About me

I studied joint first study flute and piano at the royal College of Music and won exhibition scholarships on both instruments. I also won the Eve Kisch flute prize and several other prizes for all-round musicianship. I have given recitals at the Wigmore Hall and Purcell Room (as winner of the Park Lane Group Competition) and live on Classic FM.

As well as many recitals in festivals across the UK, I had many rewarding years the 'Live Music Now!' scheme with my brother and our flutes/marimba duo. We also regularly entertained guests of HRH the Prince of Wales at Highrove, Windsor and Buckingham Palace. I toured in South America for the British Council and worked with London Philharmonic and Bournemouth Symphony Orchestras. I am currently recording the little-known but wonderful 96 unaccompanied pieces by Charles Koechlin 'Chants de Nectaire' and will soon perform a recent commission by composer Lois Wyat. 

My love of folk music led me to recording a CD of music inspired by folk music of the British Isles, playing and recording Flamenco music, playing and singing in folk bands and co-founding the Rockhampton Folk Festival now in its sixth year.
