Having gained an LRAM diploma at the age of 16, Richard Pilliner won a scholarship to the Royal Academy of Music, where he took all the prizes for organ playing, accompaniment and improvisation. Whilst still a student, he received awards from the Countess of Munster Musical Trust and the Greater London Arts Association.

Some of the important venues that he has played at include St Patrick's Cathedral and St Thomas, Fifth Avenue, NYC, Washington National Cathedral, the National Shrine and the Kennedy Center, Washington DC, and cathedrals in Atlanta, Chicago, Philadelphia, Topeka, San Francisco and Los Angeles.
