Classically trained at the Royal Northern College of Music, she is an accomplished soloist and has performed in various prestigious venues around the UK (such as Buxton Opera House, Sheffield City Hall and the Bridgewater Hall and Old Granada Studios), as well as numerous smaller local venues around Manchester.

Emily is an outstanding pianist. We felt privileged to have her playing at our wedding reception. She is extremely versatile and played for three hours with only short breaks. Her repertoire is impressive, from modern pop to Chopin and all of it was beautifully arranged and performed both on a keyboard and a piano. She created a superb atmosphere and our guests were full of admiration for her talent. I would strongly recommend Emily for your function.

Emily played piano for our Wedding and was incredible and very talented, she played all songs we requested very well. She played on both keyboard and piano, meaning I could walk down the aisle to my favourite song. We would definitely recommend Emily for any occasion.
