Having performed regularly in orchestras from the age of ten, Elin brings over a decade of experience and passion to every performance she gives. She is a first-class music graduate, having received a Merit Scholarship to further her studies, Elin achieved Distinction in her Masters in Music at Cardiff University. Since graduating from University in 2018, Elin has worked as a busy freelance musician. She regularly performs in a variety of classical concerts and acoustic gigs with the North Wales Camerata, North Wales Philharmonia, Opera Cymru, Brynafon String Quartet and alongside Welsh singer-songwriter Arfon Wyn in acoustic duo, Y2. Elin works as a session musician, recording for Welsh artists of all genres and for TV programmes on S4C. In 2019, Elin built and lunched her own music studio 'Stiwdio Siencyn' , furthering her career in remote recording for composers and as a producer. With the resource of a music studio, Elin produces high quality, bespoke backing tracks to accompany solo cello. This enhances all of her performances in concerts, weddings and corporate events. She happily receives song requests on bookings, allowing her to offer an exciting and varied repertoire list for each performance. In addition to her busy performance schedule, Elin teaches at the Gwynedd a Môn Music service and the William Mathias Music School. Elin also delivers music workshops for adults with disabilities through projects Discover the Song and Hidden Talents.

Elin Taylor has taken part in two performances for us recently at Canolfan Gerdd William Mathias Music Centre. Elin is great to work with- very organised, professional and reliable. Her performances at both events were excellent. She had carefully selected the repertoire to suit the occasions and had a lovely rapport with the audiences. We look forward to working with Elin again in the near future. Meinir Llwyd Roberts, Director.

Having known Elin for over 10 years, she is without a doubt one of the best musicians that I have had the opportunity to work with when performing at local, regional and national levels. I have had first hand experience as a client, through booking Elin for gigs/concerts/music projects, including the North Wales Camerata 2018 Christmas Concert - therefore I can guarantee that she is a trustworthy, reliable and dedicated musician. I have also performed with Elin on many occasions in quartets and orchestras - therefore I can guarantee that she is an excellent cellist. Elin is a first-class cellist, an enthusiastic and lovely person, and I cannot highly recommend her enough for bookings.
