Jeremy Woolhouse is a jazz musician based in Melbourne, Australia. He is known as a composer and pianist in a variety of jazz settings. Jeremy also teaches piano and Alexander Technique.
Born 5th October 1977 Jeremy had some early lessons on the Yamaha Electone, then switched to trombone before taking up piano at the age of 19. He studied music at Box Hill College of TAFE and Victorian College of the Arts before training in Alexander Technique at the School For FM Alexander Studies.
Jeremy’s music became recognised in 2002 with the launch of a jazz - tango fusion project called “Estuary Three”. Originally an instrumental trio performing Jeremy’s original compositions, the ensemble morphed into a project with dancers, vocals and included traditional tango repertoire. This venture established Jeremy as a composer and pianist whose style artfully encompasses European Jazz, South American and World Music influences.
The Woolhouse - Michailidis - Robertson collaboration with bassist Ben Robertson and guitarist Lucas Michailidis featured Jeremy’s composition and highlighted his improvisational prowess. The trio’s recording of the album “Ascent” received much critical acclaim and continues to be featured on Australian radio.
In 2012 Jeremy released recordings of a suite of solo piano works entitled “The Persistence of Dreaming” and in 2013 released The Scenery of Life Unfolding - a duet project with bassist Shannon Birchall.
