About Becky

Alto Saxophonist
Sheffield
Exciting and dynamic saxophonist and clarinetist experienced in house music, jazz, pit and function performance.

Becky is a professional saxophonist, clarinetist, ukulele player and singer, although she has turned her hand to a few other things along the way. After a false start as a philosopher, she graduated from Leeds University with a BA in music (majoring in performance), a secondary music PGCE, two Edinburgh Fringe sellout shows with the Leeds-based jazz-funk band add9 and a thirst for participating in as many musical opportunities as physically possible. Since then, she has been performing at festivals and events with various bands on the folk music circuit including the jazz-folk-funk band Steamchicken and the funk/Irish dance project Sciorr:Staged. She also plays live saxophone over house DJs and in wedding and function bands all over the country and abroad, including dates in Spain, Portugal, Belgium and Australia. Becky keeps her ear in by attending music sessions around her home town of Sheffield. She has continued to teach in various settings and noticing the benefits of music for young people led Becky to complete an apprenticeship with Opus Music CIC in 2016. After that, she founded Brightside Music CIC with violinist (Aisling Holmes) and they take live music into hospitals and healthcare settings across Yorkshire.

Becky and I have worked together regularly for over six years spanning musical theatre, an acoustic folk act and a funk folk fusion band. She is my go to collaborator and reeds player. She works well as part of a team, and has a facilitating manner, identifying an nurturing the skills of other team members. She has both an ear and sight playing ability. She excels on alto and clarinet, but is no slouch on tenor, baritone, oboe and flute; bass and bass guitar, ukulele and piano. She a strong singer with good pitch. She is equally at home in performance in large and small venues, workshop, rehearsal and recording studio. Engineers love her pitch and control. I am delighted to give this reference.
