Cuthbertson is considered a master of improvisation, a skill he developed at Sevenoaks School under the guidance of Brian Townend and from time to time he accompanies silent films with free improvisation. His teaching is eclectic, using what approach is most applicable, complimantary and at the same time in harmony with Peter Feuchtwanger's brilliant insights.
