Aimée is a personable, affordable, Cardiff based violinist, available for teaching, freelance string work and events.
Aimée Storton is currently furthering her passion for music by studying for a Postgraduate Diploma in Music Performance at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, where she is involved in the Symphony and Chamber Orchestras. She graduated from the University of Huddersfield with a First Class Honours Degree in Music, where she was leader of the University Symphony and String Orchestras in her final year. As a member of Slaithwaite Philharmonic Orchestra, who featured on the BBC’s ‘All Together Now: The Great Orchestra Challenge’ and performed in Maida Vale studios, Aimée performed in large orchestral pieces, such as Wagner’s Der fliegende Hollander and Britten’s War Requiem. She also has experience in Chamber and Solo settings, taking part in masterclasses with professional musicians such as David Greed and Benjamin Nabarro. Before University, Aimée attended Yorkshire Young Musicians a centre for ‘exceptionally talented young musicians’, for seven years and was an important member of City of Leeds Youth Orchestra. She was the principal violinist for Bradford Youth Orchestra, performing in Paris, Austria, Luxembourg, and Germany. Aimée was also chosen to lead the orchestra in a prestigious performance at the Royal Albert Hall. Aimée’s love of both film soundtracks and the musical projects of Damon Albarn, have influenced her own compositions and research. Aimée has interests in a mix of musical genres and aspires to make music accessible to all, wishing to work with people from all styles and specialisms. Artists such as 2Cellos, the Vitamin String Quartet, and The Piano Guys, who present popular music on Classical instruments, have helped towards breaking down the ‘elitist’ view of Classical music. Not from a musical background herself, Aimée has experienced first-hand the positive impact music can have on people, from its therapeutic health benefits, to the improvement of concentration in children.
