As well as playing piano with his trio for several years, Reuben has also played for Sam Smith. He spent the afternoon at Milton Abbey delivering a fantastic workshop session to pupils followed by a lecture-recital to the whole school during assembly, where he delighted the audience with a variety of jazz and popular music (including 'Writing's on the Wall' and other Bond themes). After taking pupils on a journey through his career to date, Reuben explained his belief that with hard work and determination we can be successful in whatever we want to achieve. We thank Reuben for taking the time to visit us and our pupils and staff alike very much enjoyed working with him.
