Her teachers have included Marian Ingoldsby, Finghin Collins, Jan Čáp and Yekaterina Lebedeva and she is undertaking further piano studies in the Royal Irish Academy of Music this year.
She is in high demand as a piano accompanist and maintains a busy performance schedule while also running a successful teaching studio. As a violinist she has been a member of and soloist with several orchestras and ensembles with whom she has performed extensively throughout Europe.
Her interest in opera was first sparked when she was répétiteur for a production of Marian Ingoldsby’s Lily’s Labyrinth. In 2016 she was awarded a scholarship to study at the Académie d’été Nei Stëmmen, Luxembourg. Since then she has undertaken further operatic and vocal accompaniment studies in Italy, the UK and Greece under the tutelage of vocal coaches Matteo Dalle Fratte, Manolis Papasifakis and Roberto Mingarini and has been répétiteur for several other operatic productions.
