We have previously booked Emily to play Cornet for us and we were delighted that she was able to play for us again in Cheltenham. From the onset she communicated well and listened to our requirements, providing advice and guidance. We were really pleased with how professional and easy she was to work with. She did a great job and played some wonderful music to a very high standard.

Just a brief note to say thank you for your wonderful playing at my daughters Wedding, the music just made the whole thing. Your trumpet playing had a lovely tone and was a delightful addition to the ceremony. Many people have commented on how wonderful your playing was and how much texture it added.
