At Birmingham Conservatoire Rachel is currently studying with a scholarship under Nathaniel Vallois but has studied under David Le Page and Daniel Roberts. She has a vast amount of orchestral experience having recently toured Germany and Austria with the International Regions Orchestra. She has gained experience working with members of the Welsh National Opera having gained a place on their scheme and has also played with Birmingham Conservatoire's Symphony Orchestra on many occassions in Venues such as Adrian Boult Hall, Symphony Hall and Birmingham's Town Hall. Rachel's repertoire has extended to playing in Birmingham Conservatoires Opera of Poulencs Dialouges de Carmilites and several Contemporary projects, concert and competitions hosted by the Compositional Department. With a passion for ensemble work Rachel is a member of Joe Broughton’s Conservatoire Folk Ensemble playing in festivals such as Shambala, Towersey, The Greenman Festival, The Fairport Convention to an audience of 20,000 and the highlight so far the Royal Albert Hall for the last night of the Music For Youth Proms. Rachel keenly participates in chamber work and has been a member of the Brandini Quartet, Leto Quartet, Dvorak Quintet and Eroica Camerata playing in many charity concerts and music festivals which has led to coaching from Eblana Trio, Navaara Quartet and Pavel Fischer. To develop and fine tune her skills Rachel attended the British Isles Music Festival in 2012 where she had master classes from Matthew Jones, Lisa Ueda and Professor RIchard Deakin. As well as being an accomplished Violinst Rachel has a natural flair for the Viola. At grade 8+ level Rachel has had master classes with Robert Salter and Matthew Jones and is greatly in demand as a viola player in quartet projects and shows. Rachel also provides private tuition and is passionate about developing the musical skills of the next generation. This has led her to write a booklet “Managing Performance Anxiety – A student Guideline”.
