Ethan was born in 2004 and diagnosed completely blind since birth. As a toddler, he would explore the piano
for hours imitating his first inspiration, Rowlf the piano playing dog from the Muppet Show. His second
inspiration, the DVD "Horowitz in Vienna", he played relentlessly.
His formal piano lessons began at age 4 with his mother, but now he takes the long drive from Stirling to
Manchester to study with Simon Bottomley. He has been composing since early childhood and loves to tell
imaginative stories about his compositions.
Ethan's first major concert was at a Music in Lanark event where he also debuted his first major composition work, "Wallace at Lanark" illustrating the life of Scottish hero William Wallace.
Ethan was the focus of a BBC radio documentary called "Batman and Ethan". The central message of the documentary is the freedom a blind child can experience through working with the talented teacher of the blind, Daniel Kish.
In 2015 Ethan won the under-14 category at the Glasgow Music Festival when he was only 10 years old.
In November 2016 Ethan was awarded his first major International award in the Vatican. He received the “Premio Asoluto” prize at the 15th International "Giuseppe Sciacca" awards in Rome for his ability to create music “full of colours” as an inspiration to all.
On Saturday, 18th March 2017 Ethan won the 7th James Waterhouse Loretto Piano Competition "Advanced" class. As part of that prize, he performed at Steinway Hall in London.
In November 2017, Ethan won his category in the wonderful 25th Festival of Chopin in Mazovia, Poland. He performed at Chopin's house and later for the Warsaw Music Society.
His first TV appearance followed in May 2018 on the ITV show Little Big Shots.
