The Performer

Need an entertainer for your company event, holiday party, private do, festival...
Besides doing so as the "Teddy  Bear Man" Terry also actively performs as a "grown-ups" entertainer with several options to pursue. Once voted the  "Best Keyboards" in his home province, Terry plays piano and/or keyboards in a wide range of settings. From private parties to club venues; concert halls to festivals, Terry is at home wherever he finds an audience. The bottom line for him as a performer is that he loves to see people enjoy themselves.

The Composer

Terry has been called a "troubadour" as in the "days of old" when the court musician would write songs on the spur of the moment to suit whatever occasion was taking place at the time.

Apart from composing songs for the "Teddy Bear Man" to sing, Terry has created songs for a number of collective  theatrical productions, and comes up with a song on demand for a particular topic and/or function. He has written about a variety of global issues and has worked with various faith communities inspiring him to compose material relevant to these experiences.

The Playwright

In 2005 Terry's play "Some Picnic!" (with original songs) was debuted in Washington, DC and received a spontaneous  standing ovation. The play is the story of one family's escape from the clutches of Nazi terror. It begins on May  9th, 1940, one day before the Nazis invaded Belgium. Terry has also written a play about mental illness and is 
available to workshop either of the two above plays.
