About Elaine

Versatile session flautist London available for all events and recordings. Can perform solo or with other musicians/backing
Flautist
London

I am a versatile flautist with a wide range of musical experience and can play most styles. I completed my music degree at University of Surrey in 2001. Whilst there, I specialised in performance, performing solos, chamber music and in the university orchestra. After graduating, I performed the Nielsen Flute Concerto with Stoneleigh Youth Orchestra, have played for Epsom Symphony Orchestra, Croydon Symphony Orchestra and Thames Philharmonia, as well performing a variety of chamber music. Over the past decade, I have branched out from my classical routes; composing, improvising, recording and performing music in a wide range of musical styles e.g. reggae, folk, rock, electronic music and dance music with musicians, both in this country and internationally, forming various musical projects. I work as a freelance and session performer and currently work with various music producers, from many different countries. I also produce my own music, which I play live in this country and abroad and am making regular releases. I recently appeared on 'Don't Tell the Bride' playing Chinese xiao flute. I am available to play for weddings or funerals etc. Just let me know what you want me to play. I can play with a backing track, or solo. If you need suggestions, just ask me. I am available for recording sessions and any events. In addition to session work, I have been teaching the flute to children and adults since 1998 in schools, an adult education centre and privately. I completed my PGCE in 2004 and gained Qualified Teacher Status.

My father funeral was to be a low-key, grave side service but I wanted something to make the event special/memorable for those attending. I recalled a friend's funeral for her mother and that a flautist has been present. As short notice I found Elaine and she was very prompt at coming back to me and confirming she would be able to attend. She fully met my brief to provide Celtic style pieces (purchasing appropriate scores in order to meet my needs) and all those attending on the day commented how wonderful the music was and how this lifted the event (which is tough when it is a funeral!). The music was beautiful and something I will always remember when I look back to the occasion. (10/10)

Elaine participated in Sattar's band for the first time performing Persian music , She was well prepared and contributed to a very high level to the band on the Performance night at Soho Farmhouse on 27 January 2018. Elaine impressed me with her level of playing the flute , She proved to be a professional flute player as well as her good personality and for all the above quality She is on my top priority list of musicians who I may hire for Sattar's future performance in UK.
