"Since studying at Goldsmiths, I have realised the hundreds of different pathways that the university prepares you for. I have studied as a solo performer but have also worked as an accompanist a lot around the College and around London. Whilst in College I have been the resident rehearsal pianist for Goldsmiths Chamber Choir under the direction of Caroline Lenton-Ward – including such fantastic repertoire such as Bernstein's Chichester Psalms and Mozart's Coronation Mass. I also had the privilege to be part of a new book release performance of Russian Music in partnership with Oxford University Press with the Chamber Choir. The College has opened many opportunities within central London as well, from singing in the Royal Albert Hall at Christmas, to playing for dozens of auditions and rehearsals for all manner of arts around London.

Over the last year alone, I have worked with many professionals in theatre. This included being Associate Musical Director of a revival of 'The Mikado' on Battersea Barge, eventually leading to me taking over as Musical Director for a run in Leicester Square. I also worked closely throughout the year with The National Youth Music Theatre. I worked as an assistant Musical Director of an award-winning revival of 'The Hired Man' at the St James' Theatre, Victoria alongside Tony winning orchestrator Sarah Travis.

Since studying at Goldsmiths, the knowledge, understanding and coaching for all those opportunities out there has taken me to a new level of musicianship, and thankfully to the help and support from all the staff at the Music Department, I will hopefully continue my journey to what I hope to be a busy and successful future."
