Verified profile
Pianist, accompanist, repetiteur, and piano teacher based in Cardiff.

Born and raised in Paris, Emma started her piano studies at the age of 6. A graduate of Cardiff University, where she studied English Linguistics, she has recently graduated from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama studying piano performance in the class of pianists Mary Dullea and James Kirby. Emma has had significant experience in collaborative music, performing with orchestra as well as smaller ensembles, within her piano trio and piano duet, or accompanying vocalists. She has taken part in Masterclasses with renowned artists Steven Osborne, Steven Devine, Richard MacMahon, Ji Liu, Michael Young, Graham Caskie, Simon Lepper and Robin Green. Emma has won the 2015 Bryan Davies accompaniment prize and was a finalist in the 2017 Mary Rees Chopin prize; she is now developing her career as an accompanist and vocal coach. She has been the principal pianist for the Constanza Ladies Choir since September 2016 and was delighted to begin work within the Forget Me Not Choir community in the Autumn of 2017. She is also a regular repetiteur for the Welsh National Opera Youth and Community Department. Her love of choral music took yet another direction when she joined the BBC National Chorus of Wales last September. She is delighted to be singing within such an established ensemble. As well as being a keen musician, Emma is also a dedicated piano tutor and has been enjoying teaching in Cardiff. Back home, she has been teaching piano and chamber music for the last three years in the summer school l’Académie de Musique de Lacarelle near Lyon.

Emma and Camille (the soprano she works with) were both fantastic - not only did they perform brilliantly but they responded quickly to my questions professionally in the run-up to the event. All the guests at our wedding said how they made the day extra special. Thank you both again! Lucy
