“Very accomplished and controlled playing”

She is a passionate advocate of amateur pianism and co-hosts, with Lorraine Liyanage, the London Piano Network, which organises performance and social events for adult amateur pianists in and around London. Another initiative is the South London Concert Series, an innovative concert series which offers semi-professional and talented amateur musicians the opportunity to perform in a formal concert setting in some of London’s most intimate and unusual venues.
