Emily trained at King’s College, London for her undergraduate degree in music, specialising in performance and composition, and at the Royal Academy of Music for several years of postgraduate study gaining a Masters and PGDip.
Throughout her education and musical training Emily attended workshops and masterclasses with numerous notable musicians such as Yeuhdi Menuhin, Jaap van Zweden, Sir Colin Davis, Sir Roger Norrington, the Skampa Quartet and many others from whom she gained invaluable lessons in the language of string, chamber and orchestral playing. She also performed with Sir Elton John and for BBC radio recordings whilst at the Royal Academy of Music.
Since completing studies in 2005 Emily has maintained a career combining performing, teaching and composing in various genres. Work ranges from freelance orchestral playing and recording on film soundtracks to writing and recording strings for folk, pop, indie and electronic artists, playing for numerous high profile events across London with string ensembles and more recently as a solo cello act for events across the south.
Emily has played regularly with the Brighton Philharmonic, Belmont Ensemble, Trafalgar Sinfonia, Celli Quartet, Corelli Ensemble, Brighton Cello Quartet and many others. Her production music has been used by the BBC on programs such as The One Show, Flog It, the Radio 4 Book Award and programs on the Sky History Channel. She is currently writing cello trio arrangements for electronic singer January Thompson and will be performing these at her next show.
