Verified profile

I am a an International Acoustic/Electric Violinist trained at the renowned Royal Northern College of Music.Performance is my life, but more importantly creating the right atmosphere for each occasion. I have played as a soloist and a part of many groups and orchestras across the globe, I accept TV freelance work or touring with acts who require live musicians. I do not need sheet music to play and it is all done from memory. I am young , vibrant and open minded. I also love to dance, sing and act. I have studied each discipline since the age of four . Playing to fulfil my passion and perform to an audience who are drawn into my playing, getting my audience to listen and enjoy is an art in itself. Opportunities and being in the right place will only be available if you spread your wings and try different ventures. If Music be the food of love give me excess of it............................

We had Emma booked to do our wedding. It is actually difficult for me to review Emma as she advised a week before she was unable to attend. We had her replacement Danni come to do the wedding and we were over the moon with the performance. All of our guests were surprised and super impressed. She kept the tempo good and played lots of the songs we requested. My only negative comment would be I found the communication lacking in the few days before my wedding which led to an un needed stress on the morning of. But after getting in touch with Encore this was sorted.

Emma became unavailable, so she helpfully arranged for a violinist called Katie to perform on her behalf. Katie was AMAZING and just so lovely to work with.

Bride, 4 years ago

Emma from String infusion was fantastic. An extremely talented violinist who played a range of different music at our wedding. The music she played created a fabulous atmosphere. I would highly recommend Emma, she is very talented & very professional.:

Corporate, 4 years ago

The music and judgement in what play that best suited the audience were both fantastic. They interacted well and were thoroughly professional. - Many thanks Platinum International
