When I was in my fourth year of study at the Royal Academy of Music, I was aware of the crossroads that I had reached. While studying, I had became very aware of what outreach can do, not just for the community, but also for the musician themselves. Open Academy projects had not just been a means to an end, but they have started a process for me that allowed me to appreciate the possibilities for the modern musician. This role is diverse, and to be able to be a music leader and an effective communicator has become very important to me.


The education and outreach work that I had done made me very musically fulfilled, even as much as coming off stage. I made a decision to opt more towards outreach work as a musician, because I loved the kind of work that I had so far experienced. Outreach work and the performing that I do can very much go hand in hand. For me, they complement each other so well and I couldn’t see one working without the other.
