From Dingwall, Emma has been playing the violin since the age of 8. Growing up she enjoyed learning both classical and traditional Scottish music, and has strived to keep both passions running simultaneously. She has a first-class honours degree in music from the University of Edinburgh, where she was leader of the three main student orchestras. This has given her the opportunity to work with inspiring conductors including Will Conway, Chris George and Russell Cowieson. Since graduating, she performs regularly with orchestras such as The Mahler Players and Amicus Orchestra. She is a founder member of the Hans Gal Piano trio, the Fyrish String Quartet, and neo-trad fiddle and clarsach duo, Turadh. She has also worked with Scottish Ballet, and with Magnetic Opera, where she was the soloist for their production of Menotti’s The Medium in London.
Emma is a full-time musician based in Edinburgh. She has built up a career portfolio that includes community music work, individual and ensemble teaching, solo and group performance.
