‘The Academy’s course stands out because of its diversity — nowhere else offers so many options in history, early music, jazz, analysis and all the rest. The ‘Open Academy’ opportunities to work outside the concert hall also particularly appealed to me.


In terms of playing, I’ve come to relish the experience of being on stage and have learned a lot about myself in the process. I’ve enjoyed solo recitals in the Duke’s Hall and external venues including the Royal Festival Hall as an award-winner of the Philharmonia Martin Musical Scholarship Fund. My prizes in the Camac and USA


International Competitions have also opened doors. Playing in the pit orchestra for ‘Albert Herring’ taught me a huge amount. I’ve premièred new works by student composers and I’ve been coached in Debussy’s chamber music by Sir Peter Maxwell Davies — no details escape his notice, and he really helped us to create a unified sound.


Now I’m preparing to graduate and have just accepted a job teaching in Thailand. I hope to inspire musicians of the future through my work there.’
