I am a 24 year old pianist and singer with a BMus in Commercial Music Performance and PGCE in Secondary Music. I have played the piano for 10 years, during which, I have achieved grade 8 piano; grade 5 theory and have continued to work professionally as an accompanist to choirs and vocal workshops. I am also a singer/songwriter with much performance experience. Most prestigiously, I have performed in venues such as the Jazz Cafe, Ronnie Scotts, the Royal Albert Hall and Hackney Empire to name a few. As well as this, I have worked with the likes of Adele, Beverly Knight and the ACM Gospel Choir. Aside from my work as a performer, I have spent the last year teaching singing at Stagecoach Primrose Hill. I currently teach students from ages 7 to 16. Prior to this position, I completed my PGCE year, achieving QTS. I am an eclectic music listener and am able to play in most styles. I also have a particular and developing interest in the hispanic world, their music and language.

Acting

All of my acting experience comes from my musical training. Throughout the course of my BTEC National Diploma at the BRIT School and during my Degree, I was required to act through song. My own music and performance shows much vulnerability and requires a connection with the words and meaning in each song.

I have also done much singing in gospel choirs, which have required on many occasions that I perform as if I am in connection with deity, overjoyed etc. Most recently, in fact, I performed with the London Community Gospel Choir on ITV's "Superstar", in which we were additionally giving roles as extras (market traders) on stage.
