“Leeds is the only place where I could pursue both my ambitions - classical cello and pop vocals.”

"LCoM was my first choice because they were the only UK conservatoire that let me get the balance just right in their BA (Hons) Combined course. The fact I can study pop vocals alongside classical cello with nationally and globally recognised teachers is just one example of their versatility.

I knew that the area’s creative buzz was going to be a great asset. I have all sorts of opportunities like collaborations that naturally come about; for example, through mentioning that I play cello in a pop ensemble I’ve had many studio sessions with singer-songwriters, whose producers then ask me to come back and record for their portfolios. It's a great way to network and challenge yourself."
