About

A composer and violinist, I am currently studying for my A Levels at the Purcell School of Music, studying with Simon Speare, Carson Becke and Tony Cucchiara. I hold a scholarship under the Government’s Music and Dance Scheme at The Purcell School.

Previously, I studied at Junior Guildhall with Gonzalo Acosta, Jessica O’Leary and Paul Whitmarsh and was a Music Scholar at Bedford School 2012-17.

I have been working with composer Emma-Ruth Richards for the past4 years. In 2016/17 I was an Associate Composer with the Britten Sinfonia Academy.

My work has been performed at The New Auditorium, Glasgow, The Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge, The Purcell School, Bedford School and compositions have been workshopped at the Barbican Centre and the Guildhall School of Music.
