My name is Charlie Bates. I am a pianist and composer who lives and works in Birmingham. I just graduated from the Birmingham Conservatoire with First Class honours and have recently released my first album; The Charlie Bates Big Band – Silhouettes. This has received some great reviews and has been played on national radio.

I love all kinds of music, including Jazz, Classical, Rock, Funk and Soul. I have been teaching for a number of years and am very much looking forward to being part of Streetestra!
