Rupert Cheek: FFM Ambassador for the UK
I am a musician. Having graduated with a BMus in 2002 I went on to postgraduate study (composition for TV & Film) and performed as part of an international arts event (London, Edinburgh, Berlin) through a connection as University. I have worked as a pianist in primary education, been a drummer in various bands, and accompanied singers and songwriters. I’m also a part time composer and working on a music theatre / musical / opera project in my spare time.
My name is Rupert Cheek and I live in London, UK. I studied music for many years; including piano from the age of 5 – 22. I graduated with a BMus and studied TV/Film composition as a post graduate. I loved playing drums in bands and accompanying singers on the piano. I’m organising an arts festival in London to raise money for London’s Air Ambulance and Nordoff Robbins.
I’m very curious and I love asking questions, listening, learning and sharing what I’ve learnt. I relish helping people (musicians, entrepreneurs / startups, businesses) to connect online. I have been an active user of Facebook since 2007, Twitter since 2009 and LinkedIn.
I maintain and develop Cheeky Promo, the music community I established in January 2013. Cheeky Promo is a music promoter based in the UK, working predominantly online to help musicians in any way we can. Particular highlights have included connecting with, meeting, promoting and hearing 2 blind classical pianists from Buenos Aires perform in London, meeting former Freakpower member Ashley Slater and promoting his band Kitten And The Hip.
