Rustom Battiwalla, born in London, began playing the piano around the age of five. Later he also took up the double bass, and was for several years a member of the London Schools Symphony Orchestra. After leaving school Rustom went to the Guildhall School of Music to study piano, jazz piano and double bass. He emerged with a First Class graduation as well an Associate Diploma with honours from the Royal College of Music. At this time Rustom made the decision to remain an amateur musician, and since then he has given frequent solo, duet and chamber music recitals around the country. Rustom lives in Bristol with his wife and daughter, and when he is not playing the piano, fulfils his childhood ambition by working as a train driver
