I graduated from Leeds College of Music in 2011 with a First class honors in Piano Performance also scooping the Micahel Grady Memorial Prize for Classical Composition. Whilst at Leeds I was fortunate to have studied Piano performance with Helen Reid. Staying on at Leeds for my Masters study in Classical Music Composition I graduated with a Merit in the summer of 2015, having studied with Damien Harron and Jacob Thompson-Bell.
"Jane is a sensitive and intelligent pianist with a strong musical personality. She is able to tackle works of all styles and genres with genuine enthusiasm and commitment, and is a confident performer." Helen Reid MA ARCM

Achieving a Merit in my MMus in Classical Music Compositioin has been a huge landmark in my career. Studying with Damion Harron and Jacob Thompson-Bell I have been able to develop my style, my musical voice and direction. This journey has been about finding a voice in a landscape of contemporary music which can often seem bleak. The course at Leeds College of Music has enabled me to confidently turn my thoughts and ideas into sound, finding something I want to say and having the tools to express this through music. My work has been described as "playfully provocative" which, I guess, sums it up nicely.
