She was principal harpist with the CBSO Youth Orchestra for six years, a position she also held with the award-winning Northampton Youth Orchestra from the age of twelve until leaving to start her studies at music conservatoire. She has participated in many masterclasses with such eminent harpists as Fabrice Pierre, Sylvain Blassel, Letitzia Belmondo and Elizabeth Fontan Binoche.
She had her concerto debut at St John’s, Smith Square, London, at the age of 15, and has travelled widely with her harp, playing both solo and orchestral works in Spain, Belgium, France and Portugal. She has played in many prestigious venues in the UK including The Royal Albert Hall, London Barbican, Cardiff Millennium Centre, Birmingham Symphony Hall and Festival Hall at London’s South Bank.
Regularly invited to play for dignitaries, she performed for members of the Royal family, including Her Majesty the Queen, and also for Lord Lieutenants. She has worked closely with composer Amir Sadeghi, with whom she has recorded a world premiere with the Marson Harp Trio for BBC Television, and also regularly plays as part of a flute and harp duo with Alice Thompson, a clarinet and harp duo with Christopher Hatton and with Soprano, Emma-Claire Crook.
She has a love of orchestral playing, regularly performing with orchestras such as the Leicester Symphony Orchestra and the Bardi Orchestra at Leicester's De Montfort Hall. She has also worked under many eminent conductors including Sakari Oramo, Edward Gardner, Jac Van Steen, Andris Nielson, Claus Efland, Rainer Hersch among others.
She is grateful to be supported by the Sir Andrew Martin Trust, The Gordon Robinson Memorial Trust, The Norman Gill Trust and The Dorothy Johnson Trust.
The Flautist has recently been announced as one of the Selected Artists in Making Music's Awards for Young Concert Artist's scheme 2014, and is looking forward to frequent solo performances as part of her freelance career.
She is in the final stages of completing a Masters degree in Music Performance at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music, studying with Anna Noakes. She is a TCL scholar, and generously supported by the Leverhulme Trust and the Harpenden Music Foundation.
While at Trinity Laban she has been a finalist of the Harold Clarke woodwind competition, the Soloist's Competition for two consecutive years, and semi-finalist in the Croydon Concerto Competition.

She was also finalist of the Micklam Prize, the Ambache Prize, the TH/SH Prize (2011 & '12) and the Woodwind Prize.
