Musical Background

I studied at the RNCM with Trevor Wye, and was a prizewinner in the Young Artists’ Competition of the International Flute Association, held in the USA.

I was Principal Flute in the Performing Arts Symphony Orchestra for fifteen years, and I am currently Principal Flute with Sinfonia Viva.

As a freelance performer I have played with many of Britain’s leading orchestras including the Halle, Manchester Camerata, Manchester Concert Orchestra, National Symphony Orchestra, Northern Ballet Sinfonia, Orchestra da Camera and the Philharmonia.

I also perform with the chamber ensembles Fourtune and Zephyr. I am one half of Appassionata, a flute and harp duo which has released a CD.
