Samford, as part of a very popular Arts & Society course taught at the university’s London residence in South Kensington, West London.

Zillah writes mostly choral, piano and chamber music. Her choral works have been performed in London as part of the Brandenburg Choral Festival, in regular concerts by the Addison Chamber choir as well as in Cornwall and the Isle of Man. She studies composition part time at City Lit university and privately with composer Paul Ayres.

Prior to her becoming a full-time musician, Zillah worked for 16 years at the BBC, mainly working within the Radio & Music department. Zillah is based in Ealing, West London with her husband and two children.
