 “I recently spent a day with members of the Paraorchestra.  This was a moving experience.  Everyone put aside their disabilities and made music together.  This  is how I feel it should be.

I became interested in music through my own children’s music lessons and have been playing the flute since the age of forty two.  I gained a diploma early in 2001 and teach both privately and at the King’s School, Ely.  My pupils range from age 4 - 74 years and in ability from beginner to diploma.

In 2010 I started training as a Suzuki flute teacher, and have found the whole experience inspirational. I have ten students and work closely with a Suzuki piano teacher in Cambridge.  I also perform with The Ely Sinfonia.  As I am blind I have to memorise all my orchestral parts.  Some memorable performances include Schubert’s 5th symphony, Bach’s 4th Brandenburg concerto, and Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade.

It was a real privilege to perform at my eldest daughter’s wedding accompanied by my middle daughter on the piano.  Eighteen months ago I performed with a string quartet at my elder son’s wedding.

I have been tutored by many well-known flautists including Ian Clarke, Kate Hill and Wissam Boustany.
