Phil May has sung with Heaven Bent Gospel Choir for about 12 years. He took over the role early in 2011 from Max Maxwell “In that time I have had the privilege of being able to try out my arrangements with them, and work on my conducting skills.”
From 2001-03 Phil studied for the Jazz degree at the University of Auckland (performance piano) He says the arranging skills he learnt there have inspired him to do more. Since 2004 he has taught jazz and beginner classical piano. He also accompanies Heaven Bent on piano in a few of choir’s songs.
